Jennifer's research is focused on developing methods for atmospheric remote sensing of water vapor and applying them to problems in forecasting and climate change, primarily through exploitation of the versatile Global Positioning System. The distribution of water vapor plays an important role in the transport of energy within the atmosphere. Knowledge of that distribution is critical to forecasting severe thunderstorms and precipitation and is critical to estimating the contribution of water vapor to global warming. Jennifer is developing, in collaboration with Jim Garrison in Aeronautical and Astronautical Engineering, a new GPS airborne remote sensing system to be deployed on the new High Performance Instrumented Airborne Platform for Environmental Research (HIAPER) aircraft.
