Centre for Atmospheric Chemistry

Research at the Centre for Atmospheric Chemistry advances understanding of trace gas and aerosol chemistry, atmosphere/biosphere exchange of trace gases, and long term changes in atmospheric composition and chemistry from local to global scales.

CAC_measurements

Trace Gas Measurements:

Determining the amounts, sources and sinks of atmospheric trace gases with solar remote sensing, in situ and flux measurements, including operating two sites in the TCCON and NDACC networks.

CAC_model

Modelling and Analysis:

Using global models and developing advanced analysis methods to interpret measurements, probe datasets, and test theories of atmospheric composition and chemistry.

CAC_fires

Fire Emissions:

Using remote-sensing spectrometric techniques to quantify emissions from vegetation fires to the atmosphere.

CAC_agriculture

Agricultural Emissions:

Developing and applying novel techniques to measure greenhouse gas emissions from agricultural practices and identifying effective strategies to mitigate emissions from the industry.

Radiation - SIPEX

Solar Radiation and Aerosols:

Following changes in particles in the atmosphere to understand their impact, formation, and fate.
