The Institute for Meteorology and Climate Research (IMK)
consists of four divisions, two of which are jointly operated by the University of Karlsruhe and the Karlsruhe Research Centre. They work on atmospheric processes of the troposphere (IMK-TRO) as well as of atmospheric trace gases and remote sensing (IMK-ASF). A third division, the Atmospheric Aerosol Research (IMK-AAF) is jointly operated with the Institut für Umweltphysik of the University of Heidelberg. Since January 2002 the Institute of the research of the atmospheric environment, former part of the Fraunhofer Gesellschaft, has been a division of the IMK as

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

The Institute for 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.
