The 2014 Noble Lectures will be given by Dr. J. Michael Wallace Department of Atmospheric Sciences, University of Washington
2008Noble Lectures Poster

These lectures will be accessible to a broad audience of people interested in the topic. They will present the underlying physics issues that have had to be addressed in order to successfully make quantitative measurements of atmospheric composition, particularly when absorption and emission signatures are very small components of the spectra. A highlight will be the Special Physics Colloquium dealing with the Ultraviolet and visible measurements of the Earth's atmosphere: Toward continuous pollution monitoring from space.
