Climate Research Group at the chair of Physical Geography and Quantitative Methods

The Climate Research Group consists of staff members of the chair of Physical Geography and Quantitative Methods, PhD students and student assistants working on climate related issues in the framework of research projects, dissertations or other theses. Main research activities are on the field of empirical climatology with emphasis on quantitative analysis of recent and historical climate change and atmosperic circulation variability. In addition model related and applied studies in urban and agroclimatology are performed. Regional foci are the North-Atlantic European region, the Mediterranean and Southern Africa.

Main areas of recent research:

Long-term climate and circulation variability

Estimation of future regional climate change and seasonal climate predictions Teleconnections in the climate system
Automated circulation type classifications
Circulation dynamics of climatic extreme events
