Hourly - Research Professor

Professional Interests

Dr. Lowenthal’s research interests included interactions among natural and anthropogenic aerosols, cloud microphysical properties, snow formation, and aerosol light extinction and visibility. A long-term study supported by EPRI investigated the physical and hygroscopic properties of organic carbon aerosols in U.S. national parks as they relate to the IMPROVE equation, a tool used to establish compliance under the U.S. EPA Regional Haze rule. Dr. Lowenthal is principle investigator on a National Science Foundation study to elucidate snow growth processes in mixed-phase wintertime orographic clouds using stable water isotopes to follow gas-liquid-ice phase transitions and a co-investigator with Gannet Hallar on a Department of Energy project to interpret observations during StormVEx (Storm Peak Lab Cloud Property Validation Experiment).
