Sally McFarlane Receives Alumna Award

Congratulations to Pacific Northwest National Laboratory's Dr. Sally McFarlane, who received the Mary Lyon Award from Mount Holyoke College in South Hadley, Massachusetts. This award is given to " a young alumna who has been out of College fifteen years or less, who demonstrates promise or sustained achievement in her life, profession, or community consistent with the humane values that Mary Lyon exemplified in her life and inspired in others." McFarlane, a research scientist who specializes in climate physics, received a B.S. in physics and mathematics from Mount Holyoke College, then went on to earn her M.S. and Ph.D. in astrophysical, planetary, and atmospheric sciences from the University of Colorado. Her research focuses on understanding how clouds and aerosols affect the Earth's atmosphere and representing those processes in computer models that predict climate change.  She leads several projects for DOE's Atmospheric Radiation Measurement Program and for the NASA Energy and Water Cycle Study.
