Article
Full-text available
Observation of the climate and ecosystem of ice covered polar seas is a timely task for the scientific community. The goal is to assess the drastic and imminent changes of the polar sea ice cover induced by climate change. Retreating and thinning sea ice affects the planets energy budget, atmospheric, and oceanic circulation patterns as well as the...
Article
We present here the first evidence of photodesorption induced by low-intensity non-resonant light from an yttrium thin foil, which works as a neutralizer for Rb and Fr ions beam. Neutral atoms are suddenly ejected from the metal surface in a pulsed regime upon illumination with a broadband flash light and then released in the free volume of a pyrex...
Thesis
Full-text available
Sea ice plays a major role in the global climate as it represents the interface between the ocean and the atmosphere and thus is of great importance for the energy budget of the whole planet. Climate change has caused a significant rise in air temperature during the last decades that has led to a rapid sea ice decline. Until now, sea ice retreat an...
Presentation
Full-text available
Research at the ice-water interface below drifting sea-ice is crucial for the investigation of the fluxes of energy, momentum, and matter across the atmosphere-ice-ocean boundary. Transmission of solar energy through the ice and snow layers causes warming of the upper ocean and melting of the ice itself. It is also a key factor for in and under-ice...
