Meet Dr. Gail Skofronick Jackson: Physical Scientist
Image of Dr. Gail JacksonDr. Jackson has an intense interest in the ice found in hurricane systems and has developed methods to measure the amount and sizes of ice particles above the melting layer. The cloud ice in hurricane systems can help predict changes in hurricane intensity. Also, ice particles typically fall out as rain and affect surface accumulation totals and flooding. During the winter, non-hurricane season, Dr. Jackson uses her research methods to characterize the ice particles in winter blizzards and falling snow events.

Dr. Gail Skofronick Jackson is currently a physical scientist at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center and has authored more than 15 professional papers.
