Atmospheric dynamics and air quality (ADAQ)

Overview

Meteorological processes and atmospheric composition.

Atmospheric dynamics and air quality is a sub-area of the Centre for Atmospheric and Climate Physics (CACP). It is concerned with meteorological processes and their interaction with atmospheric composition including air quality and the resulting impacts over local to global scales. The research has been ongoing since 1995 and specialises in the improvement and application of multiscale meteorological and chemistry-transport models, use of satellite data for modelling, study of the impacts of air quality, characterisation and source apportionment of air pollutants (including particles) and air quality trends in megacities. We contribute to the activities of the NERC funded National Centre for Atmospheric Science (NCAS) and collaborate with a large number of international research organisations. The research is funded by a range of agencies, such as, research councils, European Commission, Government and industry. The research within ADAQ interacts closely with CACP's Particle Instrumentation and Diagnostic and Light Scattering and Radiative Processes sub-areas, and we recommend you visit their pages too. Please contact Ranjeet S Sokhi for further information on ADAQ research or any of the theme coordinators.
