John Streicher

My area of expertise is developing models of solar irradiance, and integrating those models into applied problems in photobiology and photochemistry. My current photochemistry application is in the development of a comprehensive radiance model that will be used to calculate spectral actinic flux in the Community Multiscale Air Quality (CMAQ) modeling system. The radiance model will incorporate atmospheric, geodesic, and physiographic independent variables. Recent photobiology applications have integrated radiative transfer models with 3‑D graphic models of the human form to develop a comprehensive source-to-dose software platform to study the relationship of solar irradiance to skin cancers, cataract induction, and UV-induced immunosuppression. Photobiology applications with an ecological theme have included remote sensing image processing (also known as “atmospheric correction”) of upwelling radiance to derive surface reflectance, which is used for surface materials identification.
