Chemistry in Cambridge is the leading UK department (2008 RAE score 3.2) and consistently ranks in the top 5 globally and provides a diverse and stimulating environment for physical science research. The Atmospheric Chemistry group contributes directly to the Cambridge DTP with research strengths which encompass theory and modelling, field and laboratory studies on a range of scales, as well as instrument development in collaboration with industry. The group has implemented atmospheric chemical schemes into the Unified Model jointly with the Met Office and has developed a range of novel instruments for both process-oriented and long term field and laboratory experiments.

Wide collaborations include strong links with DAMTP, which led to the co-founding of, first the Centre for Atmospheric Science and, more recently, the Cambridge Centre for Climate Science (CCfCS). Atmospheric Chemistry also collaborates extensively with other research groups in Cambridge, especially BAS, Plant Science and Geography.
