Chelle L. Gentemann is a senior principal scientist at Remote Sensing Systems, a California corporation in Santa Rosa, California. Her research focuses on air-sea interactions, upper ocean physical processes, microwave remote sensing of geophysical variables including sea surface temperature and sea ice, and multi-sensor data fusion. She received a B.S. from Massachusetts Institute of Technology, a M.S. in Physical Oceanography from Scripps Institution of Oceanography, and a Ph.D. in Meteorology and Physical Oceanography from the University of Miami. She has served on many national and international science teams and working groups including the NASA Sea Surface Temperature Science Team, the NASA Satellite Ocean Atlas team, the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) GCOM-W AMSR2 Science Team, the International Group for High Resolution SST (GHRSST) Science Team and Advisory Council, and the MIT Educational Council. She is currently chair of the NASA PO.DAAC User Working Group. In 2008, she was principal investigator of the Multi-sensor Improved Sea Surface Temperature (MISST) Project that received the National Oceanographic Partnership Program Excellence in Partnering Award. In 2001, she was part of the Satellite Ocean Atlas Team that was awarded the NASA Group Achievement Award for outstanding achievement in utilization of multiple observations from space for the study of the global oceans. She currently has 28 peer-reviewed papers published and is a member of the American Geophysical Union (AGU), American Meteorological Society (AMS), and IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society.
