Our group combines world-class measurement science, in both laboratory and field, with theory and modelling, to bring insight into fundamental atmospheric processes and develop evidence and insight to deliver cleaner air, lower emissions and reduced environmental impacts.

Our work spans from understanding pollution inside and outside the home to global tropospheric and stratospheric processes.

The Atmospheric Chemistry group studies gas and aerosol phase processes in the atmosphere using experimental and modelling approaches. Our distinctive strengths are in urban air pollution, global ozone processes, halogen chemistry, atmospheric emissions, molecular composition of aerosols, atmospheric mechanisms, and measurement technologies.

Research centre

We are housed in the Wolfson Atmospheric Chemistry Laboratories - a collaborative venture between the University and the National Centre for Atmospheric Sciences. 

The Laboratories enable experimental and theoretical studies relating to the science of indoor, local and global air pollution, stratospheric ozone depletion and climate change.
