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.

Nicholas G. Heavens
I study the role of aerosols and clouds in the weather and in past and present climates of planetary bodies in our Solar System (particularly Mars). To do so, I synthesize atmospheric modeling, a suite of remote sensing techniques, and analyses of rock strata in outcrop. Please consult my curriculum vitae for the most current information. I currently […]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.
Melvin A. Amos
I am currently a Master of Science candidate in the field of planetary science within the Department of Atmospheric and Planetary Science at Hampton University. I attended Virginia Tech whence I graduated in 2009 with two Bachelor of Science degrees: physics (with astronomy minor) and mathematics. Here at Hampton University, my adviser is William B.
