Aerosol Physics & Environmental Physics (AEP), University Vienna

Airborne measurements of dust layer properties.

The AEP group is oriented towards basic aerosol science. Currently, research focuses on the following topics:

  • Airborne aerosol measurements
  • Abundance and properties of cloud condensation nuclei
  • Measurement and intercomparison of measurement methods for black and brown carbon in aerosols
  • Nucleation and nanoparticle formation in ambient and laboratory settings
  • Impacts of meteorology and biogenic contributions on ambient atmospheric aerosols
  • Development of new measurement methods for the characterization of nanometer-sized particles

Role in ACTRIS:

  • Contributing to aerosol in situ and cloud in situ measurements at Sonnblick
  • Leading basic research group in aerosol science in Austria


  • Aerosol parameter
