The School of GeoSciences has a small aircraft to help examine the lower atmosphere and its interactions with the land surface.
The aeroplane enables us to make measurements of trace gas concentrations up to about 10,000 feet asl and to take images of the Earth's surface.
Our new aircraft is of a type described as a self-launching motorglider and was made by Diamond Aircraft in Austria. Its type is an Eco Dimona MPX and the registration number for the aircraft is G-GEOS
