From Molecular to Global Scales

Let’s try this for starters: This is such an amazing project!!! It is environmental molecular science at its best, it bridges the length scale of a molecular bond, which is …

When the Ocean Breathes

Ever enjoyed walking along the shoreline and listening to the roar of breaking surf? Underwater, the sound of breaking waves is the sound of air breaking into bubbles, each one …

So there are particles in the air…

Particles are a ubiquitous feature of the atmosphere. These particles impact climate in two main ways: they scatter and absorb sunlight and they influence the properties of clouds. By scattering …

A Theoretical Perspective

While our colleagues are busy with the intensive campaign measurements at the wave flume at SIO, we spread the excitement for our CAICE research at the University of Utah. Before …

A Great First Day

After several weeks and countless hours of preparation, the CAICE intensive study finally started.  Clocks synchronized, sampling lines in place, instruments ready and we went for it.  All day we …

Worth a Thousand Words

One of the most rewarding aspects of a campaign like this, besides the obvious quest of scientific inquiry, is the great teaching and learning opportunities between all the people working …

Are all those particles the same?

In freshman chemistry we learn that ideal gases have a distribution of molecular speeds at a single system temperature, where some gases travel faster than others and have more kinetic …

…and we’re off!

The east side of the Hydraulics Lab is now bustling with the sound of vacuum pumps and impassioned, forward-looking scientific discussion.  Our ocean-atmosphere chamber has been outfitted with perhaps the …
