We focus on the development, validation and application of geophysical remote sensing techniques, with special attention to the Earth surface - atmosphere interface. Our research fields are

  1. Satellite-based remote sensing of land and water surface temperatures, and validation thereof at European and African sites.
  2. Remote sensing of low-cloud and fog properties and distribution, including process studies.
  3. Analysis of aerosol patterns and aerosol-cloud interactions based on remote sensing data.


The working group is part of both, the IMK-ASF and the IPF.
