Doctoral programme Mountain Climate and Environment (DP MCE)


Univ.-Prof. Dr. Kurt Nicolussi (Department of Geography)

Deputy Head

Dr. Fabien Maussion (Department of Atmospheric and Cryospheric Sciences)


To be announced shortly.


Mountains are highly complex barriers to atmospheric flow and modify it accordingly while creating a wide range of environmental gradients on short spatio-temporal scales that do not exist in any other region. By combining a wide range of expertise in atmospheric, cryospheric, biospheric, hydrospheric, atmospheric-chemical, geomorphodynamic and paleoclimate sciences at the UIBK, the doctoral programme seeks to make major steps forward in (a) identifying, understanding, and quantifying climate processes, past climate variability, and future climate-induced changes to the environment at appropriate spatiotemporal scales in the Alps, (b) herewith providing a thorough basis for impact and adaptation studies, (c) perform physical science-based studies and (d) developing tools to be appropriately adapted in other mountain regions.
