UA's Titan weather forecaster

Emily Schaller is a Hubble Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Arizona where she uses "NASA’s Infrared Telescope Facility (IRTF) on Mauna Kea in Hawaii to monitor methane clouds on Titan, where bizarre weather patterns could explain the extraordinary lakes, streams, and channels observed on Saturn’s largest moon."

Discover magazine interviewed her in the June issue about her work and posted that interview online a couple weeks ago in a piece titled, "5 Questions for the Woman Who Watches Weather—on Saturn's Moon Titan." [right, photo from Discover magazine]
