I am developing an internationally recognized research
program that addresses fundamental questions on the analysis and prediction
of atmospheric and surface hydrologic processes and variables at both weather
and climate scales. The focus of my program is on two generalized areas
of research. These are:
1. Improving the remote sensing of precipitation process
at all scales through development of new technologies and techniques;
2. Improve the analysis and prediction of atmospheric
and surface hydrologic variables through the assimilation of remotely sensed
data in dynamic models and physically based radiometric algorithms.

Major Funded Research Activities:
Since September 1998 Dr. Anagnostou is member of NASA's
Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM)
science team. His TRMM project is to investigate the potential of using
TRMM Precipitation Radar data in calibrating ground-based weather radar
systems (such as the WSR-88D). Click here
to find more about this project.
In Spring 1999 Dr. Anagnostou won the prestigious multi-year
New Investigator (NIP) Award. Dr. Anagnostou NIP research is
towards understanding the error characteristics of precipitation estimates
from microwave (active and passive) and infrared satellite-based sensors.
In collaboration with the University of Padova, and with
funding provided by the Environment and Climate Program of the European
Commission, Dr. Anagnostou is researching issues of radar-rainfall estimation
and rainfall-runoff modeling for operational hydrologic forecasting.
In 2002 he was awarded from the Geosciences program of National
Science Foundation a CAREER Award, for proposal entitled “Improved knowledge
on precipitation microphysics for advancing radar rainfall estimation and
quantitative precipitation forecasting”.
