Research Group "Planetary Atmospheres"
Welcome to the homepage of the Research Group "Planetary Atmospheres" at the Max Planck Institute for Solar System Research
- Characterization of atmospheres (composition, structure, dynamics, chemistry, circulation, evolution) of Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Titan, Callisto, Europa, Ganymede, Io) using spectroscopic methods in the sub-mm to infrared-regime from groundbased, aircraft-based, spacecraft-based measurements.
- Global modelling of circulation patterns and radiation transport of planets in our solar system and beyond
- Meteorologic characterization of Venus clouds and thier tracking from spacecraft
- Observation and modelling of water- and carbondioxide-cycles in the Martian atmosphere as well as of duststorms.
