There’s nothing like the smell of salty sea air over summer vacation. But instead of frolicking on the beach, a group of chemists is researching the compounds inside that air. Sea spray aerosols (SSAs) are created with every breaking wave. Kimberly Prather, Ph.D., Timothy Bertram and their teams have discovered in research published in ACS Central Science that SSAs have a huge impact on the planet’s climate.
