Institutions and Services

The infrastructure of the Chair of Climatology reflects the objectives, methods and needs of the research projects. With the Urban Climate Observatory (UCO) Berlin, it serves the cross-scale, long-term research of weather, climate and air quality in Berlin and the surrounding area. The UCO consists of automatic weather stations of the Urban Climate Observation Network (UCON), meteorological measurement towers and instruments for ground-based remote sensing. Another essential part of the infrastructure is the IT services department, which is responsible for the maintenance and further development of the chair's hardware and software as well as the associated services. The Experimental Laboratory completes the infrastructure. It is used, among other things, for the development of hardware and software solutions for the acquisition, analysis and management of atmospheric data and carries out stationary and mobile measurements.
