Biosphere-atmosphere gas exchange & Atmospheric Chemistry

  • How climate change and air-pollution affect and being affected by changing the natural balance between the biosphere and the atmosphere?
  • How can we save water by improving evapotranspiration prediction, using atmospheric and soil modeling, combined with remote sensing?

Main current research topics

  1. The effect of biogenic volatile organic compounds (BVOCs) on local scale ozone removal and regional ozone formation under climate change;
