Welcome to the research of the Working Group Meteorology of the Upper and Middle Atmosphere. Here we you can find information to our research profile.

Research profile

The working group “Upper Atmosphere Meteorology” studies the entire middle and upper atmosphere, i.e. stratosphere, mesosphere, and thermosphere/ionosphere. The investigations also include the coupling of these layers with the lower atmosphere, and the connection with meteorological processes, as well as coupling processes between the neutral and ionized atmosphere. To this end we perform radar observations of the upper mesosphere/lower thermosphere at Collm Observatory, analysis of satellite data of the neutral and ionized atmosphere, and numerical simulation of the middle and upper atmosphere using global circulation models.
