Mars Climate Sounder Deputy Principal Investigator, Jet Propulsion Laboratory
Armin Kleinboehl is the Deputy Principal Investigator of the Mars Climate Sounder (aboard NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter) team at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. His main research interests are: the retrieval of atmospheric parameters from measurements of the Martian atmosphere to study its structure, dynamics, and composition; measurement of structure and chemical composition of Earth's middle atmosphere; and remote sensing of atmospheres in the infrared and microwave wavelength regions.
Armin holds a Diplom (M.Sc.) in Physics from the University of Frankfurt (Main), Germany, and a Ph.D. in Atmospheric Physics from the University of Bremen, Germany. From 2004–2007 he worked as a post-doctoral researcher at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, and has been a research scientist there ever since. His list of publications can be viewed on his JPL Earth and Planetary Atmospheres People web page, and he can be contacted via this web form.
Observations made by the Mars Climate Sounder, an instrument aboard NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, have revealed new information about atmospheric tides on the Red Planet.
