F. Sherwood Rowland was awarded the 1995 Nobel Prize in chemistry for his atmospheric studies, which led to an understanding of how the ozone layer forms and decomposes. His research was integral to the movement to ban chlorofluorocarbons from aerosol cans. He continues his work in his laboratory at UCI.
