Thomas A. Cahill

  • Professor, In Memoriam
  • Physics
Dr. Cahill spent five decades characterizing aerosols via nuclear analysis, ensconced in circa 270 peer reviewed publications. He designed and ran the IMPROVE network from 1977-1997, and was a director of Crocker Nuclear Laboratory. He mentored hundreds of students as a faculty member at UC Davis and published several books spanning from new techniques of ion accelerators to science fiction adventures. He passed away in May of 2019.

Christopher Cappa

  • Assistant Professor
  • Civil and Environmental Engineering
Explores how the properties of atmospheric aerosols (e.g. their interaction with light, hygroscopicity, atmospheric lifetime) affect and are affected by physical and chemical transformations that occur within the particle, on the surface of the particle or in the surrounding gas-phase.
