The Experimental Laboratory at the Chair of Climatology is responsible for the development of hardware and software solutions for the acquisition, analysis and management of atmospheric data. The Experimental Lab includes various components for conducting stationary and mobile measurements as well as software solutions for data management and data analysis for the Urban Climate Observatory Berlin (UCO) and for experimental studies in the context of research projects and courses.
The BIOMET station is used for human-biometeorological studies. With the help of three radiation balance sensors (Kipp & Zonen, CNR4), short- and long-wave radiation flux densities from six spatial directions are measured to derive an average radiation temperature. The BIOMET station can be used stationary or mobile.
