The Atmospheric Chemistry Research Group (ACRG) carries out research here at Bristol and worldwide in collaboration with other atmospheric chemistry research locations.
We aim to increase our understanding of the impacts that mankind's industrial needs and activities have on the Earth's environmental system.
In particular we strive to contribute towards increased global understanding of the problems causing stratospheric ozone loss, global climate change and surface pollutant increases.
The ACRG is a member of the Bristol Biogeochemistry Research Centre (BBRC).

The ACRG runs two of the world’s nine global background stations under the AGAGE (Atmospheric Global Gases Experiment) programme.
The group runs modelling simulations using the Met Office's Global 3-D Lagrangian model STOCHEM.
Collaboration with other institutions allows the group to carry out research in challenging environments and situations.
