Dr. Andrew Klein

Dr. Andrew Klein is a professor in the Department of Geography at Texas A&M University. His current research interests lie in the application of remote sensing and geographic information science (GIScience) techniques to study the cryosphere. His research group is currently using remote sensing to monitor tropical glacier recession and actively involved in developing algorithms to measure snow extent and snow albedo from data collected by NASA’s MODIS instrument. Since 1999, he has been involved in a long-term environmental monitoring program at McMurdo Station, Antarctica, and he and his colleagues have extended this monitoring program to Palmer Station.

Dr. Klein received a Ph.D. from Cornell University and a B.A. in geology and environmental studies from Macalester College.
