Working Group Atmospheric Chemistry

The Working Group Atmospheric Chemistry of the GDCh Division of Environmental Chemistry & Ecotoxicology Division is primarily concerned with tropospheric chemistry and the influence of anthropogenic (e.g. air traffic) and natural emissions (e.g. desert dust) on the composition of the air and their effect on the climate. Increasing attention is also being paid to the chemistry of the condensed phase, particle formation and photochemistry in cloud droplets, long-distance transport and atmospheric degradation of pesticides and medium-volatile chemicals. Members of the working group also play a key role in the GDCh/DECHEMA/DBG Joint Committee on Chemistry, Air Quality and Climate (photooxidants, halogenated hydrocarbons) and in the expert group on fine dust of DECHEMA, KRdL and GDCh.
