Meet the Users is a NESDIS User Engagement speaker series which invites end users in society to share their thematic uses of NOAA data, products and services.  This series is an opportunity to bring awareness to the opportunities, benefits, and impact NOAA data has in society.

Dr. Antarpreet Jutla is an Associate Professor at the University of Florida’s Department of Environmental Engineering Sciences. Dr. Jutla holds a degree in Agricultural Engineering from Punjab Agricultural University in India, an M.Sc. in Water Resources from the University of Saskatchewan, Canada, and a Ph.D. in Water Resources from Tufts University. Dr. Jutla's current research focuses on water quality and air quality and the use of ocean color data for coastal health.

Dr. Jutla’s research focus includes Water Systems, coastal & oceanographic engineering, new infrastructure planning and management, and systems ecology & ecological engineering. Through this work, Dr. Jutla aims to understand the complex roles of humans in the hydrological cycle, the balance of natural and human systems, and how to build infrastructure for a more sustainable environment.

In this talk, Dr. Jutla will describe how he uses existing observations from VIIRS and MODIS for his coastal health modeling.
