Andrew Banks

Andrew Banks joined NPL in 2015 from the European Commission - DG Joint Research Centre, where he was a scientific officer in satellite oceanography conducting research into the optical remote sensing of extremes in European and African Seas and ocean colour data processing in support of Copernicus climate and marine services (including cloud masking, atmospheric correction, georeferencing, radiative transfer modelling, spectral analysis and database administration). Andrew brings with him more than 20 years' professional experience in earth observation science. He holds an MSc in remote sensing from UCL and Imperial and a PhD in remote sensing and environmental physics from the NERC Environmental Systems Science Centre at the University of Reading (now part of NCEO). Prior to working for the European Commission, he was responsible for oceanographic remote sensing at the Hellenic Centre for Marine Research, managing international projects using remote sensing to look at various aspects of the marine and coastal environment. At NPL, Andrew's research is within the framework of improving earth observation measurements of essential climate variables (ECVs) and presently focused on the impact that atmospheric correction has on satellite measurements of ECVs and their uncertainty.
