Becoming Aware of Climate Change in Antarctica

Dan Lubin, PhD

Antarctic Radiation Experiment scientists collected and analyzed data covering the atmospheric energy balance, cloud microphysics, precipitation, and aerosol chemistry. They also deployed the most advanced and complete set of equipment for atmospheric and climate science ever sent to Antarctica. This work is considered the most comprehensive meteorological field campaign ever undertaken. This lecture will describe the scope of this project and provide a current update.

Instructor: Dan Lubin is Research Physicist and Senior Lecturer at Scripps Institution of Oceanography. He has participated regularly in research cruises and remote polar field deployments with equipment for atmospheric spectroscopy and radiometry in the ultraviolet through middle-infrared. He also has ongoing climate research programs using satellite remote sensing. Lubin earned his BA in Physics at Northwestern University and his MS and PhD in Geophysical Sciences at the University of Chicago. He also studied at the US Naval War College.
