The Satellite group at the Max Planck Institute for Chemistry is currently looking for a PhD student who will study sources and formation processes of secondary organic aerosols by satellite remote sensing of trace gases and aerosols.

Project description: The PhD student will study the influences of trace gases on secondary organic aerosol formation. This will be done by comparing trace gas concentrations (NO2, SO2, HCHO, and CHOCHO) from the GOME-2 and OMI satellite instruments with aerosol concentrations measured by the MODIS satellite instruments and ground-based aerosol monitoring stations belonging to the AERONET network.
The influences of temperature, vegetation type, and leaf area index will also be studied. The work will be performed in collaboration with Prof. Allen Goldstein, and may include a research visit to his lab in Berkeley, California.
