Department/Unit Laboratory of the Upper Atmospheric Physics
Organization Name Obukhov Institute of Atmospheric Physics, RAS
Organization Type
  • Research Centre
Organization Address Pyzhevsky per., 3, Moscow, 119017
  • RF
Russian Federal District
  • Central Federal District
Other spheres of competence Climate change of the middle and upper atmosphere of the Earth
Short description of the organization/department/research team Scientific achievements of Laboratory are connected with researches of a thermal condition, structure and dynamic processes of an average and top atmosphere. They are based on measurements of parameters of the airglow. Results of researches of the long-term changes of temperature and concentration of small gas chemically active components at heights of the upper atmosphere are widely known all over the world.
