In ROMIC (Role of the Middle Atmosphere in Climate) we investigate the life cycle of internal gravity waves.


In PANDOWAE (Predictability ANd Dynamics Of Weather Systems in the Atlantic-European Sector) we quantify the role of diabatic processes for forecast errors associated with mid-latitude weather systems. The collaboration with Heini Wernli is a combined observational, diagnostic and modelling approach. More ...
