About Us

Our group is part of the Department of Meteorology of the University of Reading and is headed by Professor Keith P Shine FRS .

The Radiation Group focuses on the interaction of solar and infrared radiation with the Earthʼs atmosphere. It performs fundamental research on the way water vapour absorbs radiation, collaborating with experimental spectroscopists, and applied research on the impact of human activity on the radiation budget, including aviationʼs role in climate change.

This site is under development. Recent publications from Shine’s group can be found here: Dept of Meteorology – University of Reading (rdg.ac.uk)
