TEAM

TES Science Investigators

The Science Investigators team are responsible for defining the algorithms and strategies for data processing at all levels (L1B, L2, and L3), specifying the science operation scenarios (Global Surveys and Special Observations), validation of TES data products through comparisons with correlative measurements, providing scientific support for TES data users, and performing science data analyses. TES has two Science Team leaders called Principle Investigators:

  • Kevin Bowman, Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Principal Investigator
  • Jessica Neu, Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Deputy Principal Investigator
  • John Worden, Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Principal Investigator (Emeritus)
  • Reinhard Beer, Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Principal Investigator (Emeritus)

TES Project Team

View an inclusive directory of all those working on the TES Project during the operational phase of the mission.

  • The Ground Data System Team is responsible for ingesting, processing and archiving TES data.
  • The Instrument Operations Team is responsible for instrument command uploading and instrument health and safety.
  • TES also has a Project Office, responsible for conducting overall Project management.
