Modellansatz - Methan
Podcast on modelling of methane with ICON-ART - joint venture of ESM and DE

Jennifer Schröter and Christian Scharun from IMK-ASF got the invitation to talk on the podcast „Modellansatz“ of the Department of Mathematics of KIT.
This podcast deals with recent modelling activities and strategies for the global atmospheric model ICON-ART. Together with Gudrun Thäter they discuss challenges when it comes to modelling the greenhouse gase methane, in particular.
The modelling activities are carried out in the scope of the Helmholtz Advanced Earth System Modelling Capacity (ESM) and Digital Earth (DE) project.

Trilateral science workshop on the upper troposphere and lower stratosphere

A workshop on “Opportunities for scientific collaboration between Argentina, Chile and Germany in the Upper Troposphere and Lower Stratosphere of the Southern Hemisphere”, organized by KIT-IMK-ASF and CONICET, the National Scientific and Technical Research Council of Argentina, was held in Buenos Aires from 30-31 October 2018. More than 30 scientists from Germany, Argentina and Chile took part to discuss and define possible joint projects.

Scientific Ozone Assessment: 2018
A Lesson for Climate Protection: 30 Years of Montreal Ozone Agreement

The Executive Summary (ES) of the “Scientific Assessment of Ozone Depletion: 2018” has been released. In a large international effort scientists, including KIT IMK-ASF researchers, have been assessing the effectiveness of the Montreal Protocol in protecting the ozone layer. The ES describes the current state and projected recovery of the ozone layer, including when the ozone hole will vanish.

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.
