Brian G. Alberding ()

Dr. Alberding is a research chemist for the Remote Sensing Group in the Sensor Science Division of the Physical Measurement Laboratory at NIST. His current research interests involve development of advanced methodologies for calibration and characterization of remote sensing systems. He is a member of the SIRCUS (Spectral Irradiance and Radiance Calibrations using Uniform Sources) laboratory and participates in the radiometric calibration of various instruments used in remote sensing. He also conducts research towards ground-based laser propagation for on-orbit remote sensor calibration.
