Unravelling the Role of Chemistry in Atmospheres

Alex Archibald, University of Cambridge

Friday, Oct 25, 2019
12:00 pm to 1:00 pm | Pierce Hall, 100F

To what extent is chemistry in the gas phase important for life? In this lecture I will discuss how we go about answering this question and the tools we have developed in Cambridge (UK) to try and shed light on this important topic. I will focus on two major tools and themes; the work we have led in the development of gas phase chemistry in the UK Chemistry and Aerosols model including our vision for new developments of chemical mechanisms to understand important climate interactions and the work we have collaborated on in simulating the photo-chemistry of exoplanetary atmospheric systems – systems wildly different to that of our contemporary atmosphere.
