METER scientist to be named American Society of Agronomy Fellow

PULLMAN, Wash.—METER Group, Inc. USA (METER) today announced Dr. Colin S. Campbell, environmental biophysicist at METER Group, will be formally presented the prestigious Fellow Award at the American Society of Agronomy (ASA) Awards Ceremony on 11-08-2021 during the scientific society’s annual meeting in Salt Lake City, Utah. The annual awards are presented for outstanding contributions to agronomy through education, national and international service, and research.

Dr. Colin Campbell is a senior research scientist with METER Group and serves as the Vice President of Environment. He is also an adjunct professor with Washington State University where he teaches a class in environmental biophysics. Dr. Campbell has spent the past 20 years developing sensors and instruments to make measurements in the soil-plant-atmosphere continuum. He continues to be active with colleagues around the world conducting experiments to solve problems related to climate change and agriculture and spends considerable time disseminating this research through in-person and online seminars across the globe. One of the highlights of his career was working together with Decagon (METER) colleagues to design and build the Thermal and Electrical Conductivity Probe that measured thermal properties on Mars as a part of NASA’s 2007 Phoenix Mission. His latest work is focused on combining remote sensing and in situ data to provide a more complete picture of water availability to crops.
