Jones Image Our research uses newly available satellite measurements of atmospheric trace gases together with global three-dimensional modelling of tropospheric chemistry and transport to develop a better understanding of how pollution influences the dynamical and chemical state of the lower atmosphere. The recent satellite observations are, for the first time, providing a global view of the atmospheric distribution of a broad range of environmentally important trace gases. We are using these data to better characterize the pathways for long-range transport of pollution, to quantify the impact of this pollution on the atmospheric environment, and to obtain an improved understanding of the year-to-year variability of these transport pathways and their dependence on the mean state of the climate system.
