Long Night of Sciences Jena 2022 (LNDW 2022)
Science is exciting, science is fun! For an entire evening, institutes, laboratories, lecture halls and clinics in Jena open their doors into the night and show guests how versatile and interesting their research is. There is a lot to marvel at, learn and try out for young and old! We will be there again this year with an exciting and interactive program.

For further activities, please visit the German event page.

High-precision isotope analyses of atmospheric gases

Where does the carbon dioxide in the atmosphere come from? What information do we get from analysing the stable isotope ratios in the air? In our BGC-IsoLab, you will not only get the answers but also an insight into a modern mass spectrometry laboratory.

Event: Lab visit
Location: BGC IsoLab, meeting poin in the entrance hall
Time: 07:30 pm
