Dr. Paul A. Newman


Dr. Paul A. Newman, Chief Scientist for Earth Sciences at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center and Co-Chair of the Scientific Assessment Panel to the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer since 2017, has been awarded the Cleveland Abbe Award for Distinguished Service to the Atmospheric and Related Sciences, by the American Meteorological Society.

Dr. Newman is principally involved in the analysis of stratospheric meteorological and trace gas observations. His major area of research is stratospheric (upper atmosphere) dynamics and chemistry - an area of particular importance to ozone layer observation and protection, which informs the Scientific Assessment Panel’s drafting of its report on the state of ozone depletion, published every four years. The findings of the Scientific Assessment Panel are instrumental in informing the parties to the Montreal Protocol, and other key decision and policy makers.
