Prof. Mark Zondlo, a Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering from Princeton University, New Jersey gave a talk to students at Bridgewater-Raritan High School. Prof. Zondlo is affiliated with the Center for Mid-Infrared Technologies for Health and the Environment (MIRTHE), and the Princeton Institute for the Science and Technology of Materials (PRISM).

“From Pole to Pole in a Flying Laboratory: A Scientist’s Journey to Understand Climate Change” by Dr. Mark Zondlo, Assistant Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Princeton University.

Exciting opporunity to listen to an expert discuss his view on climate change, air quality sensors, and instrumentation developed in laboratories as part of international field experiments. Dr. Zondlo will combine his climate research and background of civil engineering to talk about his field work on greenhouse gases, cloud formation, the instruments he uses.


Prof. Zondlo captivates the BRHS students with his talk about global warming.



Prof. Zondlo demonstrates how releasing canister of liquid nitrogen onto the ground creates little metal balls.
