Atmospheric research at KIT is one of the best in the world

The current ranking of the Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU), also known as the "Shanghai" ranking, lists KIT's atmospheric research in an outstanding 8th place in a global comparison. Compared to the previous year, KIT improved by eight places, making it the best university in Germany in this area.



Wettervorhersagen unserer Partner:

Welcome to the Institute of Meteorology and Climate Research - Department Troposphere Research (IMK-TRO). In the field of tropospheric research, fundamental research on climate, water cycle and trace gas budgets are carried out. These atmospheric processes such as turbulence, convection, cloud formation, aerosol physics, precipitation formation and exchange processes on the Earth's surface by measurements and theoretical methods are examined in detail. The results are used in models of the atmosphere to represent and predict processes in the climate system or weather phenomena.



Which are the large-scale processes that influence thunderstorm activity in Europe?

Research on extreme weather events and climate change has made significant steps forward in recent years. However, a better understanding of the influence of large-scale processes on thunderstorm activity is still required.

Performance criteria of wall-building materials under influence of climate change

A technical requirement profile for plasters was developed that actively intervenes in indoor climate by moisture storage and transport capacity.

1st ClimXtreme – Module A meeting takes place in Karlsruhe1. ClimXtreme - Modul A Treffen findet in Karlsruhe statt

On the 9th and 10th of January 2020, the IMK held the first Climate change and eXtreme Events (ClimXtreme) project meeting, devoted to Module A, Physics and Processes.

Climate change impacts on European olive orchards

Climate change will have a strong impact on southern European olive producing countries

From Rain to Flood?

HYDREX 2019, Measuring campaign in the Müglitz valley in Saxony is about to be completed. Helmholtz research centres carry out joint measurement campaign on hydrological extremes.

Volcanic Ash Forecast with ICON-ART

Simulation of ash dispersion after the eruption of Raikoke volcano, one of the strongest eruptions during the last 30 years

Sub-hourly GPS assimilation for a better simulation of heavy precipitation

With climate change, an increase in the frequency and intensity of extreme precipitation is expected in the Western Mediterranean (WMed). Simulating this high impact weather remains a challenge

Two YIN grants for interdisciplinary research

Young investigator group leaders cooperate with mathematicians and energy system modelers.

Relative impact of aerosol, soil moisture and orography on convection

For the first time, the relative impact of orography, soil moisture and aerosols on precipitation over Germany was analyzed for different weather regimes.
