Because the chemistry of aerosols and the environment is vitally important, so is engagement with scientists and the public. We welcome any inquiries or comments.


CAICE is a Center for Chemical Innovation focused on the fundamental chemistry behind the impact of aerosol particles on our climate. We are committed to both cutting edge research and education. Click to learn more about aerosols and how they influence our climate and environment. Contact a team member or department to learn more or get involved.
