Air
Air

Our focus is on understanding emissions of air pollutants and greenhouse gases, their transmission and chemical transformation in the atmosphere, and their contribution to local air quality and global change. We integrate data from measurements and model simulations, utilising advanced data science methods to improve our understanding and estimates of past, present and future atmospheric composition change at a range of spatial scales and environments. Our research aims to find better ways to evaluate and utilise models, extract meaningful information from a range of measurements, and situate the best atmospheric science in complex decision-making processes.
