Climate & air quality
Limiting climate change and air pollution is one of today’s greatest societal challenges. Discover how we contribute to the climate transition with research on climate and air quality.
Climate change and air pollution
We’re developing methods to measure particulate matter, nitrogen, and greenhouse gases. And we're identifying the sources and effects of emissions.
Our latest developments
Climate change makes carbon sinks more vulnerable
In a new publication by ICOS, new data confirms that natural carbon sinks such as the ocean and forests are not stable.
Climate, air and sustainability
We are working on solutions to climate change, air quality, sustainability, and emission reduction issues for companies and governments.
Particulate matter, an elusive problem - but what is particulate matter?
A more effective particulate policy in five steps
Why the current particulate matter standard does not solve the problem
Hugo Denier van der GonFunctie:Principal Scientist
I seek to identify, investigate and understand the consequences of human activities on the environment, especially on air quality and global climate change. I believe sound science can make a difference in the complex, but necessary, transition to a sustainable society.
Martijn SchaapFunctie:Professor Atmospheric Chemistry
Major environmental challenges of the 21st century relate to the composition of our atmosphere. Exposure to pollutants such as particulate matter is associated with significant health impacts. Deposition of atmospheric reactive nitrogen causes a loss of biodiversity in ecosystems through eutrophication.
