Colin S. Campbell, PhD
Dr. Campbell has been a research scientist at METER for 20 years following his Ph.D. at Texas A&M University in Soil Physics. He is currently serving as Vice President of Research, Development, Engineering, and Software. He is also adjunct faculty with the Dept. of Crop and Soil Sciences at Washington State University where he co-teaches Environmental Biophysics, a class he took over from his father, Gaylon, 20 years ago. Dr. Campbell’s early research focused on field-scale measurements of CO2 and water vapor flux but has shifted toward moisture and heat flow instrumentation for the soil-plant-atmosphere continuum and irrigation management. He recently received the prestigious Fellow Award for outstanding scientific contributions from the American Society of Agronomy (ASA). His latest work is focused on combining remote sensing and in situ data to provide a more complete picture of water availability to crops.
