Dr. Christopher Potter
Dr. Christopher Potter is currently a NASA Senior Research Scientist in the Biospheric Branch at Ames Research Center. He holds a Ph.D. and a Master's degree in forest ecology from Emory University. He came to NASA in 1990 as a National Research Council (NRC) Associate. He and his colleagues were awarded NASA's Public Service Medal for development of the first computer model for global ecosystem exchange of all major biogenic trace gases with the atmosphere. Dr. Potter has been a NASA Science Team Member on the Large-Scale Biosphere-Atmosphere Experiment in Amazonia (LBA-ECO I and II), EOS Interdisciplinary Science (EOS-IDS) , Intelligent Data Understanding , NASA's Astrobiology Institute, the Boreal Ecosystem-Atmosphere Study (BOREAS), and Land Surface Hydrology. He is the author of over 50 peer-reviewed journal articles and book chapters.

In 2007, Dr. Potter was selected as a NASA Ames Associate Fellow in recognition of exceptional scientific research achievement. And in 2010 & 2011, the CASA team recieved awards for their work in forest carbon.

Steven A. Klooster

Steven A. Klooster is a Senior Research Scientist with California State University - Monterey Bay (CSUMB) at the NASA-Ames Research Center (ARC) in the Earth Science Division. He holds a Master of Science in Engineering and Environmental Studies from the University of Wisconsin - Madison, WI.

He designs and develops and implements global modeling software for studies of greenhouse trace gas fluxes to study climatic change. This is accomplished by coupling a raster/GIS based simulation modeling system that is compatible with remote sensing satellite data bases, scientific visualization tools and geographic information system analysis techniques (GIS). He has ported this model to several parallel computer systems.
