Ateneo Physics alumnus Jude Salinas is now a PhD student in Earth Systems
Science at National Central University, Taiwan

After finishing his BS Applied Physics degree at Ateneo de Manila
University in 2012 , Cornelius Csar Jude H. Salinas went on to take his PhD
studies at the Taiwan International Graduate Program-Academia Sinica of the
National Central University, Taiwan.  Last December 2016, his paper
entitled, “Impacts of SABER CO2-based eddy diffusion coefficients in the
lower thermosphere on the ionosphere/thermosphere,” was published at the
Journal of Geophysical Research-Space Physics. SABER stands for Sounding of
the Atmosphere using Broadband Emission Radiometry (SABER) instrument is
one of four instruments on NASA’s Thermosphere-Ionosphere-Mesosphere
Energetics and Dynamics (TIMED) satellite. To scan the atmosphere, SABER
uses a 10-channel broadband limb-scanning infrared radiometer with spectral
range of 1.27 µm to 17 µm. Different gases–O3, CO2, H2O, [O], [H], NO, OH,
O2, and CO2–have different absorption properties at different
electromagnetic wavelengths. This allows the bulk properties of these gases
to be measured, such as kinetic temperature, pressure, geopotential height,
volume mixing, volume emission rates, and cooling and heating rates–all
across different atmospheric heights.
