Biography

Dr. John Sweeney is Emeritus Professor of Geography at the National University of Ireland, where he was employed from 1978 until his retirement in 2013. A First Class Honours B.Sc. graduate of the University of Glasgow, he also completed his Ph.D. there in 1980 on aspects of the Meteorology and Climatology of Air Pollution in the Glasgow Basin. He has taught and examined in excess of 10,000 geography students over the past four decades, primarily in courses related to climatology but also in biogeography, geomorphology and environmental resource management and led students on field courses in France, Germany, Scotland, and Ireland. He has also served as external examiner on a number of Ph.D. theses both in Ireland and overseas. He has taught and researched at a number of universities in North America and Africa and has also been involved in course design and curriculum development matters at second and third levels.
Over the past 40 years he has published approximately 120 scientific papers and edited/co-authored 4 texts on various aspects of urban climatology and climate change in Ireland. These have focused predominantly on meteorological influences on air pollution transport and dispersal in Ireland, and on spatial aspects of climate change. He has led a number of national research programme into the impacts of climate change in Ireland and into the production of climate scenarios for Ireland for mid and end century. Professor Sweeney has also served as: President of the Irish Meteorological Society (1996-1999), Secretary and Editor of the Geographical Society of Ireland (1984-1996), Treasurer of the Irish Quaternary Association (1982-1985) and Secretary of the Irish Committee for the Geosphere-Biosphere Programme (1993-2001). He also served as the first Chairman of the Royal Irish Academy's Irish Committee on Climate Change.
In 1999 he was appointed as one of two Irish national delegates to the newly-formed EU Co-Operation in Science and Technology (COST) Technical Committee on the Environment. This has entailed assessment and encouragement of proposals for research networks in the environmental area throughout Europe. He has also served as an Expert Evaluator on over 100 occasions for the EU Commission both for research proposals and prizes for distinction in research in the environmental field. He also participated in the Irish delegation at the negotiations leading up to the formulation of the EU Fifth Framework Programme. Active involvement at local level is also apparent with several community development-related responsibilities being undertaken. Most recently he has served as the President of An Taisce; the National Trust for Ireland.
His work has been acknowledged by awards for journalism by the European Meteorological Society; he was the International Kildare Person of the Year in 2008; he received the Geographical Society of Ireland's award for service to society and community in 2014. His contribution to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's 4th Assessment Report was also acknowledged as part of the Nobel Peace Prize jointly awarded to that organisation in 2007.
