Atmospheres of the terrestial planets

Our major objective is to improve our

knowledge of the thermal structure (temperature fields), composition (species abundances) and energy balance of the atmospheres of the terrestrial planets, namely, Earth, Mars, Venus and Titan. For that end we mainly use global (space) measurements of those quantities measured by instruments on board satellites spanning through periods from around a year to a decade, and simulations by global circulations models (GCM's).

Another major goal is to strength and support the Spanish participation in international space projects principally lead by the ESA and NASA agencies.

As a further objective, we put also much efforts on training in research of graduate and post-graduate students.
