Arlin Krueger, Senior Scientist Emeritus at Goddard Space Flight Center, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Scientists for dedication, achievements, and leadership in the field of atmospheric sciences.
With a love of physics since his childhood, Dr. Krueger pursued his passion and is renowned as one of the most influential atmospheric scientists of the contemporary age. Holding multiple esteemed positions throughout the course of his career, he has been a senior scientist emeritus at the Goddard Space Flight Center since 2011. Serendipitously, he attended graduate school during the International Geophysical Year, which was the first international collaboration of scientists around the world seeking to better understand the earth’s atmosphere. Since Colorado State University possessed the capability to launch high-altitude balloons in order to gather data on the ozone layer, Dr. Krueger’s advisor encouraged him to pursue this opportunity, resulting in Dr. Krueger earning a Doctor of Philosophy in atmospheric studies from the institution.
Dr. Krueger has made exceptional achievements in his career, including research on the stratospheric ozone, remote sensing from satellites, volcanic eruptions and volcanic aviation hazards. He has also developed the first meteorological rocket-borne ozonesonde and first satellite instrument to map the global distribution of the ozone, a career highlight that resulted in the discovery of Antarctic Ozone Hole. Additionally, he created the first maps of volcanic eruption of sulfur dioxide plumes that can also monitor global volcanic eruption activity. These invaluable discoveries and contributions to the field of atmospheric science contributed to Dr. Krueger earning The Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement Award being featured in multiple editions of Who’s Who in America, Who’s Who in Science and Engineering, Who’s Who in the East and Who’s Who in the World.
