ASP – Planetary atmospheres and surfaces

The ASP team is specialized in observation and modeling of planetary atmospheres and surfaces (including dwarf planets and satellites), mainly (but not only) in our Solar system.

It takes part in spatial exploration of the Solar system and also contributes to Earth sciences (through the study of ancient hydrological systems on Earth and comparative planetology) and exobiology (search for life in the Solar system and origin of life on Earth).
