Accurate predictions of weather extremes such as heat waves or heavy precipitation are indispensable so that preventive actions can be taken by the authorities and the public at an early stage. The "Large-scale dynamics and predictability" group at the Institute of Meteorology and Climate Research investigates the physical and dynamical processes that control predictability and forecast skill of the atmospheric circulation. Our research is based on experiments with numerical weather prediction models, statistical analyses of large data sets as well as machine learning.
