Atmospheric Sciences

Our in depth strength in specific research disciplines is the foundation for “connected research” that integrates the natural and social sciences across disciplines.

Our research in atmospheric measurements, including remote sensing and the modelling of atmospheric processes from the local to global scale, is conducted in an Earth system or a “sustainable atmosphere” framework. Currently we focus on the emissions of volatile organic compounds produced by organisms, understanding their role in climate/land/atmosphere feedbacks, particularly those involved in surface energy balance and tropospheric chemistry. Our research delivers benefits by contributing to improved pollution control and possible options for mitigating climate change.
