ESF in Bermuda

ESF Chemistry Professor David Kieber conducts climate research on the Bermuda Islands

image"My colleagues ... and I proposed a three-year field and modeling study to better understand the chemical changes that occur in sea-salt aerosols as they are exposed to sunlight. This project was comprised of two phases. The first phase was conducted at the Bermuda Institute for Ocean Sciences over the past two years. At this facility, we were able to test a large, sea salt aerosol generator ... to determine the physical and chemical properties of the sea-salt aerosols that were freshly generated from bursting bubbles...

"The second phase of this study is being conducted now at the Bermuda Institute for Ocean Science’s Tudor Hill Atmospheric Observatory..."
