Scientific Projects

  • Atmospheric Ionization Module Osnabrück (AIMOS)
    Calculates the atmospheric ionization due to particle precipitation and is used in a couple of climate models.

  • Atmospheric Ionization during Substorm Activity (AISstorm)
    Investigates particle precipitation and atmospheric ionization during smaller but more frequent magnetic fluctuations.
