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.

 New curricula for the bachelor's and master's degree in meteorology starting in winter semester 2022/2023

On October 1, 2022, new curricula for the bachelor's and master's degree in meteorology will come into force. The bachelor's degree offers comprehensive vocational basic training. In the Master's program, students have the opportunity to specialize in the areas of weather, climate, environment and computational meteorology. The new curricula can be found here:
