Dr. John Anderson

Research Associate Professor

Dr. Anderson earned his Ph.D. in Atmospheric Science from North Carolina State University in May 1998. Dr. Anderson joined the Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences staff as a post-doctoral research fellow in May of 1998. Teaching Experience: Hampton University – Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences, 2000-Present and North Carolina State University – Atmospheric Physics and Thermodynamics, 1993-1997. Dr. Anderson is presently analyzing aerosol and trace-gas records measured by the SAGE II, Solar Backscatter in the Ultra-Violet (SBUV), and the Halogen Occultation Experiment (HALOE) instruments. He is a Co-Investigator on the SAGE II science team and the NOAA Center for Remote Sensing and Technology (CREST) and is a member of the American Geophysical Union and the American Meteorological Society

Research Interests: Dr. Anderson's research interests include analyzing data from satellite-based instruments and developing reference global aerosol and trace-gas climatologies and time series analysis with a special emphasis on trend detection and climate change.
