Beginn der Flussmessungen
Vor 20 Jahren, am 5. Juli 1996, begannen die Eddykovarianzmessungen und somit die Bestimmung der CO2- und H2O-Flüsse an der Ankerstation Tharandter Wald.
The climate system with its complex interactions and feedbacks does not easily support single process oriented approaches. However, process understanding remains the key to understand nature through analysis and model building. Here the common research mission at the Department of Meteorology is “Surface- Atmosphere-Interaction” with the necessary, i.e. microscale to mesoscale resolution.
In the last ten years the scope of the Department of Meteorology at the Dresden University of Technology was considerable enlarged, remote sensing and boundary layer modeling became additional important research areas. Nevertheless, research and teaching remain equally important tasks of all members of the department.
