Biography:

Standing within a gentoo penguin colony on King George Island, Antarctica, Dr. C. Michael Hogan served a term as Editor in-Chief of the Encyclopedia of Earth which ended in 2012. In addition to authoring a number of papers for the Encyclopedia of Earth, he is a physicist who has published over 1220 peer reviewed articles in other journals and government monographs in the fields of molecular biology, quantum spinwaves, atmospheric physics, biogeochemistry, hydrological modeling, species population dynamics, ecological modeling and environmental impact analysis. He has served as the President and Chief Technical Officer of Earth Metrics Inc. and earlier as Director of the Environmental Systems Laboratory unit of ESL Inc. Earlier professional work includes research scientist at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, Ames Research Center and graduate faculty at the University of Santa Clara and San Jose State University. With emphasis on research in North America, he has conducted ecological research in 31 different countries. Dr. Hogan has been a member of the National Academy of Sciences, Transportation Research Board and a founding Director of the Association of Environmental Professionals. He received a PhD in physics from Stanford University and BS. from Princeton University.
