PHD Position: ULTRACOOL CHEMISTRY IN NOCTILUCENT CLOUDS

co-supervised by Charles Cockell and Basile Curchod

The highest clouds on Earth, noctilucent clouds, are named for their night glow. They form at extreme mesospheric conditions, and are sensitive to smallest environmental changes. Noctilucent clouds are the only place on Earth where we find non-hexagonal ice forms, and hold fascinating and yet poorly understood chemistry. In this project we bring together modelling and experiments to unravel the molecular mechanisms responsible for the evolution and growth of these mesmerising clouds.
