Welcome Michael!

Michael Stichaner joined APC group earlier this month. He did his BSc at ACINN and started his master’s studies last year. He is using data collected during the IAO IOP2018 studying atmospheric pollutants such as NO, NOx and CO near a busy road (Roadside Station Innrain) and their enhancement ratios (EnR) over CO2. One of the goals of his master thesis is to put those pollutants in context with EnR of emission inventories and those measured at the IAO tower.

Amazing Atmosphere

Studying the atmosphere is pretty cool all by itself. But with a southerly flow over the Alps shaping the clouds and the sun already below the horizon the atmosphere also rewards us with spectacular light displays as captured on 6 Nov 2018 from the top of Bruno-Sander-Haus at Innsbruck University facing west towards Roßkogel.
