Distinguished Lecture Tour 2013

Distinguished Lecturer

The EAG’s Distinguished Lecture Tour 2013 was presented by Pr. Thomas Röckmann, Utrecht University, Netherlands.

Thomas Röckmann is a leading specialist in the development and application of isotope techniques to atmospheric research. He is head of the Atmospheric Physics and Chemistry Group at the Institute for Marine and Atmospheric research Utrecht (IMAU) of Utrecht University with currently 27 group members. His group operates a large and innovative atmospheric chemistry laboratory specialized in isotope ratio measurements on numerous trace species.

His research covers a wide field of applications with isotope studies, e.g. global trace gas budgets, detailed kinetic isotope effects, impact of anthropogenic activities on the atmosphere or stratosphere-troposphere exchange. At the age of 44, he has over 120 publications in peer refereed journals (ISI listed). He participates or has participated as PI for isotope analysis in the EU projects EUROHYDROS (coordinator of WP2), SCOUT-O3, CRYOSTAT, EUPLEX and TROCCINOX and the European ice coring project NEEM (FP7).
