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 investigate the atmosphere and the cryosphere – and their interaction – through theoretical and conceptional approaches, experimental means and numerical modeling. Detailed information on specific research themes can be found for each of the Research Units below.
The Dynamics group at ACINN is mainly concerned with aspects of dynamical processes in mountainous areas.
The Atmospheric Physics and Chemistry group at ACINN studies air pollution and surface-atmosphere exchange processes of air pollutants
Turbulence is the main mechanism of exchange of mass, energy and momentum between the Earth surface and the overlying atmosphere and thus of vital importance across many disciplines.
TEAMx is an international research programme and experiment, which aims at better understanding, describing and modeling exchange processes between mountainous terrain and the atmosphere. ACINN hosts its programme coordination office.
