Ross Salawitch's research focuses on quantification of the effect of human activity on atmospheric composition, with a focus on climate change, tropospheric chemistry, air quality, the carbon cycle, and stratospheric ozone depletion and recovery. These efforts are motivated by the need to quantify how atmospheric composition is being altered by emissions of greenhouse gases and pollutants that drive global warming and degrade the environment.

Salawitch also wrote a book “Paris Climate Agreement: Beacon of Hope” on the agreement ratified in 2016 and he continues to monitor its highs and lows.
