John Plane's Group

Atmospheric and Planetary Chemistry

Prof. John Plane's group is based at the University of Leeds in the School of Chemistry. We show varied research interests with a common aim of understanding the chemistry of planetary atmospheres. Our research span the three branches of atmospheric chemistry: laboratory studies (kinetics and photochemistry), atmospheric measurements (in situ and remote sensing), and modelling. We have led and collaborated in a large number of laboratory, field and modelling UK and international research projects addressing a wide variety of atmospheric chemistry topics ranging from the troposphere to the mesosphere. Information on these topics can be found in the links below.
