March 24, 2010 — James Anderson, a distinguished atmospheric chemist from Harvard University, will give the first Marie Payne Graham Memorial Lectures at the University of Virginia on April 1 and 2.
The first public lecture, "Strategic Choices for Global Energy: Constraints from Feedbacks in the Climate Structure," will be given April 1 at 8 p.m. in Gilmer Hall, room 190.
Anderson will also speak on "Chemical Physics of the Climate Structure: Feedbacks, Irreversibility and the Role of Developments in Lasers, Optics and Robotics," on April 2 at 4 p.m. in the Chemistry Building, room 304.
The lectures are made possible through an endowment created by Robert L. Graham, a retired professor from Minnesota State University, Mankato, in memory of his wife of 46 years, the former Marie Payne of Staunton. Graham met his wife while pursuing his Ph.D. in physical chemistry at U.Va.
