The project will benefit from CloudSat CPR and GPM DPR observations and will be conducted in collaboration with Co-Is from NASA Global Modeling and Assimilation Office and the Mesoscale Atmospheric Processes Laboratory.


Moradi joined Earth System Science Interdisciplinary Center (ESSIC), University of Maryland in 2011. His research is focused on microwave remote sensing including, calibration and validation of satellite microwave observations, retrieving geophysical variables from satellite microwave measurements, microwave radiative transfer modelling, assimilation of all-sky microwave observations into NWP models, and Observing System Simulation Experiments (OSSE). He is affiliated with NASA Global Modelling and Assimilation Office (GMAO) and NOAA Center for Satellite Applications and Research (STAR).
