The Planetary Climate Dynamics Research Group carries out research on all aspects of planetary atmospheres and planetary interiors that govern the evolution of planetary climate over time. In addition to processes such as atmospheric dynamics, radiative transfer and atmospheric chemistry, this group deals with the exchange of volatile substances between planetary interiors, atmospheres and crust which govern the long-term evolution of planetary atmospheres. There is a great synergy between study of Earth climate, study of the climates of Solar System bodies, and climates of the exoplanets. The Planetary Climate Dynamics group engages physics common to the full spectrum of such objects, including study of the Early Earth, Earth paleoclimate and anthropogenic climate change as well as such exotic and uninhabitable objects such as lava planets.
