UFP in Discussion

Measurement Methods and New Findings

A Seminar at the Taunus Observatory

05 juin 2024 Taunusobservatorium auf dem Kleinen Feldberg, Taunus

This seminar focuses on the monitoring of ultrafine particles, an important component of air quality that requires special attention due to their tiny size and potentially harmful effects on health and the environment. This seminar promises an exciting journey through a variety of topics related to ultrafine particles. From the characterization of aerosols in the Amazon rainforest to a specially equipped measurement vehicle that investigates various aspects of the impact of UFP on nature and humans, we offer you a multifaceted agenda.

UFP in Discussion - Measuring methods and new findings: A seminar at the Taunus ObservatoryThe location is certainly one of the highlights: the Taunus Observatory on the Kleiner Feldberg. Theory and practice can be directly combined on site.

The following speakers will report from the field:

  • Prof. Curtius/Andreas Kürten (Goethe University in Frankfurt)
  • Tobias Grein (German Aerospace Center)
  • Jana Englert (Max Planck Institute for Chemistry, Mainz)

What you can expect from the seminar:

  • Measurements and application examples
    • Practical application of ultrafine particle monitoring
    • Experience from real projects and investigations
  • Measurement techniques and instruments
    • Particle measuring devices and how they work
    • Selection of suitable instruments for different applications
  • Discussion and exchange of experience
    • Interactive discussions and experiences from the field
    • Networking and making contacts

Date: June 05, 2024
Time: 10:00-16:30
Location: Taunus Observatory on the Kleiner Feldberg, Frankfurt

This seminar is aimed at environmental protection experts, engineers, regulators and anyone interested in the monitoring and control of ultrafine particles.

  • People from networks such as ACTRIS/EUROCHAMP/GUAN etc.
  • Scientists interested in the monitoring of ultrafine particles


  1. Transfer: We offer a transfer to the Taunus Observatory from Goethe University. Meeting time is already at 9:00 am at Altenhöferallee 1, 60438 Frankfurt. If you would like to travel to the seminar venue by car at 10 a.m., a parking lot is available near the observatory.

  2. Finishing with a barbecue: We would like to invite you to join us for a barbecue at the end of the day. Please let us know if you are interested when you register.

We look forward to welcoming you to our seminar focusing on the monitoring of ultrafine particles and to gaining important insights into this important environmental topic.
