The Overarching goal of the Atmospheric Physics research section is to improve the understanding of polar atmospheric processes in the global context. We combine long term observations from ground stations and innovative measurements from airborne platforms and research vessels with the development of process scale models that feed into improving the representation of polar processes in regional to global scale climate models.
