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. Information about the new curricula can be found here:



Our department is often buzzing with energy, but two days in April this year were particularly busy: on April 11 and 12 we hosted the Ice Cloud...


The Department of Meteorology and Geophysics currently seeks to fill postdoc position. Applications can be submitted until 16.06.2024.


On April 24, 2024, there was a wonderful farewell party at our department of our colleagues Tobias Necker, Lukas Brunner and Lukas Kugler.
