In the wake of a fire, a burn scar appears which takes a long time to heal. This scar is from the Woolsey fire which has taken its toll around Thousand Oaks, California.

Dr. Norman Loeb leads a large team dedicated to ensuring the success of CERES, from beginning to end. Loeb says working with and learning from this outstanding group of scientists and engineers has helped him grow professionally and personally.

Loeb has been a physical scientist for 14 years, and he received the prestigious 2009 William T. Pecora Award on behalf of the efforts by the entire CERES science team for outstanding contributions to the understanding of the Earth by means of remote sensing. This year, Loeb also received this year’s Exceptional Scientific Achievement medal, which is awarded for an unusually significant scientific contribution toward achieving NASA’s mission. While his contributions have been significant, Loeb feels like he still has more work to do. He hopes to one day see a multi-decadal climate data record of the Earth’s radiation budget to help improve our understanding of climate.

When Loeb isn’t digging through satellite data, he enjoys over 35 pick-up basketball in Virginia Beach, Va. and walking his dog Cruiser with his wife.

Loeb has degrees from McGill University and York University.
