Environmental Research Group
Welcome to the Environmental Physics Group Home Page. The environmental physics group is part of the Department of Physics and Astronomy and is a member of Gateway Antarctica and Centre for Atmospheric Research at the University of Canterbury.
The main focus of this group is to examine how the climate has changed in response to man-made changes associated with ozone depletion and greenhouse gases. This is done by gathering new fundamental knowledge on processes in the atmosphere. To achieve this goal requires a combination of observations, from satellites, ground based instruments at field sites in New Zealand and Antarctica and climate modelling
