Leibniz Institute for Tropospheric Researc

The Leibniz Institute for Tropospheric Research (TROPOS) is one of the leading European research institutes in the field of atmospheric aerosol particles and clouds. As World Calibration Centre for Aerosol Physics (WCCAP) within the framework of WMO-GAW, TROPOS provides know-how, experience, and instrumentation for the development, calibration, and operation of aerosol devices and inlet systems.

From 1993 on TROPOS was one of the founders of the CARIBIC project. Under the lead of MPI-C (until 2014) and KIT (from 2015) TROPOS supports the coordination of IAGOS-CARIBIC.

  • Design of the IAGOS aerosol inlets
  • Operation and data evaluation of the aerosol instruments in the IAGOS-CARIBIC container
