Prof. Dr. Klaus Schäfer

Senior scientist at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), Institute of Meteorology and Climate Research, Atmospheric Environmental Research (IMK-IFU), Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany
(research group: Regional Coupling of Ecosystem-Atmosphere),
and Professor of Atmospheric Physics

Research Interests:
• Air quality studies (mainly open-path FTIR and DOAS, passive FTIR, LIDAR, SODAR, RASS; sampling and analyses of particles)
• Determination of remote and diffuse emission source strengths (inverse dispersion modeling, measuring tunnels and open-path sensing)
• Development of validation data sets for numerical simulation models
