|Middle Atmosphere Research in Leipzig
Welcome to the Homepage of our working group at the Institute for Meteorology of the University of Leipzig!
Collm Observatory Main Building
A contribution to this is made at the Leipzig Institute for Meteorology (LIM). The main research themes are climatology of winds of the upper middle atmosphere, investigations on long-term trends and the interannual variability of the mesopause and the interaction of different atmospheric layers, especially the stratosphere, mesosphere, and lower thermosphere.
We use circulation models like the COlogne Model of the Middle Atmosphere COMMA for simulating middle atmosphere winds, waves, and temperatures in the stratosphere, mesosphere and lower thermosphere.
At Collm Observatory, also seismological measurements are carried out by the Institute for Geophysics and Geology .
