He contributes to several international atmospheric research projects like SCIPPER, CompMon, MeSMarT, GMOS and CARIBIC.
The German ship emission monitoring network in an international context
In this talk the German ship emission monitoring network will be introduced as part of the European monitoring network. The remote measurement method will be explained and some general statistics on observed comliance rates according to MARPOL Annex VI will be shown. Finally the link to current activities in the SCIPPER project and new developments in the Bonn Agreement will be shown.
