subject of global change including books, papers, and presentations. His publications include Global Energy: Assessing the Future, with John Reilly (Oxford University Press) and A Primer on Greenhouse Gases (Lewis Publishing and scientific book of the year at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory). He has served as a Lead Author for all three major assessments of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and numerous interim assessment reports. He has frequently testified before Congress and briefed the Executive Branch of the United States Government, and has prepared and conducted numerous briefings and lectures to a wide range of audiences. His received his Ph.D. and M.A. in economics from Duke University and his B.A. in economics from Kalamazoo College.


Loretta J. Mickley is a research associate in the Division of Engineering and Applied Sciences at Harvard University. She primarily investigates the complex relationship between climate change and tropospheric ozone and aerosols. Dr. Mickley’s work addresses an array of chemistry-climate questions such as: how human activity has changed the composition of the atmosphere, the effect of tropospheric ozone on climate change, causes of pollution episodes, the influence of future climate change on air quality. Dr. Mickley received her master’s degree in chemistry from the University of Illinois at Chicago and her Ph.D. in geophysical sciences from the University of Chicago.


Phillip Rasch is a Senior Scientist in the NCAR Climate and Global Dynamics Division’s (CGD) Climate Modeling Section. His main focus has been on understanding the connections between clouds, chemistry and climate of the Earth system. Work in this broad area has required basic contributions in numerical methods for atmospheric models, as well as contributions in the representation of cloud processes, and processes that control the transport, production, and loss of trace constituents in the atmosphere. He is a member of the development team for the NCAR Community Atmosphere Model (CAM), and the Community Climate System Modeling (CCSM) project, and has contributed in the above mentioned areas to that model. He was the principal architect of MATCH (Model for Atmospheric Transport and Chemistry) at transport model used by researchers worldwide. Rasch is the co-Chair of the Atmospheric Model Working Group within the CCSM project, facilitating research within a group of scientists numbering in the hundreds around the country. He oversees the day to day activitives of the group’s model development and helps in coordinating the planning of future versions. He is a chair of the International Global Atmospheric Chemistry project (IGAC), and an organizer of the IGBP/WCRP activity called Atmospheric Chemistry and Climate (AC&C). He has served in various editorial positions for international journals, served on advisory panels for NSF, DOE, and NASA, and is a member of numerous science teams on NASA projects. He has been a contributing author to NASA,World Meteorological Organization, and International Panel on Climate Change assessment documents. He has served and/or chaired organizing committees for NATO Advanced Study Institutes and World Climate Research Programme workshops. He was a member of the NSF Science and Technology Center for Clouds, Chemistry and Climate (C4), and was chair of the modeling activity within that center.
