Tom Hill, Ph. D.
Research Scientist
Education: Ph. D. in Environmental Microbiology, University of East London-United Kingdom, 1995
Research: The aims of my work in this great team are to reveal the identities, and understand the characteristics and atmospheric relevance, of ice nucleating particles. My focus is on the most active of these, the biological ice nuclei, and their production and release by agricultural and natural ecotypes, and by the oceans, especially the wild ones.
