    the issues I am most concerned with are i how does the atmosphere function both chemically and dynamically ii what processes have led to and help to maintain Venus past and current climatic conditions and iii what can the lessons we learn about the evolution of Venus atmosphere and climate tell us about the Earth s atmospheric evolution past present and future My current research focuses on characterizing Venus sulfur oxide cycle via both observation and modeling of the horizontal and vertical distribution Venus sulfur oxide gases see doi 10 1016 j icarus 2015 05 027 http www issibern ch teams venusso2 project html These distributions are balanced by both chemical and dynamic processes occurring in the atmosphere As implied by the name the sulfur oxide cycle maintains the budget of S and O in the atmosphere It is also the chemical cycle responsible for the formation of H 2 SO 4 on Venus thus it is one of the key chemical cycles operating in Venus atmosphere A key motivator of my research is the fact that the H 2 SO 4 cloud formation through time is central to understanding Venus climate change yet Venus observationally inferred H2SO4 production rate has yet to be replicated by any atmospheric composition modeling efforts In addition to working towards improving our understanding of the sulfur oxide cycle as a whole my research is also motivated by a desire to define how that cycle interacts with Venus other chemical cycles such as the carbon oxide cycle responsible for CO 2 formation but linked to O 2 formation the poly sulfur cycle and the coupled chlorine sulfur cycle see doi 10 1016 j pss 2007 01 012 The underlying motivation for all of this research is a desire to improve our understanding of how H 2 SO 4 O 2 and CO 2 have been produced and lost within Venus atmosphere over geologic time so that the mechanisms that drive Venus climate evolution can be more accurately defined and understood Martin Airey University of Oxford Visit Martin s Research page Interview conducted by Lynnae Quick Martin is a graduate student in the Department of Earth Sciences at the University of Oxford where he studies the geology of the terrestrial planets with an emphasis on the effects of volcanism on planetary systems What do you find most intriguing about the planet Venus For me the most intriguing thing about Venus is how the surface and atmosphere have evolved so differently when compared with Earth The two planets similarities in terms of size mass average density inferred composition and proximity to the sun would be suggestive of similar formation and subsequent evolutionary mechanisms However the surface environment of Venus is characterised by a hot dry dense atmosphere and a complete absence of liquid water at the surface in contrast to Earth s wet temperate surface environment with vast oceans and vigorous water cycle Understanding how their evolutionary histories diverged so dramatically since the formation of the solar
