To Lisa and friends and family,
I wanted to add my belated remarks to those remembering Rob. His was a quiet
and ever so effective voice for joining our intellects on tough, important
issues so that our work can more effectively contribute to the needs of the
planet. Satellites and data can be so exotic and mysterious, but Rob's focus
on untangling the obscure, through his work and his commitment to
collaboration within this community (as well as other circles I am sure) has
helped to make this highly technical work more meaningful. I am grateful to
have known Rob and shared in his work.
