The world's first urban greenhouse gas sensor network based on the differential column principle (MUCCnet - Munich Urban Carbon Column network) has been regognized by both the national and international press. BR Abendschau shows a TV report, Deutschlandfunk a radio feature, and Physics Today, one…

Prof. Chen was named one of Germany's "Top 40 under 40". In this list, the magazine Capital honors the most important talents from business, politics, science and society.

Our group has been commissioned by the United Nations Environment Programme to use our novel differential column method to study the greenhouse gas emissions of major European cities, in order to determine the influence of the natural gas infrastructure on the rising global methane levels (Project:…

The publication covers the first study worldwide that determines the methane emission of a big festival. We found that such festivals are significant sources of the potent greenhouse gas methane. However, they are not considered in the state-of-the-art emission inventories so far.
