Summary: Dr. Smith is Distinguished Professor of the Department of Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences at the Hampton University, Hampton Virginia and Professor Emeritus of the Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences at the University of Wisconsin – Madison. Professor Smith was the Principal Investigator of several satellite programs for NOAA (1966‐1984), Professor of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences at the University of Wisconsin‐Madison (1984‐1997) where he also directed the Cooperative Institute for Meteorological Satellite Studies (CIMSS) and subsequently the positions of Chief, Atmospheric Sciences Division, and Senior Scientist at the NASA’s Langley Research Center (1997‐2004). Dr. Smith is an active satellite and airborne experimentalist. He has been Principal Investigator of three highly successful Nimbus research satellite experiments. Most notably, Dr. Smith pioneered the hyper‐spectral resolution sounding technique that is being used for current and future polar satellite advanced infrared sounding systems (e.g., the Aqua/AIRS, MetOp/IASI, and NPP/NPOESS CrIS). Dr. Smith is the Principal Scientist for the Geostationary Imaging Fourier Transform Spectrometer (GIFTS) completed as an engineering development unit and prototype for future geostationary satellite operational sounding sensors (e.g., the GOES‐HES). Dr. Smith is also the Principal Investigator of numerous aircraft infrared remote‐sensing systems including the high altitude High resolution Interferometer Sounder and the NPOESS Aircraft Sounding Testbed Interferometer, which flies aboard the NASA ER‐2, WB‐57, and the Northrop‐ Grumman Proteus aircraft. Dr. Smith was the innovator and principal investigator of the Ocean Temperature Interferometric Survey (OTIS) experiment, conducted with a shipboard implementation of the Atmospheric Emitted Radiance Interferometer in January 1995. The success of the OTIS led to the production of the Marine Atmospheric Emitted Radiance Interferometer (M‐AERI), recognized world wide as the most accurate sea surface skin temperature measurement device in existence. Dr. Smith has published more than 150 papers in the scientific literature and has contributed to books used for scientific research and teaching. Dr. Smith has received numerous awards for his research accomplishments in the field of atmospheric science.
