Didier Tanré had primary responsibility for remote sensing of tropospheric aerosol over the ocean from the MODIS/NASA instrument. He is a member of the CALIPSO/NASA/CNES (Cloud-Aerosol Lidar and Infrared Pathfinder Satellite Observation) science team and is also Principal Investigator (PI) of the PARASOL/CNES (Polarization and Anisotropy of Reflectances for Atmospheric Science coupled with Observations from a Lidar) mission. He was member of several international committees (IGAP/IGBP, IGAC/DARF, IRC/IAMAS) and editor or guest-editor of Remote Sensing of Environment (1996-1998), Journal of Geophysical Research (1997, 2005, 2008) and ACP/AMT (2012) special issues.
He has also management experience as the chairman of several CNRS/INSU, CNES or AllEnvi research programs (PNTS, CSOA/INSU, TAOB/Atmosphere, ORAURE) and as the former director of LOA (2002-2007).
His research experience covers both theory and applications of radiative transfer modeling through realistic atmospheres, with a focus on the aerosol effects on climate and air quality. He did contribute to the development of remote sensing of atmospheric properties from satellite as well as from ground-based observations like AERONET.
