Biography

Dr. Jack Fishman, the organizer of the Saint Louis Climate Summit, is a Professor in the Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences and Director of the Center for Environmental Sciences. Prior to coming to SLU, he worked at the NASA Langley Research Center for 31 years, where his research focused on the area of tropospheric chemistry and pioneered the use of satellite observations to provide a unique and eye-opening perspective of the extent of global air pollution. In 1992, he led a multi-national NASA-led aircraft field campaign, TRACE-A (Transport and Atmospheric Chemistry near the Equator-Atlantic) that confirmed and provided an explanation for his satellite findings of extensive pollution from biomass burning in southern Africa and South America, which circumnavigated the southern hemisphere. He received NASA’s Exceptional Scientific Achievement Medal, the highest award that can be given to a NASA scientist, and is a Fellow of the American Meteorological Society.
