Dagmar Cronn at the South Pole

Brian Lamb Endowment

The Brian Lamb Endowment for the Laboratory for Atmospheric Research was established in 2017 by LAR alumna Dagmar Cronn and her husband, Bob, to support graduate scholarships, laboratory equipment and research grant matches. Regents Professor Emeritus Dr. Brian Lamb, a member of the Washington State Academy of Sciences, is a leading researcher in regional grid modeling of photochemical air quality and wind-blown dust, application of atmospheric tracer techniques, biogenic emissions, 3-D turbulence modeling, and greenhouse gas emissions. Dagmar Cronn took her first research job at LAR and in the course of 15 years traveled the world from the Panama Canal to Malaysia, China, and Antarctica. She went on to become dean of the College of Sciences at University of Maine and provost and vice president of Academic Affairs at the University of Oakland, then retired in 2007.
