Biography

Dr. Stackhouse is a Senior Research Scientist at the NASA Langley Research Center in Hampton, Virginia where he is responsible for numerous projects estimating global radiative energy quantities such as surface solar energy from satellite measurements. For instance, he is lead scientist of the NASA/Global Energy and Water Cycle Experiment (GEWEX) Surface Radiation Budget (SRB) Project, a project responsible to use satellite and other analysis to estimate the long-term surface radiation budget and components. He is also co-lead of the Clouds and Earth Radiant Energy System (CERES) FLASHFlux (Fast Longwave and Shortwave radiative Fluxes) working group that produces near-real estimates of top-of-atmosphere and surface radiation data products from CERES. Using the long-term and near-real time data products from the science projects above, Dr. Stackhouse leads several NASA-funded Applied Science projects that customize these data products, along with meteorological input, for the renewable energy-related and agricultural industries (see http://power.larc.nasa.gov). These applied science projects have led to the development of data sets and web interface tools for distributing solar energy and other quantities for the last 15 years including the new SSE-GIS web portal providing web mapping and data services for users of renewable energy information. Dr. Stackhouse completed his M.S. and Ph.D. in Atmospheric Sciences at Colorado State University in 1989 and 1995 respectively.
