ACINN is devoted to basic research in the areas of weather forecasting, mountain meteorology, earth atmosphere interactions and ice-climate relations. Our research activity is largely supported by third-party funding.
We offer a full degree programme in Atmospheric Sciences, from Bachelor to Master and PhD. Our teaching covers all the core subjects of the dynamics, physics, chemistry of the atmosphere-cryosphere-climate system and includes prerequisites from mathematics, statistics, physics and earth sciences.
The Department of Atmospheric and Cryospheric Sciences (ACINN) is one of the few university departments worldwide where research and education in atmospheric science and glaciology are co-located. It is located in the heart of the Alps. Therefore, ACINN's research and teaching focus on mountain weather and forecasting, mountain climate, earth-atmosphere interaction – with an emphasis on snow- or ice-covered surfaces, exchange of gases, aerosols and other atmospheric properties over complex topography – and ice-climate relations. ACINN is embedded in the university's research areas Mountain Regions and Scientific Computing. It plays a key role in the research centre Climate - Cryosphere and Atmosphere.
