The Holy Father has appointed Professor Susan Solomon, Professor of Atmospheric Chemistry in the Faculty of Science – School of Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge (USA), as a regular member of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, Holy. Report to the press office.

Professor Suzan Suleiman was born on January 19, 1956 in Chicago. In her hometown, she began her studies in chemistry at the Illinois Institute of Technology, then completed her PhD in atmospheric chemistry from the University of California, Berkeley. He currently teaches atmospheric chemistry in the MIT School of Science in Cambridge, Massachusetts, Department of Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences, and heads the Chemistry and Climate Operations Group at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

Thanks to observations in Antarctica in 1986 and 1987, she was one of the leading researchers explaining the phenomenon of the ozone hole and noted that polar stratospheric clouds (PSCs) play a major role in shifting and depleting stratospheric ozone. This hypothesis has been confirmed in laboratory tests and direct measurements.

In 2000, she was awarded the Carl-Gustaf Rossbie Medal from the American Meteorological Society for his fundamental contribution to understanding atmospheric chemistry and to explaining the mystery of the formation of the ozone hole. He is a member of the American Academy of Sciences (USA). In 1994, the glacier was named after her – Solomon Glacier (78 ° 23′S, 162 ° 30′E) and Solomon Saddle Pass (78 ° 23′S, 162 ° 39′E). She wrote the book Coldest March (Yale University Press, 2001). She received the National Medal of Science, the highest scientific award in the United States of America. Solomon’s research was instrumental in the adoption of the Montreal Protocol to protect the stratospheric ozone layer.
