Lina Aleke Holthusen

My scientific interest lies in the investigation of climate-relevant trace gases at the sea surface. The focus lies on production pathways and exchange processes with the atmosphere as well as on the influence of the surface micro layer and hydrodynamic processes. The main study areas of my research are polar regions.
