Since 1992 he is senior scientist and project leader in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany, at the Fraunhofer Institute for Atmospheric Environmental Research which became part of the Forschungszentrum Karlsruhe GmbH (FZK) as Institute for Meteorology and Climate Research, Department of Atmospheric Environmental Research (IMK-IFU) on 01 January 2002 and of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) formed from FZK and University of Karlsruhe on 01 October 2009. Previous relevant research work: - Air quality studies (mainly open-path FTIR and DOAS, passive FTIR, LIDAR, SODAR, RASS; sampling and analyses of particles) in urban and industrial areas as well as mountain terrain, - Determination of remote and diffuse emission source strengths by inverse dispersion modelling as well as by measuring tunnels (500 m2) and open-path sensing to improve emission inventories, - Development of validation data sets for numerical simulation models. He is author or co-author of 75 articles in refereed scientific journals or books and in total of about 300 publications (scientific papers, reports, articles) and gave about 160 oral or poster presentations. He gave lectures at the Technical University Graz and the University Innsbruck. Under his supervision 15 Diploma or Master thesis and 8 PhD thesis works were finished. He is chair of the annual conferences of EOS and SPIE Europe in the field of remote sensing of the atmosphere since 1997. He is Associate Editor of the electronic journal "Journal of Applied Remote Sensing". He is member of VDI/DIN working groups and CEN/TC 264/WG 18 on “Open path optical methods for the measurement of ambient air quality” for the development of guidelines.
