Biography

Wood works in the areas of hydroclimatology with an emphasis on land atmospheric interactions, terrestrial remote sensing, and hydrologic impacts from climate change. His modeling focuses on the terrestrial water and energy balances and fluxes over a range of spatial and temporal scales, and his remote-sensing research focuses on estimating the hydrologic and energetic states of the terrestrial system and on validating satellite retrievals on land surface states. These modeling and remote-sensing activities are complemented through several field experiments in the U.S. and Canada. Wood is a Fellow of the American Geophysical Union and of the American Meteorological Society. He has received the Robert E. Horton Award from AGU and was awarded the AMS 2001 Robert E. Horton Lectureship. His research funding comes primarily from NASA, NOAA (Office of Global Programs), and NSF.
