Active & Passive Measurement of Atmospheric Trace Gases

Honours projects: This project could develop along a couple of paths. either developing a lidar (active) that measures Raman-scattered light from water, and which will ultimately be deployed at Davis Station in Antarctica as part of a larger campaign to understand the influence of the Southern Ocean in the Earth’s climate system; or quantifying methane leaks, based on a knowledge of the local atmospheric conditions and measured methane concentrations.
