Science Thursdays with Brookhaven Lab
with Dr. Olga Mayol-Bracero
Atmospheric aerosol particles, weather and climate and career paths for students
Dr. Mayol-Bracero is an atmospheric scientist, lead of the Aerosol Observing Systems (AOS) group in the Environmental & Climate Sciences Department at the Brookhaven National Laboratory. She joined Brookhaven Lab in August 2021. Prior to her work at BNL she was a Full Professor in the Department of Environmental Science at the University of Puerto Rico – Río Piedras (UPR-RP), the director of the Atmospheric Chemistry and Aerosols Research group at UPR-RP, and the Director of the Cape San Juan Atmospheric Observatory (part of NOAA ESRL's aerosol network, NASA's AERONET, Pandora and MPLNET networks, and a WMO GAW regional station) and of the Pico del Este cloud forest station. Dr. Mayol-Bracero research focus atmospheric aerosols: their interactions with clouds; their chemical, physical and optical characterization; and their impacts on air quality, weather, and climate. She has researched in the characterization of African dust, biomass burning, marine, urban, biogenic aerosols with particular interest in tropical regions. Dr. Mayol-Bracero has participated in a long list of field campaigns that involved ground and airborne deployments including locations as remote as the Maldives, the Amazon Basin, and the Caribbean region.
