Welcome to the Department of Meteorology and Geophysics

Our work applies mathematics and physics to the study of physical processes occuring in and around the Earth. For our research, field observations, high-performance computing, and remote sensing methods get combined.

The overarching goal of our work is to further the understanding of the physics of our planet. Much of our research is devoted to (numerical) weather prediction, climatology, seismology, and the Earth's gravity field.
