>Friends, Colleagues, DAACsters and ESIPers,
>I am very pleased to announce that Dr. Rahul Ramachandran is the new DAAC
>Manager at the  Global Hydrology Research Center located in the Earth
>Science Office at Marshall Space Flight Center.    Rahul is well known
> the DAACs, the ESIP Federation, and the Earth Science community.
>Rahul¹s background in Earth science, computer science and informatics
>will serve him well.  Rahul received a  B.E.
> degree in Mechanical Engineering from JMI University, New Delhi,  an
>M.S. in Meteorology from South Dakota School of Mines and Technology, an
>M.S. in Atmospheric Science, another M.S. in Computer Science, and
>finally a Ph.D.  in Atmospheric Science from the
> University of Alabama Huntsville.
>Beyond his impressive academic credentials, he was awarded the
>Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE) in
>2009.  His research is focused on Earth Science Informatics connecting the
> application of computational methods and information technology to the
>acquisition, storage, processing, interchange, analysis and visualization
