Program goals 

Understanding the interactions between the earth, its atmosphere, and human activities

Brief description of program 

Professor Hess’ work advances our understanding of how the chemistry and composition of the atmosphere may change over the 21st Century and help to prepare adaptive responses or mitigation strategies. These changes in atmospheric chemistry not only drive climate change but also directly threaten human health, agricultural productivity, and natural ecosystems. As a teacher he helps students understand the complex and exciting science involved in understanding the interactions between the earth, its atmosphere, and human activities.
