Bio: 

James J. Butler has served as EOS Calibration Scientist since 1995 and Deputy NPP Project Scientist for Instruments and Calibration since 2004. He also serves as Principal Investigator of the Code 614.4 Radiance and Diffuser Calibration Laboratories. He received the BS degree in physical chemistry from the University of Notre Dame in 1977 and the PhD degree in physical chemistry from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1982. He is currently an optical physicist in the Biospheric Sciences Branch at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center.

Dr. Butler’s research experience currently includes the calibration and characterization of remote sensing instrumentation and optical metrology. His previous research experience at NASA includes ground-based and balloon-borne lidar for the detection of stratospheric molecular and radical species and laser-induced fluorescence of molecules and radicals. As a research associate at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), he conducted research in the photoionization and dissociation dynamics of state selected hydrocarbons and in photoelectron spectroscopy.

Dr. Butler is a member of the Optical Society of America and the American Geophysical Union.
