Ballroom C+D (Camino Real Hotel)
Joseph S. Francisco , Department of Chemistry and Department of Earth & Atmospheric Sciences, Purdue University, West Lafayette, IN
This presentation provides an overview of research developments in atmospheric chemistry and how the interplay between experiment and theory are providing unprecedented detail of the underpinning chemistry in global climate change.  The lessons learned from chemistry in Earth’s atmosphere provide valuable insight into chemistry of other planets in our universe, such as mars. The connection between Earth and Mars chemistry will be discussed.

This presentation will also provide an overview of issues impacting chemical enterprise, our competitiveness in the global marketplace, and how the American Chemical Society can play a leadership role in moving forward into the future.
