OREGON CITY - Clackamas Community College will be hosting a STEM Talk on Tuesday, Oct. 11, 5-6 p.m. The talk will be "Particle Formation in the Atmosphere: An Arctic Case Study" by Dr. Deanna Myers.

The largest uncertainty in the current understanding of climate change is due to particles in the atmosphere. Atmospheric particles, under the right conditions, can form clouds and thereby impact climate. The processes that lead to particle formation dictates their ability to form clouds. Researchers have studied particle formation in many locations around the globe to improve the understanding of what is important for this process in the atmosphere.

Participants at this STEM Talk will learn about a case study of atmospheric particle formation from the Alaskan Arctic and what impacts particle formation might have on climate in this region.

This event is free and open to the public. It will be held in Pauling Center C, room 165. Clackamas Community College is located at 19600 Molalla Ave., Oregon City. Participants may also join the STEM Talk via Zoom at Clackamas Community College on Zoom.

The STEM Talk is sponsored by Build EXITO and the CCC STEM Educational Focus Area. For questions, contact Tory Blackwell at For more information about STEM at CCC, visit CCC's STEM webpage.
