Tropospheric aerosols and clouds play a central role in the coupled system men-environment-climate.

The corresponding processes are highly complex and a successful research requires strong cooperation between different scientific fields.

TROPOS is an internationally leading institution aiming at application oriented basic research on aerosols and clouds and their interactions.

TROPOS monitors, understands and models the physical and chemical processes of tropospheric aerosols and clouds from the molecular and micro-scale to long-range transports into polluted regions of various strengths.

TROPOS is contact for politics, society and science in the impact-fields health and climate.
