Professor Jennifer Haase is a geophysicist and atmospheric scientist who has developed and implemented Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) observation techniques for remote sensing of the atmosphere and the Earth, with the long term goals of improving societal resilience to natural disasters. She has more than 25 years of experience in GNSS science in a diverse range of applications in both the private sector and academic research environment. She works in two broad research areas: 1) Earthquakes, seismic hazard, and tsunami hazard and 2) hazards from severe weather using GPS signals as a remote sensing technique from aircraft and stratospheric balloons. She comes from Scripps Institution of Oceanography at University of California San Diego, where she and her team have recently executed the first measurements of equatorial waves using radio occultation observations from stratospheric superpressure balloons. She has been heavily involved in the study and forecasting of Atmospheric River storms and hurricanes using radio occultation observations from aircraft.
Haase received her bachelor’s in geophysics from California Institute of Technology and her PhD in Earth science from Scripps Institution of Oceanography.
