About the Speaker
Dr. Ralph Cicerone received his Ph.D. from the University of Illinois. He is an atmospheric scientist whose research in atmospheric chemistry and climate change has involved him in science and environmental policy nationally and internationally. His work with Richard Stolarski in 1973 led to the discovery of the C10X chain mechanisms for depletion of stratospheric ozone. His research was acknowledged on the citation for the 1995 Nobel Prize in chemistry awarded to his colleague F. Sherwood Rowland. Cicerone was also the 1999 laureate for the Bower Award and Prize for Achievement in Science. He was awarded the 2002 Roger Revelle Medal by the American Geophysical Union, which recognized his outstanding research contributions to the understanding of Earth's atmospheric processes, biogeochemical cycles or other key elements of the climate system. He was honored with the Albert Einstein World Award of Science in 2004 by the World Cultural Council for his research of "true benefit to mankind." Cicerone was the chancellor of the University of California, Irvine, before becoming president of the National Academy of Sciences.
