Dr. Jensen’s research focuses on the use of both satellite and ground-based remote sensing observations in order to better understand the lifecycle of cloud systems and the role they play in the Earth’s energy balance. He has been actively involved with the Department of Energy’s Atmospheric Radiation Measurement Program since 1996 working on research projects studying the radiative impacts of deep convective clouds in the tropics, defining the characteristics of marine boundary layer clouds, and the retrieval of cloud microphysical properties from remote sensing observations. Dr. Jensen’s focus for ERIC21 is climate and hydrological modeling and analysis.
