Doctoral programme Mountain Climate and Environment (DP MCE)

Head

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

Deputy Head

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

Coordination/Management

To be announced shortly.

Aims

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.
