Atmosphere

Prof. Dr. B. Jähne

We study the exchange of mass, heat and momentum between ocean and atmosphere using imaging techniques. We operate the world's largest active annular wind-wave tank, the Aeolotron.

Dr. Denis Pöhler / Prof. Dr. Ulrich Platt

We develop precise measuring instruments for gases like NO₂ & NO based on spectroscopy (DOAS) and perform studies on air quality and transport emissions (formerly EXIST–AQMTec).

Apl.-Prof. Dr. K. Pfeilsticker

We study the physics and chemistry of the lower and middle atmosphere using optical spectroscopy, chemical transport and radiative transfer models, and PV-monitored irradiance.

Prof. Dr. A. Butz

Our group explores the composition of the Earth's atmosphere and its interaction with the terrestrial and oceanic surface using spectroscopic remote sensing techniques.

Dr. Martina Schmidt

Through the study of atmospheric concentrations and isotopic composition of the above trace gases the group searches for a quantification of sources and sinks and atmospheric trans

Dr. Samuel Hammer

ICOS-CRL, the central radiocarbon laboratory of the European research infrastructure ICOS, analyses atmo. ¹⁴CO₂ to break it down into its biogenic and fossil components.

Prof. Dr. T. Wagner

Our group deals with the analysis and interpretation of satellite spectra to derive global trace gas maps, emission sources, transport processes, and chemical transformations.

Prof. Dr. U. Platt

Die Forschungsarbeiten dieser Arbeitsgruppe konzentrieren sich auf die Untersuchung der Rolle und der Konzentrationsverteilung Freier Radikale in der Troposphäre.
