About Me:

Dr. Donald W. Hillger earned a B.S. in Physics (1973) from the University of Minnesota, and a Masters (1976) and Ph.D. (1983) in Atmospheric Science from Colorado State University. He continued as a Post Doctoral Fellow and later as a Research Associate at the Cooperative Institute for Research in the Atmosphere (CIRA) at Colorado State University before joining the Regional And Mesoscale Meteorology (RAMM) Branch of NOAA/NESDIS as a research meteorologist in 1987.
Dr. Hillger specializes in satellite meteorology from geostationary and polar-orbiting platforms, as well as satellite instrument calibration/validation, satellite data/image quality, and planning for advanced and future instrumentation. He has published many scientific journal publications, technical reports, and has made presentations at numerous national and international scientific meetings. Publications include journal articles, conference papers and presentations, technical reports, and in-house publications.
Current research emphasis includes analysis of multi-spectral and hyper-spectral imagery and the development of image products from those datasets, utilizing computer-intensive analysis methodology. Other emphasis includes the science checkout of operational geostationary and polar-orbiting satellites (such as GOES and NPP/JPSS) after launch.
