Meteorology

A common denominator for many of the research activities is quantitative computations of atmospheric processes with the aid of theoretical and numerical models.

About the group

We carry out research in dynamical, physical and chemical meteorology. Our research activities focus on large-scale dynamics, turbulence and boundary-layer processes, aerosol-climate interactions, polar lows, cloud microphysics, radiative forcing, atmospheric chemistry and many other related topics. The atmosphere is an integral part of the climate system, demanding an interdisciplinary approach. This includes interactions with hydrology, ecology, biogeochemistry to improve our understanding of the changes in the water and carbon cycles under climate change. Further on we collaborate with archeologists to understand the impacts of large historic volcanic eruptions, and with economists to include interaction between climate change, economy and emissions in climate models. We make extensive use of computationally intensive numerical models running on national HPC-clusters. The main models we use are NorESM, WACCM, CTSM, WRF and WRF-CHEM.
