We are a group of planetary scientists working at the University of the Basque Country in Bilbao (Spain).
Our main research line is the study of the dynamics of the atmospheres of the planets of the Solar System.
Currently we are involved in the analysis of data from the VIRTIS instrument onboard the European space mission Venus Express.
We also serve the planetary sciences community coordinating the IOPW (International Outer Planets Watch)
and the software tool PVOL (Planetary Virtual Observatory & Laboratory) which you can
access from these webpages.
