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.

BrONO2
Diurnal variations of BrONO2 observed by MIPAS-B at midlatitudes and in the Arctic

The main goal of these observations was to check the current understanding of stratospheric bromine chemistry and to estimate the amount of lower-stratospheric inorganic bromine, which has been assessed to be about 21–25 pptv.

AoA
MIPAS-Envisat observations of the stratospheric age of air

shed light on the variation of the stratospheric residual circulation in time scales of years, and help to uncover gaps of current understanding.
