The Climate and Geophysics Section works with climate and the geophysics on Earth. The geophysical science activities include the physics of the atmosphere, the oceans, and the geophysics of the solid Earth. Process-understanding, simulation, mapping and prediction of these components are our main topics. Key words: Numerical weather prediction, climate physics, anthropogenic climate change, carbon cycle, paleo-climate.
Our tools are, to a large extent, computer models. It is important for us to utilize and compare measured data with the calculations in the models, and to this end we use e.g. classical meteorological measurements, many different types of satellite data, new ocean measurements from deep sea buoys and many seismic measurements. We have access to powerful super computers with our partner institutions and we are currently building our own independent cluster, which can also be used for Bachelor´s and Thesis projects.
