Dr. Anand Inamdar is a Research Scholar with NCICS. Since joining NCICS in 2010, Dr. Inamdar has worked on several projects, including calibration of the geostationary visible channel for all GEO satellites for the period 1983—2015 using as reference the AVHRR/PATMOS data, developing schemes to retrieve the net surface solar radiation from geostationary visible channel by adapting the CERES top-of-atmosphere to surface algorithms, supporting the transition of the International Satellite Cloud Climatology Project (ISCCP) to NCEI, and developing current HIRS-like (High resolution Infrared Radiation Sounder) data from the new generation sensors like IASI (Infrared Atmospheric Sounding Interferometer).
Dr. Inamdar obtained his PhD working on numerical analyses of radiative transfer in the atmosphere from the Department of Mechanical Engineering of Indian Institute of Science (Bangalore, India). His research interests include the study of earth radiation budgets, remote sensing of land surface parameters, and surface energy balance from satellites.
