Mark Weber

Group at IUP:


group leader UVSAT



Current Position:


senior scientist (WIMI)


Research Interest:


My research focuses on trace gas and radiation retrieval from UV/visible satellite spectrometers and its application to earth remote sensing and climate research.


Research Career:


I earned my Ph.D. at the Physics Department of the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, USA, in 1992. As a National Research Council and National Academy of Science (NRC/NAS) research fellow I worked for about three years in the Laboratory of Extraterrestrial Physics at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, near Washington, DC, before joining the Environmental Physics group in Bremen.

Additional Information:


In 2005 I was invited to join the WMO-GAW Ozone Science Advisory Group. I am contributing author and reviewer of selected chapters of the recent WMO Scientific Ozone Assessments in 2006 and 2010. Currently I am an associate editor of the peer-review journal Atmospheric Measurement Techniques (Atmos. Meas. Tech.). Currently I am an elected member of the academic senate of the University of Bremen and member of the faculty council (Fachbereichsrat).
