HALO beim Auftanken zum ersten wissenschaftliche Flug von Oberpfaffenhofen
Monsoon Affects Greenhouse Gases
Jülich/Shannon, 18 September 2017 – Only a few days ago, the Asian monsoon, which is particularly strong this year, had catastrophic consequences in India. Its destructive effects, however, reach far further than the Indian subcontinent, in part due to the transport of greenhouse gases. Over the next five weeks, a team of atmospheric researchers will investigate this transport as part of the measuring campaign WISE. Twelve measurement flights will be conducted with the high-altitude research aircraft HALO. It is hoped that the measurements will permit insights into transport and mixing processes in the atmosphere.

Focus

Research

IEK-7 studies chemical, microphysical and dynamic processes in the atmosphere and the role they play in climate change. The institute focuses on the tropopause region (5 to 15 km), because this is where changes in greenhouse gases, aerosols and clouds have a particularly strong effect on the radiative forcing of the atmosphere. more: Research …

Methods and Data

In this section we present methodical pillars of IEK-7 research as well as data sets. more: Methods and Data …

Results

The results of our research are regularly published in the scientific literature. We also make key contributions to international assessments carried out by institutions such as WMO, IPCC and SPARC, which form the basis of decisions taken by policy makers in the field of atmospheric research and climate research. You can find information on past and present IEK-7 publications here: Results …
