Huffington Post Chats with Ghassem R. Asrar

Dr. Ghassem Asrar, often sought out for his technical expertise, was interviewed by the Huffington Post for an article in a recent blog post. Asrar is the director of the Joint Global Change Research Institute, a partnership between Pacific Northwest National Laboratory and the University of Maryland. His pre-PNNL portfolio is impressive with appointments to World Climate Research Program (WCRP) and U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).

The recent Huffington Post blog takes readers on a journey from his childhood in Iran to his recent acceptance of an Exceptional Performance Award from NASA. The goal of the interview is "harnessing the untapped potential of Iranian-Americans, and building the capacity of the Iranian diaspora in effecting positive change in the U.S. and around the world."

Asrar's research interests are grounded in:

  • Earth system science research and education
  • Multi-spectral remote sensing of Earth's biosphere and atmosphere
  • Modeling mass, energy and the transfer of heat energy (radiation exchange) between Earth's surface and atmosphere
