About the talk:

The air we breathe is composed of gases and aerosols. We're familiar with the major gases: individual molecules like nitrogen ("N2") and oxygen ("O2"). But the aerosols are less well known. Atmospheric aerosols are tiny solid particles and liquid droplets suspended in air. They are 10 times finer than our hair and there are many thousands of them in every breath of air. They come from the deserts, as dust, from the oceans, as sea spray, from combustion, as soot and smoke, and various other sources. Join Dr. Matthew Pendergraft from UC San Diego in a conversation about these tiny particles that influence weather, climate, and human health.

About Suds & Science:

Sometimes, the most interesting discussions occur over a beer or a glass of your favorite vino. (Bonus points if you can remember what was said the next morning!) That’s the concept behind Suds & Science, a monthly event that brings scientists face-to-face with the general public in a neighborhood bar. Each session kicks off with a short and enlightening presentation, after which the floor is open for discussion between the audience and the speaker. We cover a wide variety of topics that can range from the science of beer to superhero physics to the genius of genomes. We invite you to come sit back, sip your favorite beverage and participate in the discussion. Suds & Science puts the fun and spirit(s) back into learning.
