Welcome at the Institute for Atmospheric and Environmental Sciences

The Institute for Atmospheric and Environmental Sciences (German: Institut für Atmosphäre und Umwelt, IAU) is part of the department of Geosciences (Fachbereich 11) of Goethe University Frankfurt. The institute is divided into 5 research groups: Aerosol and Environmental Science group, Experimental Atmospheric Research, Mesoscale Meteorology and Climate, Theory of Atmospheric Dynamics and Climate, and Analytical Environmental Chemistry.


Using experimental, theoretical and modelling approaches, we aim at improving the understanding of physical and chemical processes in the atmosphere and the environment.
