Antarctic Ozone Depletion
ANTHONY FUCALORO
TUESDAY, APRIL 6, 1993 12:15 p.m.

The effects of pollution on the Earth's atmosphere became
painfully clear when the ozone hole was discovered over the
Antarctic. However, the potential for unilateral protection of the
biosphere was exemplified by the Montreal Protocol which
resulted in the reduction of the use of ozone depleting chemicals.
Currently, professor Anthony Fucaloro is working with the Jet
Propulsion Laboratory to investigate and explain Antarctic ozone
depletion.

Dr. Fucaloro, a native of Brooklyn, New York, received his
bachelor's degree from the Polytechnic Institute of Brooklyn,
majoring in chemistry and minoring in mathematics. He then
received his doctorate in inorganic chemistry from the
University of Arizona. After completing two postdoctoral
fellowships, as a teaching associate and as a research associate, he
came to the joint science department at the Claremont Colleges
in 1974. From 1980 until the present, Dr. Fucaloro has served as
the scientific adviser to Congressman David Dreier. In 1989 he
was selected to be the George C.S. Benson Professor of Public
Affairs, and in 1992 he became the dean of facuity at CMC.

Dr. Fucaloro's specialization in chemistry is molecular
spectroscopy luminescence and electron impact, subjects about
which he has published more than two dozen articles in scientific
journals since 1971. In addition to these, Dr. Fucaloro also
authored a math text entitled Selected Topics in Mathematics for
Introductory Science Students
(1978).

Lunch is served at 11:45 a.m. Professor Fucaloro speaks at
