2. F.Sherwood Rowland - Autobiography
rowland shared the 1995 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for work in atmospheric chemistry.
Our home was filled with books, and all of us were avid readers. My reading at that time ran toward naval history, which was complemented with realistic scale-models and simulated naval battles using an elaborate mathematical system for rating each warship and the effects of combat on them. During my sophomore year in high school, my math teacher, who also coached tennis and basketball, encouraged me to take up tennis - which led me onto the varsity tennis team for my junior and senior years, and into a full decade of intense athletic competition. As a senior, I played on the varsity basketball team.
After graduation from high school in 1943, almost all of my male classmates immediately entered the military services. However, because I was still well under the compulsory draft age of 18, I enrolled at Ohio Wesleyan and attended the university year-round for the next two years. During these war years, only 30 or 40 civilian males were on campus, plus about 200 naval officer trainees and 1,000 women. With so few men available, I played on the University basketball and baseball teams, and wrote much of the sports page for the University newspaper.
My accelerated academic schedule made me eligible for my final year of university in June, 1945, as I approached my 18th birthday. However, with the fighting in the Pacific and the continuing military draft, I enlisted in a Navy program to train radar operators. The Pacific war ended while I was still in basic training near Chicago, and I served the next year in several midwestern Naval Separation Centers, as the 10,000,000 Americans who had preceded me into the military were returned to civilian life. A major amount of this Navy time was devoted to competitive athletics for the Navy base teams, and I emerged after 14 months as a non commissioned officer with a rating of Specialist (Athletics) 3rd class. My first real opportunity to see the rest of the United States came when I was transferred to San Pedro, California for discharge from the Navy.

Rowland, F. Sherwood,
in full FRANK SHERWOOD ROWLAND (b. June 28, 1927, Delaware, Ohio, U.S.), American chemist who shared the 1995 Nobel Prize for Chemistry with chemists Mario Molina and Paul Crutzen for research on the depletion of the Earth's ozone layer. Working with Molina, Rowland discovered that man-made chlorofluorocarbon (CFC) propellants accelerate the decomposition of the ozonosphere, which protects the Earth from ultraviolet radiation. Their findings eventually brought about international changes in the chemical industry. Rowland was educated in his hometown at Ohio Wesleyan University (B.A., 1948) and at the University of Chicago (M.S., 1951; Ph.D., 1952). He held academic posts at Princeton University (1952-56) and at the University of Kansas (1956-64) before becoming a professor of chemistry at the University of California, Irvine, in 1964. At Irvine in the early 1970s he began working with Molina. Rowland was elected to the National Academy of Sciences in 1978. Rowland and Molina theorized that CFC gases combine with solar radiation and decompose in the stratosphere, releasing atoms of chlorine and chlorine monoxide that are individually able to destroy large numbers of ozone molecules. Their research, first published in

Sherwood Rowland ... 100 More Winners Story Gallery Nobel Prize 100th Anniversary Issue Times Headlines By TERENCE MONMANEY, Times Staff Writer Sherwood Rowland wasn't always a rabble-rouser. That role came later, after a discovery that challenged basic ideas about the fate of man-made chemicals in the atmosphere. A distinguished chemist specializing in radioactive processes at UC Irvine, he was exploring new problems in the early 1970s when he chanced upon another scientist's observation. Aerosol propellantsthe gases that put the spray in hair spraydidn't vanish into thin air, the scientist had noted, but accumulated in the stratosphere six to 30 miles above Earth. The propellants, known as chlorofluorocarbons, or CFCs, were believed to be harmless, inert. But Rowland, now 74, wondered whether that was true, and he and a chemist in his group at UC Irvine, Mario Molina, pursued the question. What they quickly found would rock the government, threaten a huge industry and transform global environmental policy. It also earned them and Paul Crutzen of the Netherlandsupon whose earlier research they builta Nobel Prize in chemistry in 1995.

Research Professor at the Department of Chemistry, Bren Chair , Earth System Science, University of California , Irvine, United States. Research interests :
His research group is currently studying the composition of the earth's atmosphere in (a)remote locations throughout the Pacific region from Alaska to New Zealand:(b)highly polluted cities throughout the world; and (c) areas with special conditions, such as burning forests and/or agricultural wastes, or the marine boundary layer in oceanic locations with high biological emissions. Whole air samples are collected on land, ships, and aircraft and are returned to our laboratory for analysis.
Gas chromatography utilizing flame ionization detection, electron capture detection, and mass spectrometry is our main analytical tool. A three gaschromatograph analytical system is used to quantify about 150 halocarbons, nonmethane hydrocarbons, and alkyl nitrates ranging in mole fraction from about 2 parts per billion to 20 parts per quadrillion.
In an attempt to determine "background" concentrations of selected trace gases, since 1978 they have been collecting air samples at surface locatins every three months in Pacific regions from northern Alaska to southern New Zealand. Results from this "background" study recently led to our discovery that methyl bromide, a gas that significantly affects stratospheric ozone concentrations, has a tropospheric seasonal cycle. This finding provides an important constraint on hemispheric and seasonal methyl bromide sources and removal processes.

EFFECTS OF NUCLEAR WEAPONS ON THE ATMOSPHERE F. SHERWOOD ROWLAND Interviewed by John M. Whiteley Quest for Peace Video Series
If you were suddenly to kill 750 million people in north temperature region and have another 350 million that were severely injured, disrupted most of your civilization, then you clearly are going to have major, major problems even if you didn't add to that severe climatic disturbance. It seems to me that the consequence of an all out nuclear exchange may not be the end of life, of human life on earth, but it would be the end of the present civilization. F. Sherwood Rowland F. Sherwood Rowland is a professor of chemistry at the University of California, Irvine and recipient of the 1995 Nobel Prize in Chemistry. He has received worldwide recognition for alerting nations to the danger posed by chlorofluorocarbons when released into the atmosphere through aerosol propellants, refrigerants, and solvents. Honors conferred upon Dr. Rowland include election to membership in the National Academy of Sciences, fellowship in the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and the American Geophysical Union, and the Tyler Prize for Environmental Achievement, the world prize in ecology and energy. Whiteley: Your consideration of nuclear winter begins with several aspects of our current situation. The first is that the atmosphere has no national boundaries. What do you mean?
