Description of scientific projects
Activities in our group includes satellite and in situ data analysis and modeling ranging from radiative transfer models to simple 2D chemical/dynamical models to general circulation models. A major focus is exploring chemical, dynamical and thermal changes in the upper troposphere and lower stratosphere. We also examine how stratospheric changes relate to surface climate change.
