LEVERKUSEN, GERMANY: Dr Markku Kulmala, Professor, University of Helsinki received the Bayer Climate Award 2012 for his pioneering work in the field of aerosol research. The award comes with prize money of €50,000. Aerosols, tiny solid or liquid particles in the atmosphere, at certain circumstances lower the temperature of the Earth and thus diminish climate change. The atmospheric formation of those tiny particles is crucial to climate. The presentation will be made during the annual conference of the Leopoldina- German Academy of Sciences in Berlin on 22 September 2012.

“Receiving the Bayer Climate Award is a big honour for me. I very much appreciate the commitment Bayer is making. The company not only invests a great deal in its own research and development, it also supports external research through cooperation agreements and through its foundation. We need this attitude from industry to ensure that sufficient attention is paid to the climate sciences beyond academia,” said Kulmala.
