Santha Akella – CP-TT

Research Oceanographer at GSFC, NASA

Santha is co-chair of the CP-TT together with Chris Harris and Kristian Mogensen. He works at NASA’s Global Modeling and Assimilation Office (GMAO), and his research focuses on the development, testing and `operational’ integration of the ocean and sea-ice model components into the next generation atmosphere-ocean coupled earth system model. Goals of his work include modeling near-sea surface processes that couple ocean, sea-ice, waves to the atmosphere, and direct radiance assimilation of the relevant satellite and in-situ observations in NASA GMAO’s Integrated Earth Analysis System (IESA). He is an advocate of open-source collaborative software development.
