Congratulations to CU Boulder aerospace professor Kristine Larson for being awarded an honorary doctorate from the Chalmers University of Technology!
Located in Gothenburg, Sweden, Chalmers is known for its engineering education and research programs. Larson is receiving the doctorate in recognition of her groundbreaking research using GPS signals to measure soil moisture, snow depth, vegetation, and sea level. Her work has contributed to improved hydrological studies, weather forecasting, climate models, and sea level rise estimates.
Larson served as a visiting professor at Chalmers in 2010-2011 and maintains an ongoing collaboration with researchers there. She has been an aerospace faculty member at CU Boulder since 1990.
