photo of Felix KoganFelix Kogan received a M.S. in Agricultural Meteorology from Odessa Meteorological Institute, USSR and a Ph.D. in Environmental Sciences from the World Meteorological Center, Moscow, USSR. After serving as a Senior Scientist at the World Meteorological Center in Moscow, USSR until 1980, he spent five years at the University of Missouri-Columbia as a Research Associate. Felix joined NESDIS in 1985, applying his expertise to a number of areas, including remote sensing; ecosystems; climate and weather impact assessments; land cover/land use change; monitoring droughts, desertification and deforestation; mosquito-borne diseases; productivity of land landscape; some issues of agriculture and forestry; agricultural meteorology and climatology; and environmental zoning.

Interests & Duties

Research and development in the application of satellite data to the solution of environmental problem with the specific emphasis on land and atmosphere. The topics include climate and weather impacts on ecosystems and human activities, climate variability, environmental hazards, satellite data application and interpretation. Developed advanced technique for monitoring drought, fire risk, El Nino/La Nina features, and mosquito-borne epidemics from operational environmental satellites. Principal investigator of numerous national and international projects funded by the Agency for International Development, by-national funds, UN=s Food and Agricultural Organization, NATO and NOAA. International cooperation activities with government institutions, universities, and private organizations transferring new technologies. Author and co- author more than 150 scientific papers, including book chapters.

Felix's current projects include the following:

  • Research and development in the application of satellite data to the solution of environmental problems with the specific emphasis on land and atmosphere.
  • Studies of climate and weather impacts on ecosystems and human activities, climate variability, environmental hazards, land cover land use change, satellite data application and interpretation.
  • Developing advanced technique and products for monitoring drought, fire risk, El Niño/La Niña-related land cover features, and diseases / epidemics from operational environmental satellites.
  • Developing data sets the for Global Earth Observing System of Systems (GEOSS).

Felix has acted as Principal Investigator of numerous national and international projects funded by the Agency for International Development, the United Nations Food and Agricultural Organization, NATO and NOAA. He has lead global-scale international cooperation with government institutions, universities, and private organizations in transferring new technologies. He is a member of the UN World Meteorological Organization (WMO) Technical Team and of the editorial board of the Indian Journal of Remote Sensing.
