The INTEGRAL Team:

Prof. Gregor Rehder

Mail: gregnullor.rehder@io-warnemuende.de

Gregor coordinates INTEGRAL and leads WP 1 and 3. He is vice head of the Department of Marine Chemistry and head of the Trace Gas Biogeochemistry group at IOW, including the carbon system and non-CO2 Greenhouse gas labs. He is also in charge of the trace gas instrumentation on board VOS “Finnmaid” since it became designated part of ICOS in 2012.
