Brian A. Tinsley is Professor Emeritus of Physics. He has been actively involved in observational and theoretical research on upper atmosphere processes (Aeronomy) for more than 45 years, and has served on many national and international organizations in this field. An overview of his research consists of two major themes

  • Observational and theoretical work on effects of global atmospheric electricity on weather and climate, both from external (solar wind) and internal (e.g., thunderstorm) sources.
  • Models of effects of current flow in the Global Electric Circuit on charging of aersols and cloud droplets, and effects of such charges on cloud microphysics.
