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.

William B. Moore
Dr. William B. Moore is a Planetary Scientist, presently Associate Professor in the Atmospheric and Planetary Science Department at Hampton University and the Hampton University Professor in Residence at the National Institute of Aerospace. He is interested in the physical processes that link the interior evolution of planetary bodies with their surfaces, atmospheres and dynamics, […]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.
Ryan M. McCabe
I am currently a second-year Ph.D. student studying planetary science at Hampton University. I earned my B.S. in physics from Gettysburg College in 2015 with minors is mathematics and music. My current research interests focus on using cloud-tracking techniques and ground-based observations to gather information about the dynamics of Venus’s atmosphere. In planetary atmospheres, wind speeds can […]Read More
