Minutes of the September 26, 2005 Meeting
Smoky Mountain AMS Chapter


Everyone met at Barley's Taproom in the Old City of Knoxville. After dinner, our guest speaker, Dr. Stewart Hager (Atmospheric and Environmental Research, Inc.), spoke about "Solar Sourced Atmospheric Spectra". Stewart Hager has developed a number of solar tracking systems at the University of Tennessee for remote sensing of atmospheric spectra, first with a 5-m Littrow spectrometer and later with a fourier transform spectrometer. Since completing his Ph.D. at U.T., Stewart has continued to develop optical systems for atmospheric observing and has pursued spectra research in observing for trace gases. Dr. Hager recently accepted a position with Atmospheric and Environment Research (AER), Inc. in Lexington, Massachusetts, where he will continue his pursuit of atmospheric science research.
