Andreas Stohl is a senior scientist at the Norwegian Institute of Air Research (NILU).

Research Interests and Collaborations   

Andreas Stohl's research interests are on all aspects of transport in the atmosphere, ranging from pollution transport to the transport of water vapor. He is the main author of the widely used Lagrangian particle dispersion model FLEXPART. Areas of active research are on the intercontinental transport of air pollution, the long-range transport of fire emissions, Arctic air pollution and climate issues, identification of the evaporative source regions of water falling as precipitation, inverse modeling of greenhouse gas emissions as well as of volcanic emissions.

Andreas Stohl has led many national and international projects such as STACCATO or POLARCAT and has authored or co-authored more than 170 peer-reviewed publications.
