    Jerry Ziemke came to NASA Goddard in 1994 as an NRC research fellow specializing in atmospheric composition and dynamics. Since coming to Goddard he has collaborated with many scientists both from Goddard and elsewhere on a large range of topics but primarily relating to atmospheric ozone. Since 1996 his main research has been satellite retrieval and study of tropospheric ozone. Since 2005 he has been Principal Investigator of tropospheric ozone for the US OMI Science Team.
