Ross Edwards


Associate Professor Ross Edwards is a researcher with Curtin University Physics and Astronomy investigating the present and glacial time-scale deposition history of smoke and other aerosols from the global atmosphere. These particles alter the properties of the atmosphere influencing climate, atmospheric chemistry, and the productivity of the biosphere. His expertise ranges from the ultra-trace chemical and isotopic analysis of polar ice and snow, and terrestrial and marine waters to conducting field campaigns in the Earth’s most extreme environments. As an inventor, he has pioneered new analytical methods and created equipment that has allowed the continuous analysis of ice cores at the parts per quadrillion level and the ultra-trace analysis of black carbon in water.
