University of Southampton

Welcome to the Space Environment Physics Group


We study the interaction between the Sun and the magnetospheres and upper atmospheres of several of the planets in the Solar System (mainly Earth, Saturn and Jupiter). Our group belongs to a highly active community in the United Kingdom, in which several universities and research laboratories are involved. We also collaborate closely with a number of groups overseas, especially in Scandinavia and the United States.

We are part of the Astronomy Group in the School of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Southampton.

Please browse our website, and feel free to contact a group member if you have any questions.


We have several funded PhD opportunities for October 2018 entry. Application deadlines are in January. Please see our opportunities page for more information.
