|We investigate the nature of atmospheric processes by means of observations and simulations. Especially we are interested in: |
- Generation, propagation, and dissipation of atmospheric waves
- Transport processes and atmospheric composition changes
- Sudden stratospheric warming and mesospheric cooling
- Role of stratospheric ozone and water vapour in the climate system
Origins, pathways, consequences, and inter-relations of atmospheric processes are derived from measurements of various instruments such as microwave radiometer, rain radar, and radiosonde. The observations are combined, analysed, and visualized. Parallel, we simulate and interpret the characteristics of atmospheric processes with atmospheric models.
