Dr. Tamlin Pavelsky is Associate Professor of Global Hydrology in the Department of Geological Sciences, University of Carolina at Chapel Hill. His research interests are focused on the intersections between hydrology, satellite remote sensing, and climate change. His work spans scales ranging from a single large wetland to the entire globe to, with a special interest in Arctic and Subarctic regions. His research projects aim to address three questions: How can satellite remote sensing be used to understand the storage and movement of surface water? How accurately can regional climate models simulate hydrologic processes? How is anthropogenic warming impacting Arctic hydrologic and climatic systems? He is also the U.S. Hydrology Science Lead for the forthcoming NASA/CNES/CSA Surface Water and Ocean Topography satellite mission.
