Susan Solomon

Atmospheric Chemist

Currently, a professor at MIT, Susan is internationally recognized as a leader in atmospheric science. 

She led an expedition to Antarctica to investigate the newly discovered ozone hole over the continent.

Solomon’s research in Antarctica played a key role in proving that ozone loss was caused by man-made chemicals called chlorofluorocarbons.

3 Things We Love About Susan: 

  • She became interested in science at a very young age after watching shows like Jacques Cousteau.
  • Her interest in Atmospheric Science came from her high school science project, measuring the amount of oxygen in various gaseous mixtures.
  • The Solomon Saddle and Solomon Glacier in Antarctica were named after her in honor of her research.
