Kerri Pratt is an assistant professor in the Department of Chemistry and Department of Earth & Environmental Sciences at the University of Michigan! This is a belated post, as I started this position in Summer 2013! Please check out our group website! http://prattlab.chem.lsa.umich.edu/
We are in Barrow again for a NSF-funded springtime halogen chemistry study! This is a collaborative study between Purdue University, the University of Michigan, and Penn State. Angela Raso, a Purdue University PhD student co-advised by Prof. Paul Shepson and Prof. Kerri Pratt, is now in Barrow with the chemical ionization mass spectrometer, after having spent 4 months preparing for the study in my lab at the University of Michigan. Three Pratt Lab students will be flying to Barrow this weekend to join Angela and the Penn State folks!

Our research was highlighted by the National Science Foundation: "Sunlit snow triggers atmospheric cleaning, ozone depletion in the Arctic". Right now we're highlighted as the second frame on the NSF main page "Sea-Ice Snow Affects Arctic Air Chemistry"!
Derek Hallquist, at Green River Pictures, with the help of Aaron Woolf, produced a fantastic new video about the Shepson Group's Arctic aircraft studies! Check out: Sea Ice Climate Research with Experimental Plane in Barrow, Alaska!
Thank you Derek!
Thank you Derek!
