Dr. Jan Willem Bottenheim is a Dutch scientist specializing in atmospheric chemistry. He has extensive experience in studying reactive chemistry in the Arctic region. His research has led to significant discoveries, including the unexpected disappearance of ozone and the correlation between mercury and ozone levels. Dr. Bottenheim has been instrumental in transforming weather stations into research observatories, particularly Alert, Nunavut, Canada, and Barrow, now Utqiaġvik, Alaska, where measurements related to climate and atmospheric chemistry are conducted. He actively collaborates with international partners and promotes interdisciplinary cooperation to gain a better understanding of atmospheric processes.
