Research Group: Planetary Space Physics

Introduction: 

The Planetary Space Physics group aims at investigating the plasma and energetic particle environment of the planets and their moons in our solar system.

Our team is conducting research in the following fields:
The solar wind and its interactions with Planets together with the Moon, and Mars, which can cause the loss of atmosphere and water and/or space weather effects etc.
