The nation and the world have made enormous strides in improving air quality in the 20th century. However, new research is arising that challenges the conventional wisdom and throws into question current air quality regulations for the 21st century.

UC Davis professor emeritus Tom Cahill will present examples from as close as your kitchen and as far away as China at a free talk from noon to 1 p.m. Thursday, March 13, in the AGR Hall at the Buehler Alumni & Visitors Center at UCD.

Cahill is a professor emeritus of physics and atmospheric sciences. His work includes studies in California (lead, Mono, Tahoe), national (the IMPROVE air network, the World Trade Center, Hawaii, Alaska) and global (China, Europe and Greenland).

This talk is part of the “Brainfood Talk” series, sponsored by the UCD Emeriti Association and the UCD Retirees’ Association. Bring your own lunch; coffee, tea and cookies will be provided.

Cahill recently was selected by the UCD Emeriti Association to receive the 2014 UC Davis Distinguished Emeritus Award.

“Professor Cahill has had an outstanding professional career in the area of atmospheric aerosols,” a news release said. “He has combined his research on the impact of aerosols with a highly visible and effective public service component, using his knowledge to address local, national and international problems. His focus on the impact of atmospheric particulates has consistently focused on human health effects.”

Cahill has performed significant service locally and internationally since his retirement, the association said.

“He continues to conduct research and contribute greatly to our understanding of the impact of atmospheric contamination, including analyses of particulates created by the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center.”

The UC Davis Distinguished Emeritus/a Award honors outstanding scholarly work or service performed by an emeritus or emerita professor since retirement. Past award recipients include Wayne Thiebaud, professor emeritus of art; Charles E. Hess, professor emeritus of plant science; and Alex McCalla, professor emeritus of agricultural and resource economics; and Eldridge Moores, professor emeritus of geology.

The alumni center is on the south side of the Davis campus, near the Mondavi Center for the Performing Arts. A UC parking permit is required for the South Entry Parking Structure, or day permits may be purchased for $8 at the structure’s entrance.

For more information, contact the UC Davis Retiree Center at 530-752-5182 or retireecenter@ucdavis.edu.
