Fernando Moreno. Portrait of Fernando Moreno, astrophysicist, with six images of weather systems on Jupiter in the background. Moreno works at the Instituto de Astrofisica de Andalucia in Granada, Spain, and specialises in the study of the atmospheres of the giant planets, in particular Jupiter and Saturn. These planets have very thick atmospheres with powerful and long-lasting weather systems. Moreno studies the atmospheric scattering of light, the properties and composition of the huge clouds, and the manner in which the great storm systems are driven. Photographed in 1997.
