Dr. Mian Chin of the Atmospheric Chemistry and Dynamics Laboratory has been elected to AGU's Class of 2021 Fellows. AGU’s announcement states Fellows "...have made outstanding achievements and contributions by pushing the frontiers of our science forward. They have also embodied AGU’s shared vision of a thriving, sustainable, and equitable future for all powered by discovery, innovation, and action. Equally important is that they conducted themselves with integrity, respect, diversity, and collaboration while creating deep engagement in education and outreach. Since 1962, AGU has elected fewer than 0.1% of members to join this prestigious group of individuals.Thanks to their dedication and sacrifice, AGU Fellows serve as global leaders and experts who have propelled our understanding of geosciences. We are confident that they will remain curious and relentlessly focused on answers as they continue to advance their research, which pushes our boundaries of knowledge to create a healthy planet and beyond.”

Congratulations, Mian, for an honor well-deserved!

NASA Earth Expeditions: Storm (outflow) chasing high up in the stratosphere

08.04.2021
It’s 3 a.m. in Salina, Kansas. The moon is out. Crickets are chirping on this balmy summer night. The light above the door to the hangar softly illuminates the sign that reads “DCOTSS.” Most teammates are just waking up. I unlock the door and walk in to be the first to start this long but exciting day full of new discoveries. It’s yet another start of a typical day of a forecaster for the NASA Dynamics and Chemistry of the Summer Stratosphere (DCOTSS) field campaign.

Overview

The Atmospheric Chemistry and Dynamics Laboratory advances understanding of changes in the Earth’s radiation balance, air quality, and the ozone layer that result from changes in atmospheric composition. Using a combination of satellite data, atmospheric models, and in situ observations, the Laboratory strives to understand:
• the factors that control stratospheric ozone and trace gases that influence ozone,
• the natural processes and human activity that impact the composition of Earth's troposphere, and
• the impact of climate change on future concentrations of stratospheric ozone and tropospheric gases.
