Atmospheric Variability and Trends: Projects

The activities of Research Area "Atmospheric Variability and Trends" are embedded in R&D activitites of the German Helmholtz Society (basic funding) as well as in related funded projects.


The R&D activities are part of the "Atmosphere and Climate Program"  of the research area "Earth and Environment"  of the German Helmholtz Society. Contributions are made to "Program-Topic 3: Trace Substances in the Troposphere" .

Current funded projects are:
