The positions of numerous measurement campaigns are shown on a world map. The focus is on the polar regions as well as the tropical and subtropical areas. Graphic: Evi Jäkel / University of Leipzig
Alternativtext: The schematics shows a cross section through a grating spectrometer. It illustrates the simplified photon path. Radiation passes the entrance slit. A grating disperses the radiation into it‘s spectral components which are detected by a photodiode array. Graphic: André Ehrlich / University of Leipzig
