Institute for Climate and Atmospheric Science (ICAS)

Martyn Chipperfield's Research Group

L-R: Martyn, Wuhu, Erin, Sarah, Sandip, Tom, Nigel and Chris.

About Us

Our research group studies the chemistry of Earth's troposphere-stratosphere-mesosphere and its interaction with atmospheric transport and climate. We use a range of numerical models, from simple box models to large 3-D climate models running on supercomputers. We work closely with observation and laboratory groups worldwide.

Sports and Social

We play many sports and organise social activities throughout the year. Photos from previous events can be found here.
