I’m a PhD student at the Atmospheric Aerosol Research division of the Institute of Meteorology and Climate Research (IMK-AAF) at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). We are working on the investigation and theoretical description of heterogeneous ice nucleation. Therefore, in collaboration with the Colorado State University, we are building two new instruments called INKA (Ice Nucleation Instrument of the KArlsruhe Institute of Technology): A laboratory version to investigate the impact of atmospherically relevant aerosol aging processes (e.g., chemical coating) and a mobile version to measure atmospheric INP concentrations. The poster presents the INKA setup and shows first successful measurements with the laboratory INKA version.
