Maniac Talk - Satellite Observations - the Touchstone of Atmospheric Modeling
I came to GSFC (Atmospheric Chemistry and Dynamics Branch) in 1981 following a lengthy graduate school career that featured two universities, experimental work, development of a primitive atmospheric model and a growing family. The maze I call my scientific career is filled with unexpected twists and turns and even a few blind alleys, but most of the time satellite measurements of ozone and other trace gases have been my touchstone (metaphor - means of establishing the relative merits of a concept). This talk will feature examples that show how modeling grounded by observations continues to advance.
