For over 35 years, he has worked as a Scientific Programmer and Research Analyst. Using/processing NASA satellite data for sulfur dioxide studies and mean sea level change for the last 10+ years. Worked on solar energy systems (heating and cooling), submarines and cruise missiles, verifying algorithms for instruments and control systems on satellites. Since 1990, Mr Evans has focused on studying trace gases in the atmosphere using ground and satellite data. Measuring water vapor and aerosols (and temperature) with LIDAR; mapping carbon monoxide, methane and sulfur dioxide using NASA satellite data; validating various instruments with intercomparison studies; making these images and data available on the web.
To determine the radiative impact of trace gases in the atmosphere and its impact on aviation and human safety. To engage in some kind of archaeological project.
