About the Author

Thomas A. Cahill, Ph.D., is a professor of physics and atmospheric sciences 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 adapting physical techniques to applied problems, especially air pollution.
Past director of the Institute of Ecology at UC Davis, Cahill began work on global climate problems in 1980, specializing in the Arctic and global impacts of the Kuwaiti oil fires of 1991.
In 1994, he founded the UC Davis DELTA Group, which was instrumental in the massive International Global Atmospheric Program ACE-Asia (Asian Pacific Regional Aerosol Characterization Experiment) that focused on Asian atmospheric pollution in 2001.
In September 2001, Cahill volunteered his expertise to the problem of aerosols from the smoldering debris piles of the World Trade Center collapse. He was one of the first scientists to warn that workers at the site were at risk of serious health threats from the toxic metals in the air they were breathing.
In 2003, the DELTA Group began investigating aerosol impacts on the Greenland Summit for the National Science Foundation.
