There are thousands of satellites moving around the earth, which collected huge amount of data suitable for various kinds of analysis, but underutilized. On June 12, let us gather together to hear directly from a NASA JPL leading scientist, about this treasure of data sets and about how to analyze them to produce great impacts, like to predict climate change and natural hazards.
Our speaker Hui Su received a B.Sc. in Atmospheric Dynamics from Peking University and a Ph.D. in Atmospheric Sciences from University of Washington. Currently, she is a Principal Scientist in Earth Science Section of Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL). She worked as a Staff Research Associate and Assistant Researcher at UCLA prior to working at JPL. Dr. Su received the JPL Lew Allen Award for Excellence in 2008 and NASA Exceptional Scientific Achievement Medal in 2010 for “major advances in the understanding of water vapor and cloud feedbacks on climate change through quantitative analysis of observations from multiple NASA satellites.” She has published about 100 peer-reviewed articles. Dr. Su is an Editor of Geophysical Research Letter. Her research interest is primarily in climate dynamics and convective processes.
To serve more in our community, we will also broadcast this event to our RMDS Irvine site at 17875 Von Karman, Irvine. So everyone in Orange county is welcome to attend this event at our partner theDevMasters's office in 17875 Von Karman, Irvine.
Thanks to our co-organizer, WeEducation, this time in Pasadena, we will gather in their location at 525 E Colorado Blve, Pasadena, CA.
