The biosphere-atmosphere interactions and atmospheric chemistry group at Lancaster is headed by Professor Nick Hewitt. The main focus of our research is the occurrence and behaviour of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) of biogenic origin in the atmosphere. As well as isoprene (C5H8) and the monoterpene (C10), we are interested in other hydrocarbons and oxygenated VOCs. Our work involves fieldwork, lab work and modelling experiments.

We are also interested in ozone in the troposphere and stratosphere, the formation of particles in the atmosphere, and modelling of the carbon cycle.
