Aaron Naeger

Dr. Naeger is currently a Research Scientist for the SPoRT project and serves as the Deputy Program Applications (DPA) Lead for the NASA Tropospheric Emissions: Monitoring of Pollution (TEMPO) Mission. His primary activities focus on aerosol and air quality research including the development of value-added products derived from multi-sensor satellite data and assimilation of satellite data in weather and air quality models. He has a particular interest in the application of trace gas and aerosol products from geostationary satellite measurements for advancing air quality monitoring capabilities and human health research. As DPA Lead, he manages the TEMPO Early Adopters Program with the goal of maximizing the value of TEMPO data after launch of the instrument in mid-2022. Dr. Naeger also has extensive experience in using satellite and field data to validate and refine microphysics parameterizations in the Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) model. Other previous research activities include diagnosing aerosol-cloud-precipitation interactions in the WRF with chemistry (WRF-Chem) model and tracking volcanic plumes and dust storms using geostationary satellite data.
