Project Scientist

As ICESat-2’s project scientist, Thorsten Markus’ favorite part of his job is watching anticipation build among researchers for the mission’s first set of height measurements. Thorsten was first drawn to cryosphere science as an undergraduate student, when he went on a research cruise to Antarctica and saw its phenomenal icy ecosystems with seals, penguins and more. He is also the Cryospheric Sciences Laboratory chief at Goddard, and outside of work is in a band with several other lab scientists, sails and plays tennis.
