The Atmospheric Chemistry and Climate of the Anthropocene Research Group investigates key processes and drivers in the atmosphere and climate system and predicts present-day and future changes in climate, atmospheric composition and air quality. Our group has expertise in ground-based measurements and remote sensing, using models and observations to understand processes controlling past and future changes in climate and climatic extremes, constraining projections of the future with observations of the past, modelling atmospheric chemistry, and impacts on human health.

Interaction between the atmosphere and the land surface

We study the physics and chemistry of the atmosphere and the interactions between the atmosphere and the land surface using a range of models and ground-based, airborne and satellite measurements. We also study health impacts related to climate and air quality. Our research work informs high-level reports such as those from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and the UN Task Force on Hemispheric Transport of Air Pollution.
