    YERUN RMA 2018 - Meet Katharina Heintz

    From Dublin City University --> To University of Ulm Thanks to the YERUN mobility award, I was able to visit Prof. Dr. Sven Rau’s group at the University of Ulm. Working in chemical sciences in the field of so called “solar fuels” our aim is to harvest solar energy and convert it into chemical energy. The collaboration between the Rau group, University of Ulm and the Vos/Pryce group, at DCU has existed for several years. It has already led to several publications as the research areas are very related.

  • Research at UEF -> Wetlands are key for accurate greenhouse gas measurements in the Arctic

    The Arctic is rapidly warming, with stronger effects than observed elsewhere in the world. The Arctic regions are particularly important with respect to climate change, as permafrost soils store huge amounts of the Earth’s soil carbon (C). Warming of Arctic soils and thawing of permafrost can have substantial consequences for the global climate, as the large C stored in soils could be released to the atmosphere as the greenhouse gases carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane (CH4). The release of these heat-trapping gases, in turn, has the potential to further enhance climate warming.
