Atmospheric Radiation

The research team “Radiation” focuses on 3D modelling, spectral UV monitoring, monitoring of stratospheric ozone and special studies of solar shortwave radiation (with a nexus to PV technology). Furthermore the focus is on radiation budget, energy balance and the influence of climate change on ground insolation. The 20-year-long measurement data of UV radiation and stratospheric ozone on Hoher Sonnblick is one of the longest datasets of its sort on an international level. The measured data provides a fundament for the research of diverse topics such as environment, climate, medicine and meteorology.
