What do we study?Atmospheric science is the study of the physics, chemistry, and dynamics of gases, clouds, and aerosols that surround the planetary bodies of the solar system. At HU, research is extended beyond the usual bounds of the atmosphere to include the interplanetary medium and processes of "space weather" affecting Earth and other planets.How do I get involved?
The HU Department of Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences (APS) offers a course of study leading to Ph.D. and M.S. degrees. Students from a variety of academic disciplines are welcome, and the curriculum maintains a flexibility to match individual interest.

John W. C. McNabb
Dr. John McNabb is a physicist, presently a Research Assistant Professor in the Department of Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences at Hampton University. His career has been spent searching for understanding of things from the very small to the very large. He is currently working on the AIM satellite mission as the Project Data Center Manager […]Read More
Partners + CAS
CAS is dedicated to increasing the participation of minorities in the fields of Atmospheric, Space, and Planetary sciences. The research center, CAS, and its academic department, APS, maintains strong partnerships with many national, international, private, and higher education institutions.
Christopher J. Spells
Christopher Spells is a Ph.D candidate studying the effects Saharan regions aerosols — specifically Saharan dust and sub-Saharan smoke — have on the atmospheric radiation balance over the tropical Atlantic Ocean. His research involves using satellite observations from the Infrared Atmospheric Sounding Interferometer (IASI) in conjunction with ground-based and in-situ profile measurements collected during a […]Read More
