Distinguished Professor of Scripps Institute of Oceanography
Professor in Chemistry and Biochemistry at UC San Diego
Distinguished Professor of Scripps Institute of Oceanography, and in Chemistry and Biochemistry at UC San Diego, Dr. Kim Prather shares research and expertise on how human elements contribute to climate change. Dr. Prather is an expert on aerosols, or fine, airborne particulate. Aerosols can contribute negatively to climate change, but may also have the ability to cool the planet and regulate the warming effects of greenhouse gases. Dr. Prather also discusses the effect of aerosols on cloud makeup, precipitation, sea spray, and extreme weather events.
