It's #MeteorologicalMonday.

Instead of a weather phenomenon I want to make a thread of Black meteorologists/atmospheric scientists to elevate their voices. If you'd like to be included in this thread please don't hesitate to let me know and I'll add a tweet on!

First up, @That_Astro_Chic. Ashley studies planetary formation and the atmospheric chemistry of Titan. She is the first ever astrochemist to graduate with a B.S. from Chicago State University.
