TROPOS

Leibniz Institute for Tropospheric Research

Leipzig

 

TROPOS was founded for the investigation of physical and chemical processes in the polluted troposphere.Meanwhile, a well-defined and globally unique research profile of TROPOS emerged, with a focus on aerosols, i.e. small airborne particles, and clouds. Despite their minute absolute amount, aerosols and clouds are essential parts of the atmosphere because they control the budgets of energy, water and trace substances of the Earth System. Consequently TROPOS conducts field studies in several polluted regions parallel to the development of analytical methods for aerosol and cloud research.
