Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics ACP Award 2021

ACP Award 2021 goes to Kristýna Kantnerová, ETH Zürich and Empa.

At the occasion of the virtual Swiss Geoscience meeting in Geneva in November 2021, the ACP Award for Atmospheric Research was presented to Kristýna Kantnerová for her PhD thesis “Analysis of clumped isotopes of nitrous oxide: method development and first applications”. Her work shows an impressive thematic depth, ranging from several essential instrumental and methodological developments in the field of greenhouse gas isotope analysis to the interpretation of fingerprints of major source / sink processes.
