Exploring the response of Earth’s hydrologic cycle to geoengineering
Dr. Philip Rasch serves as the Chief Scientist for Climate Science at the Paciﬁc Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL), a Department of Energy Oﬃce of Science research laboratory. Dr. Rasch is internationally known for his work in general circulation, atmospheric chemistry, and climate modeling. He is particularly interested in the role of aerosols and clouds in the atmosphere, and has worked on the processes that describe these components of the atmosphere, the computational details that are needed to describe them in computer models, and on their impact on climate. He also studies geoengineering, or the intentional manipulation of the atmosphere to counteract global warming.
