Pioneering wildfire monitoring at NASA: Iowa informatics alumnus Meng Zhou shares his story

Friday, June 14, 2024
Meng Zhou earned his PhD in informatics from the University of Iowa in Dec.'23 and has embarked on a new role as an assistant scientist at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). His research focuses on using satellite remote sensing to monitor environmental conditions, particularly pollutants like PM2.5 and nighttime wildfires. The unique aspect of Zhou’s work is that he utilizes sensors that operate at night, leveraging moonlight scattered by polluted air to monitor air quality. For wildfires, he developed an innovative algorithm to assess their intensity and combustion phases, providing critical data on how many pollutants, such as PM2.5, black carbon, and CO, will be emitted to the air by the wildfire.
