JT Reager is a Research Scientist in the Surface Hydrology group, in the Earth Sciences Section. He studies the Earth's water cycle with a particular focus on hydrologic extremes, sea level rise and water resources. He joined JPL in 2014.
My research focuses on the study of Water in the Earth System, primarily using space-based observations. I am most interested in working on improving our understanding of hydrological processes, uncertainties and observational gaps across the interfaces of ocean/land water cycling, carbon/water interactions, and water/solid earth interactions. I also study human impacts on the Earth System and natural resource sustainability.
