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.


Dissertation award for Julia Fuchs

Scientist honoured for best PhD thesis of the last two years.


Composition and origin of the Asian Tropopause Aerosol Layer (ATAL) uncovered

A comprehensive study lead by IMK-ASF and published in Nature Geoscience reveals solid ammonium nitrate particles forming due to ammonia emissions at ground as a major component of the ATAL at 12-18 km altitude.

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.
