Regional Climate and Atmosphere

Key Scientific Activity at UFS

Regional Climate and Atmosphere

Research is focused on local to global scale changes in climate parameters and atmospheric constituents. Key issues are:

  • Atmospheric observations using ground-based remote sensing (NDACC)
  • Scientific case studies relating to the behaviour of the atmosphere under conditions of global change
  • Numerical simulation to predict future regional climate change
  • Process studies relating to the interaction of regional climate change in the biosphere,hydrosphere and cryosphere
  • Strategies for adapting to climate consequences and alpine geo-risks
