Speaker - Dr Tony Marsh (GAS member)

Sent in by John Axtell.

Tony Marsh - Speaker Tony Marsh

Tony is now retired after some 40 years as a research chemist. About three quarters of that time was spent working on tropospheric pollution chemistry including cloud chemistry. He spent some time catching clouds on mountain tops and with aircraft all over Europe. This inevitably gave rise to a signature tune from Mick Jagger and company of 'Get off of my cloud'. It also lead to family comments on dismal UK holidays of "Why does dad have to bring his work on holiday?".

He joined GAS in 1996 and has been learning to live with clear skies ever since.
