Research focus

  • Investigating the atmospheric CH3Cl-budget using a Large Volume Air Sampling System (LVASS) to determine stable isotopic compositions (δ2H, δ13C, δ37Cl) of atmospheric CH3Cl at several locations in Southern Germany

  • Assessing the role of microorganisms in CH3Cl-cycling in the marine environment employing stable isotope techniques

  • Tracing emission and degradation processes of CH3Cl by plants and phyllosphere microorganisms under natural conditions (in-vivo) vs. laboratory conditions (incubation experiments) using GC-MS, GC-IRMS and CRDS

  • Exploring the close relationship between the biomass-CO2-cycle and CH4-cycle in plants and the phyllosphere, using stable isotope techniques and microbiological methods
