First detection of stratopause jumping more than 25 km in height during Autumn at the North Pole.
We are a group of scientists working at the Instituto de Astrofísica de Andalucía, a research centre of the Spanish Research Centre (Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas, CSIC). Our main research line is the study of the atmospheres of the planets of the Solar System under non-LTE conditions. We focalize our studies in the atmospheres of the Earth, Mars, Venus, Titan, and more recently, the exo-atmospheres. We have several collaborations with other research groups and institutions, working with data coming from international satellite missions.
The project aims at studying the water escape in Mars' atmosphere, both in present and in past conditions where the orbital parameters of Mars were different from those of today.
In this project we investigate several fundamental aspects of the Earth's atmosphere, and reinforce the emerging research line in our Group of exo-planetary atmospheres.
