Research with the Microwave Geophyics Group
at The University of Michigan

The Microwave Geophysics (MWGP) group is a multi-disciplinary research group at the University of Michigan headed by Professor Tony England. It is homed both in the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) department and in the Atmosphereic, Oceanic and Space Sciences (AOSS) department with connections to the University of Michigan Radiation Lab (RADLab) and the Space Physics Research Lab (SPRL). The research focus of MWGP is on the land/air interface energy and moisture flux and its relationship to near-term climate and weather prediction and modeling.

MWGP designs, constructs and uses microwave radiometers as part of its research. These radiometers measure natural microwave radiation emitted from all matter in order to determine some physical property of the scene.

In the late spring of 2002 I was hired by Roger DeRoo as a summer research intern for MWGP. It was my task to design the microcontroller software used to control four microwave radiometers as part of the TMRS-3 (Truck Mounted Radiometer System) rebuild. However, my task responsibilities grew to include a number of support systems. I left the group in the late winter of 2004.
