Christian von Savigny

Group at IUP:

SCIAMACHY limb group , WG Burrows

Current Position:

Senior scientist and Privatdozent

Research Interest:

Physics and chemistry of the middle atmosphere, optical remote sensing of the stratosphere and mesosphere, noctilucent clouds / polar mesospheric clouds, Stratospheric ozone

Research Career:

Christian von Savigny studied physics, atmospheric science and philosophy at the Universities of Tübingen, Heidelberg and at York University in Toronto, Canada. He completed his diploma in physics at the University of Heidelberg in 1998 and earned a Ph.D. degree in Earth and Space Science from York University in Toronto, Canada in 2002. Afterwards he joined the Institute of Environmental Physics at the University of Bremen and completed his Habilitation in experimental physics in 2009. He is deeply involved in many aspects of the analysis of SCIAMACHY limb-scatter observations and teaches a variety of courses at the B.Sc., M.Sc. and Ph.D. level as part of the programmes in physics and environmental physics at the University of Bremen.
