From Great Expanses of Grass to Great Expanses of Marine Phyto-plankton (or “OK, Now What Do I Do”)



In this Maniac Talk, Dr. Charles McClain discusses growing up in a rural Missouri agricultural community, (i.e., wheat, soybeans, corn, alfalfa), and how his becoming a scientist and an employee at NASA Goddard for 35 years with a focus on remote sensing of marine ecosystems was essentially by happenstance.  He focuses on some of the scientists and educators with whom he has worked, and the early years at Goddard, leading up to the Sea-viewing Wide Field-of-View Sensor (SeaWIFS) project.
