Institute of Meteorology and Climate Research - Atmospheric Trace Gases and Remote Sensing

The Institute of Meteorology and Climate Research (IMK) - Atmospheric Trace Gases and Remote Sensing (ASF) investigates dynamic, microphysical and chemical processes in the Earth’s atmosphere, with the goal to understand, quantify and predict its natural variability and long-term changes.

Accurate measurements of atmospheric trace gases from various observational platforms (ground-based stations, air craft, balloons, satellites) provide the data that are required for the modelling of atmospheric processes.

Particular focus of the activities of IMK-ASF is to investigate the complex links and feedbacks between climate change, dynamics and transport, and atmospheric chemistry.

Professor Johannes Orphal erhält deutsch-französische Auszeichnung

Die Deutsche Physikalische Gesellschaft (DPG) und die Société Française de Physique (SFP) zeichnen den Klimaforscher für seine Beiträge zur Vermessung atmosphärischer Spurengase aus.

Für besonders wertvolle wissenschaftliche Leistungen in der Physik verleihen die DPG und die SFP jährlich gemeinsam den Gentner-Kastler-Preis. Zum Preisträger des Jahres 2017 wurde Johannes Orphal benannt „für seine herausragenden Beiträge zur Vermessung atmosphärischer Spurengase mit Hilfe hochauflösender Spektroskopie und für sein anhaltendes Engagement in der Europäischen und insbesondere der deutsch-französischen Zusammenarbeit auf dem Gebiet der Umweltphysik“. Die Preisverleihung findet anlässlich des Jahreskongresses der SFP im Sommer 2017 in Frankreich statt.

NH3
First detection of ammonia in the upper troposphere

Ammonia (NH3) is important because of its influence on aerosol and cloud formation and its increasing anthropogenic emissions. By analysis of infrared limb emission spectra measured by the MIPAS instrument, NH3 has been detected in the upper troposphere for the first time. We have found enhanced values of NH3 within the Asian summer Monsoon upper troposphere where it might contribute to the composition of the Asian Tropopause Aerosol Layer.

IMK-ASF present at Environmental Week

IMK-ASF Scientists have developed a mobile device for trace gas measurements, which can be used to determine local emission of trace gases. The small portable fourier spectrometer has so far been tested in various field campaigns, measuring emission from big cities such as Berlin, Paris or Tokio, the ocean, fracking or volcanoes. The spectrometer, developed in cooperation with Bruker Optik GmbH, was presented during the “week of the Environment” at Schloss Belvue, Berlin.

POLSTRACC campaign: indication of strong ozone depletion over the Arctic

So far, the Arctic stratosphere has been unusually cold this winter setting the stage for strong ozone depletion over the coming few weeks. One important role are vertically expanded stratospheric clouds that have reached unusually low into the lower stratosphere and covered a broad area over the Arctic region. First signs of activation of chlorine and redistribution of reactive nitrogen and have been observed.

Forschungsflugzeug HALO
Durch den Monsun: Flugzeugmission zu Auswirkungen auf Luftqualität und Klimawandel

Die Selbstreinigungskraft der Atmosphäre steht im Fokus der 30-tägigen Halo Kampagne OMO (kurz für Oxidation Mechanism Observations, „Beobachtung von Mechanismen der Oxidation“), die am 21. Juli von Zypern aus gestartet ist. Zunächst stehen Analysen über der arabischen Halbinsel und dem arabischen Meer auf dem Programm. Dann wechseln Flugzeug, Crew und Team auf die Malediven, um von dort aus die Atmosphäre über dem indischen Ozean und dem Golf von Bengalen zu analysieren. Anschließend geht es nochmals zwei Wochen nach Zypern.
