Interested in what's happening at Atmósferas Planetarias Terrestres research group and other related groups. News and Events are posted here regularly to keep out you updated about what is going on.
The Group of Terrestrial Planetary Atmospheres (www.gapt.es) of the Instituto de Astrofísica de Andalucía (IAA/CSIC) seeks to appoint a motivated post-doctoral researcher to work in its ongoing projects on the atmosphere of Mars.
CAIRT, an Earth Explorer 11 candidate mission in which GAPT is involved, has been selected by the European Space Agency as one of the two mission concepts going into Phase A
Analysis of the observations by the CARMENES instrument has provided new insights into the aerosol presence in distant gas giants.

The temperature and composition derived from the data obtained during the first year of operation of the NOMAD instrument have been retrieved and analyzed by the IAA NOMAD team in a series of papers published in JGR: Planets.

We have detected water vapour in the hot Jupiter HD 209458 b in the near-IR.
Our significant H2O signal at 0.96–1.06 μm in HD 209458 b represents the first detection of H2O from this band individually.

Our results suggest that the middle atmosphere circulation on Titan extends well above the 500 km level, up to 750–800 km or even higher if we assume that the CH4 concentration above 800 km is mainly controlled by the circulation (Dinelli, López-Puertas et al., 2019).
