About the Author

Thomas A. Cahill, Ph.D., is a professor of physics at the University of California, Davis. His early work at UCLA, in France, and in Davis, California, was in nuclear physics and astrophysics, but he soon began applying physical techniques to applied problems, especially air pollution. His data in 1973 on the impacts of airborne lead was instrumental in the final establishment of the catalytic converter in California in 1976. He proposed and supported the law to lower sulfur in gasoline in 1977. He spent the following 20 years designing, building, and running the aerosol network to protect visibility at U.S. national parks and monuments � now the national IMPROVE program. In 1994, he founded the UC Davis DELTA Group to work in two areas � aerosols and global climate change � for the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association (NOAA). Additionally his group analyzed aerosols and human health impacts for the California Air Resources Board, American Lung Association, and the Health Effects Task Force for Breathe California of Sacramento Emigrant Trails. Because of this health-related work, a U.S. Department of Energy colleague asked Cahill and his team to evaluate air at the excavation project following the collapse of the World Trade Center towers in the autumn of 2001. Cahill was one of the first to warn that workers at the site were at risk of serious health threats from the toxic metals in the air they were breathing at the site. Cahill�s first book, Annals of the Omega Project � A Trilogy, was published in summer of 2012. Ark: Astroid Impact, published in 2012, is the first in his Ark trilogy series.

Ark: Diaspora, the second book in the Ark Trilogy, is every bit as exciting and innovative as the first book. It's so interesting to see how Thomas Cahill has built a life for what seemed to be a hopeless situation. They perservere, invent and find ways to communicate with other survivors. Of course there are some evil, useless people that challenge the effort made by the enduring men and women of this story. However, that often seems to be the way life's tragedies really are--the survivors and the losers.
