Dr. Glynn Hulley is a member of the Carbon Cycle and Ecosystems group at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. His research interests include the remote sensing and retrieval of Earth surface land surface temperature and emissivity, urban climate science, heat waves and extreme temperatures, public health, ecosystem and hydrological processes. Glynn is an expert on multi- and hyperspectral thermal infrared spectroscopy, and is a member of several instrument and product development teams including ECOSTRESS, MODIS, Suomi-NPP, and Landsat. A key aspect of Glynn's research is the development of new techniques to analyze and extract land surface temperature and emissivity (LST&E) from thermal remotely sensed data. Techniques and algorithms developed by Glynn have been incorporated into commercial packages by NASA and are widely used by researchers. He is principle investigator for the development and validation of standard NASA Land Surface Temperature (LST) and emissivity products for MODIS, VIIRS and Landsat, and is the level-2 thermal lead for the ECOSTRESS mission. He has also worked extensively with a new airborne Hyperspectral Thermal Emission Spectrometer (HyTES) developed at JPL in 2013 in an effort to develop pre-cursor data and to test algorithms for future thermal infrared missions such as NASA' Surface Biology and Geology (SBG) designated observable.
