Centre for Atmospheric Science

Sun breaking through clouds

There's a wide array of research being undertaken in the CAS.

The Atmospheric Chemistry group from the Department of Chemistry has a very active research program into all aspects of atmospheric chemistry. There are modelling studies of stratospheric and tropospheric chemistry, using 1D, 2D and 3D models. The group also builds its own instruments for observations of chemical constituents in the atmosphere. There is also research being carried out into the kinetics of reactions important for atmospheric chemistry.

In the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics, scientists are engaged in studying fundamental dynamical processes; for example mixing processes in atmosphere and the development of new gravity wave parametrizations for atmospheric models.

In the Department of Geography, research is being carried out into small scale processes such as mixing within plumes and application to volcanic eruptions.
