The Objectives

The objectives of the proposed research are to:

  • Perform the first world-wide characterisation of COS isotopologues by measuring seasonal, latitudinal, and altitude variations in troposphere and stratosphere
  • Measure COS gradients over the troposphere–stratosphere transition up to 30 km altitude using innovative AirCore sampling techniques
  • Investigate fractionation effects during soil and plant uptake in laboratory experiments
  • Develop the first model with capabilities to simulate COS-isotopologues and the coupled COS and CO2 cycles
  • Pioneer the use of satellite observations of COS and its isotopologues
  • Constrain the budgets of COS and CO2 using inverse modelling techniques employing surface measurements, satellite data, and new AirCore and isotopic COS measurements
