Dancing Particles: Understanding Chemical Processes in the Atmosphere

For climate forecasts, understanding how particles form––also referred to as aerosol formation––currently represents the greatest challenge. Aerosols impact the climate directly through their interaction with solar radiation and indirectly as cloud condensation nuclei. At present, it is assumed that they have a predominantly cooling effect on climate. At the same time, aerosols pose a health hazard and thus negatively impact air quality.

Flying Labs: Measuring Instruments for Performing Studies at Various Altitudes

In order to obtain the data needed for their research, scientists use various flying platforms with highly sensitive measuring instruments developed in Jülich for gaseous, liquid, and solid air components.

Zeppelin NT 2012

Climate Research with Zeppelin NT

Jülich's climatologists have been using the Zeppelin NT as a measuring platform since 2007. From May 2012, they will be coordinating the biggest scientific mission so far for the Zeppelin as part of the EU PEGASOS project. Three campaigns each lasting several weeks, will take them to the Netherlands, across the Alps to Italy and the Adiatic, and finally in 2013 to Finland.
