Head shot of Stuart Evans, University at Buffalo weather, climate and atmospheric science expert.

Stuart M. Evans is an expert in atmospheric science.

He can speak to the media about weather, climate and atmospheric science. He can also discuss climate change, including observed and predicted changes in the Earth’s climate, and causes and effects of global warming.

Evans’ research focuses on dust — not household dust, but tiny particles of ground-up minerals or clay that reflect heat or light in the atmosphere. He models how dust can affect climate, including precipitation and drought, in different parts of the world and on Earth as a whole. He has studied some of the dustiest places on the planet, including the Sahara and the Sahel in Africa.

Evans can also answer general questions about various weather and climate phenomena, ranging from monsoons and precipitation in the tropics to lake effect snow and the polar vortex.
