Steve Arnold

Steve’s research focuses on the processing and transport of trace gases and aerosols in the atmosphere, and their interactions with the Earth’s climate system, biopshere and society. This research is key to improving our ability to understand and predict changes in present-day and future climate, and risks to human health and ecosystems. Steve uses numerical models in conjunction with observations from aircraft, satellites and surface sites to probe fundamental chemical and physical processes controlling these interactions.

Steve is also:

Research interests

  • Chemistry of the troposphere
  • Atmospheric transport of trace contituents
  • Short-lived climate pollutants in the Arctic
  • Interactions between atmospheric composition, the biosphere, climate and air quality
