Meteorology, Oceanography and Solid Earth Physics >

The climate of the Earth is characterized by variations on very different timescales: From quick variations on a day to day basis to slow fluctuations over months to years and milennia. In the research group Climate and Geophysics we try to observe, understand, simulate and predict the conditions and variability in the earth´s climate, atmosphere and oceans.

We investigate processes within the researchfields of glaciology, meteorology and oceanography, which are the causes of both natural and anthropogenic climate changes. It is safe to say that this has become an ever more pressing agenda in the last decades.

We utilize numerical computermodels that we continuously develop and test. We have access to powerful supercomputers with our partner-institutions and we are currently constructing our own, independent cluster, which can be used for Bacehelor and Master´s projects.
