Our ACTRIS related focus is on trace gas and aerosol ground based remote sensing. We are involved in spectral measurements with Pandora spectrometers for trace gas remote sensing and operate a sun photometer to retrieve aerosol optical depth (AOD) and other aerosol related parameters.  Our long-term AOD measurement series goes back to the year 2007.

Role in ACTRIS:

  • ACTRIS Austria coordinator
  • Contributing to trace gas remote sensing
  • Operating a central facility unit
    • Trace gas remote sensing (CREGARS), unit: UVVIS-AT


  • Aerosols (remote sensing)
  • Meteorology parameter
  • Cloud camera
