Atmospheres


The atmosphere is a key part of the climate system, and atmospheric processes directly affect us through weather and air pollution. Atmospheric research in EAPS is directed at a wide set of basic questions involving numerous disciplines. Areas studied include: the chemistry of the atmosphere and its interplay with the radiation balance of the Earth; the role of the atmosphere in climate change; prediction, data assimilation, and synoptic meteorology; tropical and extratropical cyclones; interactions between the stratosphere and the troposphere; and atmospheres of other planets in or beyond our solar system.
