The focus of the Atmosphere Modelling Group is to increase our process-based understanding of hydrological, physical, meteorological and chemical mechanisms in the lower part of the troposphere. This includes the emissions of biogenic volatile organic compounds (BVOC) from different ecosystems with a special focus on boreal region, their vertical and horizontal distribution and their chemical reaction paths. Further the group investigates the formation and growth of secondary organic aerosols (SOA) inside the planetary boundary layer (PBL) and tries to improve our understanding of in- and below cloud formation and activation mechanisms, which is still far away from complete. We aim at finding process parameterizations that can be subsequently applied in climate predictions and reduce significant uncertainties therein.
