COVID AQ Campaign

In addition to our long-term observations at the IAO, we have started extensive AQ measurements in response to the SARS-CoV2 outbreak and a complete lockdown of Western Austria. Austria was among the first European countries (after Italy) to impose an effective quarantine in March 2020. This will be a great dataset to compare with our 2019 campaign that was organized during the same season.


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.
