Working Group "Atmospheric Risks"

Group leader Prof. Dr. Michael Kunz, Deputy group leader Dr. Susanna Mohr

Meteorological extreme events, such as winter storms, heavy precipitation, hail, or convective wind gusts are often associated with serious consequences for the society and their assets. However, these events occur not everywhere with the same intensity, but exhibit a high spatial and temporal variability. Within this context, various research projects are carried out in the working group "Atmospheric Risks". In the course of the relevant weather systems, a special focus is on severe convective storms, hailstorms and heavy rainfall events.
