Sasser completed her Undergraduate degree as a CESSRST fellow and is now pursuing her Master’s degree and continuing her training in NOAA mission enterprise. Sasser is interested in renewable and sustainable energy sources to help protect the earth’s environment. Her current research on wind lidar aligns with her interests and future professional goals.
The project helped Sasser gain further knowledge on the basics of Doppler Lidar measurements, technical parameters, type of scans, and scanning patters, while also furthering her knowledge of how to interpret lidar data and images. This opportunity also helped advance her knowledge of the role of atmospheric conditions and stability regimes of BLH dynamics.
