Focusing on our Electrical Atmosphere

Prof. Colin Price's research team is mainly focused on Atmospheric Electricity, with an emphasis on global lightning activity, and the connections between lightning activity and the Earth's climate.  However, there are many other topics of interest related to our electrical atmosphere, including dust storms, meteors, solar storms or even earthquakes.  All are link to the field of atmospheric electricity.

In addition, we also study other topics in atmospheric physics, from air pollution, climate change, weather forecasting, natural hazards such as forest fires, hurricanes and flash floods, and recently we started investigating the link between biological systems and atmospheric electricity.
