Climate change involves more than just CO2. Tune in as Kimberly Prather from UC San Diego explains her research on how atmospheric aerosols play a role in affecting the composition of our atmosphere as well as regional and global climate. This broadcast is being brought to you as a part of the 2015 Chemists Celebrate Earth Day. 

What You Will Learn

  • How different particle compositions influence cloud formation 
  • The particular combinations of chemical species that enhance reactivity and cloud forming potential
  • How chemistry at the interface of a particle influence its reactivity
