About Ralph J. Cicerone

Ralph J. Cicerone is President of the National Academy of Sciences and Chair of the
National Research Council. His research has focused on atmospheric chemistry, the
radiative forcing of climate change due to trace gases, and the sources of atmospheric
methane, nitrous oxide, and methyl halide gases. His scientific work has involved him
in shaping science and environmental policy nationally and internationally. The Franklin
Institute recognized his fundamental contributions to the understanding of greenhouse
gases and ozone depletion and his public policy leadership in protecting the global
environment with its 1999 Bower Award and Prize for Achievement in Science. In 2001,
he led a National Academy of Sciences study of the current state of climate change,
requested by President Bush.
