Civil Aircraft for the Regular Investigation of the atmosphere Based on an Instrument Container (CARIBIC). IAGOS CARIBIC is an innovative scientific project to study and monitor important chemical and physical processes in the Earth’s atmosphere. Detailed and extensive measurements are made during long distance flights. CARIBIC deploys a modified airfreight container with automated scientific apparatus which are connected to an air and particle (aerosol) inlet underneath the aircraft. Using a passenger Airbus A340-600 from Lufthansa in total more than 530 flights are succesfully completed.


The ScaleX campaigns in the TERENO—preAlpine observatory were designed to address an overarching research question: How well can our observations constrain modeling uncertainties of biogeochemical cycles, and close the balances of energy and matter flows?


Austrian Science Fund (FWF): On the role of advection for the net carbon dioxide exchange of short-statured ecosystems in complex terrain.


EVENT II is a part of a series of field experiments in the Ecological Botanical Garden of the University of Bayreuth termed the EVENT Experiments with international and interdisciplinary research cooperation.


The TERRECO-IRTG program examines the way to carry out land management in mountain regions, in order to ensure sustainable yield of ecosystem services. Ecosystem services are all of the products and gains that people obtain from natural ecosystems and natural resources in a region.
