Dr. Abhishek Chatterjee

Dr. Abhishek Chatterjee joined USRA and NASA Goddard’s Global Modeling and Assimilation Office in 2015, and has deep experience in carbon cycle science, Earth system models and utilization of remote-sensing data to quantify vulnerability of the global carbon cycle to environmental changes and human interventions. His primary expertise is in modeling carbon dioxide and methane source-sink distributions at global to regional scales, studying linkages between the carbon cycle and climate in key regions of change such as the Northern high-latitudes, and understanding interactions between the carbon-water-energy cycles. Dr. Chatterjee is part of three different NASA Science Teams -- the Orbiting Carbon Observatory-2/3 (OCO-2/3), the Arctic and Boreal Vulnerability Experiment (ABoVE) and the Carbon Monitoring System (CMS). He was also one of the lead authors of the Second State of the Carbon Cycle Report (SOCCR2) - a special interagency report that assessed the last decade of carbon cycle advances across North America and contributed to the Congressionally mandated Fourth National Climate Assessment (NCA4).
