Reactive trace substances
Reactive trace substances such as hydrocarbons and nitrogen oxides are emitted in enormous quantities from biogenic and anthropogenic sources into the atmosphere. Measuring their concentration and the exploration of their degradation pathways helps to understand the complex processes how pollutants are removed from the atmosphere.
- Nitrogen oxide chemistry - Measurements and investigations on the influence of nitrogen oxides on photochemistry
- Organic trace gases - Investigating the chemistry of organic trace gases in the atmosphere
- Anthropogenic Emissions - Characterization and avoidance of aerosols from combustion processes; Use of nanoparticles
