The CaPPA laboratory of excellence – Physics and Chemistry of the Atmospheric Environment – draws on the multidisciplinary expertise of 7 research teams (LOA, PC2A, PhLAM, SAGE, LPCA, ICARE, LASIR) to promote metrological innovation in the field of the atmospheric environment. On the one hand, it focuses on the “aerosol” system and its precursors to gain a better understanding of their role in climate forcing and the hydrological cycle. On the other hand, it studies the development of air quality at global, regional and local scales, with specific studies on radionuclides.
