Challenge Will Drive New Caltech Research in Climate Science

Trustee Ronald Linde (MS ’62, PhD ’64) and his wife, Maxine, have initiated a giving challenge to support key research

Responding to the uncertain state of funding for environmental research and the opportunities afforded by new advances in technology, trustee Ronald Linde (MS '62, PhD '64) and his wife, Maxine, have initiated a giving challenge to help ensure that Caltech can maintain current programs and move forward with important new work in climate science. When complete, the Ronald and Maxine Linde Challenge for Climate Science will generate at least $3 million to scientists and engineers across the Caltech campus who are seeking to better understand Earth's changing climate.
