Dr. Lorraine Remer spent 21 years at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center involved in the remote sensing of aerosol and the use of remote sensing data for the study of aerosols in climate processes, how aerosol particles affect clouds, aerosol transport and particulate air pollution. Her first position at Goddard in 1991 was in the role of a support scientist, employed by Science Systems and Applications, Inc. (SSAI), where she contributed to the development of the MODIS aerosol algorithms.

In 1998 Dr, Remer joined the Federal civil service, and in 2012 she left NASA to become a part of JCET at UMBC. Dr. Remer has been a member of NASA’s MODIS, CloudSat/CALIPSO, NPP, Glory and Global Aerosol Climatology Project Science Teams. She has contributed to the U.S. Climate Change Science Change Program (US CCSCP) and to the WMO International Task Force on Hemispheric Transport of Air Pollution (HTAP). Her B.S. and Ph.D. are from the University of California, Davis (U.C. Davis), and her M.S. from the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, University of California, San Diego.
