Conference attendees from about 30 countries met to present research results and discuss current issues in the fields of topospheric and stratospheric aerosols and nucleation phenomena. Specifically addressed are aerosol and nucleation mechanisms affecting ice formation, cloud droplet formation and growth, aerosol-cloud interactions, and aerosol related global warming and ozone depletion mechanisms as well as acid rain production and pollution of the earth's atmosphere. The nucleation symposium part of this conference addresses all theoretical and experimental aspects of single and multi-component nucleation, ion induced nucleation and heterogeneous nucleation involving foreign particulates. The conference attracts leading scientists in the aerosol and nucleation communities and the Proceedings provides a technical summary of the current status of research.
In 1960 Barbara N. Hale received a Bachelor of Science degree from Syracuse University. In 1967 she obtained a Doctor of Philosophy degree from Purdue University.
From 1968 to 1969 Barbara N. Hale was an assistant professor of physics at the Rochester Institute of Technology. In 1969 she was appointed a professor of physics at the University of Missouri - Rolla (now Missouri University of Science and Technology). In 1973, Hale was one of the first two women to join the Missouri University of Science and Technology (Missouri S&T) physics faculty. She began as an assistant professor, making a major change in her field of study, which had been high-energy particle physics, to join the Graduate Center for Cloud Physics. That center eventually became the Cloud and Aerosol Science Laboratory where she was promoted from an associate professor and senior research investigator to professor and senior investigator. She became an expert in nucleation theory with an emphasis on theories of water and ice cluster formation.
From 1996 to 2000 she was a member of the International Committee on Nucleation and Atmospheric Aerosols and held the international conference chair. She is the author of Nucleation and Atmospheric Aerosols 2000. Hale is a contributor of about thirty articles to scientific journals, including Physical Review, Journal of Chemical Physics, Journal of Atmospheric Sciences, Journal of Statistical Physics, and Chemical Physics Letters. In 2018, after 46 years of teaching and research in the physics department at Missouri S&T, Barbara N. Hale retired.
