Professor Martyn Chipperfield wins Royal Society Wolfson Merit Award

The Merit Awards recognise respected scientists of outstanding research achievement and potential.

Prof Chipperfield’s group develops and uses numerical models, coupled with satellite, balloon, aircraft and ground-based observations, to improve our understanding of atmospheric chemistry and its interactions.

For two decades Martyn has been at the forefront of global ozone depletion research, making some of the landmark model simulations of the polar ozone hole.  His award is entitled Sources and Impacts of Short-Lived Atmospheric Halogens.
