Solar System

The Solar System research groups at MSSL study a wide-range of physical processes, from the surface of the Sun to the interaction between the planets in the interplanetary medium and variations in Earth's climate.
Climate Extremes

Climate Extremes

Our main foci are innovative research and award-winning products to benefit the prediction and monitoring of worldwide weather and climate extremes.

Planetary Science

Planetary Science

Our science themes are planetary magnetospheres, moon interactions, surfaces and comets studying planetary systems across the Solar System and beyond.

Solar Physics

Solar Physics

Working on a number of different solar physics hardware projects, mostly relating to fabricating instruments that work at ultra-violet and X-ray wavelengths.
 
Space Plasma Physics

Space Plasma Physics

Internationally recognised research group studying the physical interaction between the Earth and the Sun and the fundamental physics of space plasmas

Imaging

Imaging

Developing enabling imaging technologies and corresponding datasets to allow new scientific understanding with applications centred on space and climate physics.
