Dr. Timothy E. Carone

Director, Global Climate Monitoring Systems, Northrop Grumman Aerospace Systems

Dr. Timothy E. Carone is Director, Global Climate Monitoring Systems (GCMS), for Northrop Grumman Aerospace Systems (NGAS). Carone leads the GCMS practice in NGAS and is responsible for integrating these efforts with other climate efforts across the corporation. Prior to joining Northrop Grumman, Carone spent 25 years in the scientific and commercial sectors serving as an enterprise architect for companies in financial services, manufacturing, pharmaceuticals and retail. In this capacity, he helped develop and execute business strategies for Global 1000 companies, gaining extensive expertise in the design and implementation of high-performance business architectures, the creation and execution of technology strategy projects and the management of complex implementation projects. Prior to his work in the commercial sector, Carone was an astrophysicist, receiving his Ph.D. in physics from the University of Arizona. He spent five years as a senior scientist at the Space Sciences Laboratory at the University of California, Berkeley.

Remote Sensing and Carbon Sequestration

Carbon Capture and Storage will be accomplished through natural processes using modified agricultural and forestry management practices as well as man-made processes through the geologic storage of CO2. These natural and man-made CCS methods will require measurement and verification that demonstrate (1) carbon is being sequestered at the levels reported that are additional and permanent, (2) that carbon is not being transferred to secondary or connected processes that have higher losses than the primary methods being accounted for, and that (3) over time the amount sequestered is maintained and not subject to excessive and potentially deadly leakage. Northrop Grumman Aerospace Systems can provide measurement and verification for both natural and man-made CCS methods using its leading edge remote sensing techniques.
