Scientific activity

     The Laboratory performs investigations on dynamics, energetics and radiation of the middle and upper atmospheres of Earth and other planets.
These investigations may be devided into four groups (for details go to Research in the laboratory) :
     1. Acoustic-gravity and inertio-gravity waves (GW).
     2. Radiative transfer (RT) in infrared rovibrational molecular bands.
     3. Laboratory measurements (LM) of the rate constants of aeronomic processes.
     4. Global-scale circulation (GC), energetics and physics of the middlle and upper atmosphere.
The abbreviations of these groups of investigations (given in brackets) are also shown in the list below behind the persons who are involved in these investigations.
