Honorary Fellow, CSIRO

Dr Steele is an atmospheric scientist whose research is directed at measuring the long-term changes in trace gas composition of the Earth’s atmosphere, and using these measurements to better understand the causes of the changes. The primary focus has been on measuring all important, long-lived greenhouse gases, and the trace gases which deplete stratospheric ozone.

A key element of his research has been the development, introduction, and use of state-of-the-art analytical instrumentation. Most recently, his work has helped to demonstrate and promote the concept of atmospheric verification of trace gas emissions.
