DLR studies changes in atmospheric pollution due to the Covid-19 pandemic
A German team, under the leadership of the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) and the Max Planck Institute for Chemistry (MPIC), wants to find out how strongly the restrictions in the wake of the COVID 19 pandemic will affect the atmosphere. Over the next two weeks, as part of the BLUESKY research programme, scientists will measure concentrations of trace gases and pollutants in the air over European urban areas and in the flight corridor to North America. The aim of these research missions is to investigate how reduced emissions from industry and transport are changing atmospheric chemistry and physics.
