Research Symposium and Dedication Ceremony for the Linde + Robinson Laboratory

The Linde + Robinson Laboratory for Global Environmental Science was officially dedicated with a research symposium and ceremony on January 24.

The research symposium featured talks by John H. Seinfeld, Louis E. Nohl Professor and professor of chemical engineering, and Jess Adkins, professor of geochemistry and global environmental science, both of whom have laboratories in the new Linde + Robinson Laboratory. They spoke about the role of aerosols in climate and atmospheric chemistry, and the exploration of the deep ocean for corals and clues to past climate change.

Speakers at the dedication ceremony included Caltech president Jean-Lou Chameau, GPS division chair Ken Farley, Caltech and Rocky Mountain Institute trustee Sue Woolsey, and trustee and donor Ronald Linde. 

Both events helped mark the historic transformation of one of Caltech's oldest buildings into a prototype laboratory for the future. Linde + Robinson is one of the nation's most energy-efficient science buildings, complete with state-of-the-art laboratories for oceanography, atmospheric science, and environmental chemistry and technology.
