The National Science Foundation is providing an influx of funding, $20 million over the next five years, to enhance that understanding through its support of the Center for Aerosol Impacts on Climate and the Environment (CAICE). The award was announced Sept. 9, at a press conference at UC San Diego, where the center was recently established.
The center will leverage the expertise of 23 top scientists from nine universities to determine how aerosol particles released from the ocean influence regional and global climate. Among those scientists is UC Davis civil and environmental engineering professor Chris Cappa.
