The stratosphere in global change

IEK-7 Aktivitäten



IEK-7 conducts research on the chemistry, dynamics and microphysics of the stratosphere and the tropopause region, and on the role these atmospheric layers play in the climate system.

For this purpose, aircraft and balloons are used for experiments intended to clarify processes, primarily on a local and regional scale. With the analysis and use of satellite data, these studies are expanded to include global and climatological scales. The evaluation of the measured data is closely interlinked with model calculations.
