Senior Research Scientist, Space Science Institute. We will be talking about the Mars rovers and much more. Note that there will be no toll free line for this program as I am doing the show from a Los Angeles hotel.
Dr. William Farrand is geoscientist with over 20 years of experience working with multispectral and hyperspectral remote sensing data.



He received a PhD in the Geosciences with a minor in Remote Sensing from the University of Arizona in 1991. Dr. Farrand worked from 1992 to 1995 for Science Applications International Corporation under contract to work on the Hyperspectral Digital Imagery Collection Experiment (HYDICE) program. In the late ‘90s, Dr. Farrand worked on various commercial remote sensing projects including an association with Earth Search Sciences and applications of data from their Probe‐1 hyperspectral sensor. Dr. Farrand was also involved in a 1997 Department of Energy remote sensing mission over the National Nuclear Center of Kazakstan. In the 2000’s, Dr. Farrand has worked on several different NASA‐funded planetary remote sensing projects. Since 2002, he has been a science team member on the Mars Exploration Rover mission and has been a lead scientist on interpreting multispectral data returned from the Pancam instruments on‐board the Spirit and Opportunity rovers. Dr. Farrand has also worked with hyperspectral data returned by the Compact Reconnaissance Imaging Spectrometer for Mars (CRISM) on‐board the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.
