"451st Brookhaven Lecture: 'A Tale of Two Hemispheres: Field Studies of Aerosols and Marine Stratocumulus Clouds'"

Presented by Yin-Nan Lee, Ph.D., Environmental Sciences Dept

Wednesday, May 13, 2009, 4:00 pm — Berkner Hall Auditorium

By reflecting sunlight, clouds may be mitigating the warming effect of greenhouse gases in the Earth's atmosphere. To discuss the roll that aerosol particles play in the cooling mechanism of clouds, Chemist Yin-Nan Lee of the Atmospheric Sciences Division of the Environmental Sciences Department will discuss "A Tale of Two Hemispheres: Field Studies of Aerosols and Marine Stratocumulus Clouds" during the 451st Brookhaven Lecture, beginning 4 p.m. on Wednesday 13 May in Berkner Hall. All are invited to attend.</p> <p>During his lecture, Dr. Lee will discuss his findings from collaborative studies of stratocumulus clouds over the coastal waters of California and Chile.</p> <p>Yin-Nan Lee earned his B.S. in chemistry from Tunghai University, Taiwan, in 1969. He was then awarded his M.S. in chemistry in 1972 and his Ph.D. in physical organic chemistry from Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri. Following a post-doc at Yale University, Dr. Lee came to BNL in 1979.</p> <p>To join the speaker for a lunch off site the day after the lecture, make your reservation with Nancy Warren, or Ext. 7548.</p>
