Doug Worsnop Appointed Finnish Distinguished Professor

This afternoon, we had the pleasure of seeing the appointment of Prof. Douglas Worsnop as Distinguished Professor at the University of Helsinki. As part of the ceremony, Doug gave a new lecture entitled, "Aerosols in the Atmosphere: From the Ozone Hole to Climate Change." The lecture covered his career from the role of atmospheric chemistry in acid rain, Mt. Pinatubo eruption, the ozone hole, and global climate change. Looking forward, Doug gave a nod to the meteorology programs at FMI and the university and the role of aerosols in precipitation formation.

Here is Doug receiving his appointment letter (in Finnish) from the Chancellor.
