Claude R. Duguay
Claude R. Duguay received the B.S. degree in physical geography from the University of Montreal (Montreal, QC, Canada), the M.A. degree in geography (GIS) from the State University of New York at Buffalo (Buffalo, NY, USA), and the Ph.D. degree in geography (remote sensing/climatology) from the University of Waterloo (Waterloo, ON, Canada). He has held previous faculty positions at the University of Ottawa (Ottawa, ON, Canada, 1989–1995), Laval University (Quebec City, QC, Canada, 1996–2002), and the University of Alaska (Fairbanks, Alaska, 2002–2006) before joining the University of Waterloo in July 2006. Duguay served as a Visiting Scientist at the Canada Centre for Remote Sensing in 1993, the International Arctic Research Center, University of Alaska Fairbanks in 2000, and the European Space Agency (ESA), ESRIN, in 2012. In 2008, he founded the Interdisciplinary Centre on Climate (IC3), a research cluster consisting of 40 members from diverse faculties at the University of Waterloo and from Environment Canada. Duguay has authored/coauthored over 170 publications and more than 350 presentations on topics related to cryosphere (ice and snow) and climate, lake/land-atmosphere interactions, remote sensing, and numerical modeling. Results from his research have appeared in climate assessment reports such as IPCC 2007. Duguay is a Fulbright Fellow (Canadian Scholar). He is past Vice-President of the International Commission on Remote Sensing, International Association of Hydrological Sciences (2007–2011); past Head of the Marine and Freshwater Ice Division, International Association of Cryospheric Sciences (2007–2011); and former Member (2008–2012) of the Polar Distributed Active Archive Center (DAAC) User Working Group (PoDAG), operated at the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) at the University of Colorado Boulder. From 2006 to 2013, Duguay was a Member of the Mission Assessment Group for the Cold Regions Hydrology High-resolution Observatory (CoReH2O), an Earth Explorer candidate satellite mission of ESA.
