Exchange Processes between the Surface and the Atmospheric Boundary Layer

The exchange of energy, gases, and aerosol particles between the surface (vegetation, urban landscape) is mostly driven by turbulent processes. We study the turbulent exchange of greenhouse gases like H2O, CO2, CH4, N2O, and O3, but also those of aerosol particles of various sizes including fog droplets. We employ the eddy covariance method, for which we develop experimental applications and correction algorithms.
