The Working Group administated by Prof. Uwe Ulbrich researches for the goal on a better understanding in physical processes in the atmosphere. The diagnostic research is principally concerned with:

  • Variablitiy of Climate (timescale is up to 200 years), with large-scale pattern (i.e. North Atlantic Oscillation NAO), cyclones (identification, tracks, conditions for growing, effects and impacts)
  • The occurence of meteorological extremes and its conditions
  • The consequences of meteorological extremes
  • Changes concerning of anthropogenic climate change

The projects base upon observational plus reanalysis data and numerical simulations (global and local climate models)
Comparing studies of climate models and observational climate data guide to a validation plus a better understanding and interpretation of the models. Results of these climate models get prepared for special users. So the interdisciplinary work of scientists with users outside of meteorology processes attends to more identification with relevant events und its underlying physical processes.
