General information
Name of the project:  Research of planetary atmospheres using high resolution spectroscopy, numerical modeling of planetary atmospheres, development of infrared heterodyne spectrometers

Strategy for Scientific and Technological Development Priority Level: е

 
Goals and objectives

Research directions: Research of planetary atmospheres using high resolution spectrometry, numerical modeling of planetary atmospheres, development of infrared heterodyne spectrometers

Project objective: Study of the Earth's climate and other planets and development of theoretical and experimental methods for research of planetary atmospheres.


The practical value of the study

  • A complex study of atmospheres of Venus and Mars on the basis of data from «Venus Express» and «Mars Express» as well as from observations from the ground in the infrared range.
  • Theoretical models of chemistry and dynamics of atmospheres of Mars, Venus and Titan.
  • Development of methods of spectrometer study of atmospheres of the Earth and other planets with high spectral resolution.
  • Creation of heterodyne spectrometers for the infrared range.

Implemented results of research:

  • Obtained knowledge concerning atmospheres of Mars and Venus are a significant step towards understanding of mechanisms of formation of climates of Earth-like planets.
  • Devices and methods developed by the academic staff of the Laboratory can be used for monitoring greenhouse gases of the Earth's climate, for verification of models of forecasting weather and climate as well as for preventing natural and technological disasters.

Education and career development: An international masters program in planetary and environmental studies has been opened.

Collaborations: University of Reims Champagne-Ardenne (France), University of Cologne (Germany), Tohoku University (Japan), Max Planck Institute for Solar System Research (Germany), Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (Switzerland), LATMOS (France): collaborative research
