Synchrotron radiation is a good mimic of solar radiation and therefore has been widely used to study photo-induced physics and chemistry in the terrestrial atmosphere. In this paper we review how synchrotron radiation is being used as a tool for investigating atmospheric physics and chemistry with particular emphasis on studies related to ozone depletion, global warming and ionospheric phenomena. The paper concludes with a discussion of the new possibilities that the next generation of synchrotron-based light sources will provide.
