Field of Activity
The geophysical-meteorological research in the institute area traditionally includes 'external geophysics', the physics of the entire earth's atmosphere.
A meteorological station has been operated at the university since 1836 and at the current location since 1891. The research group is currently supervising a semi-automated weather station (TAWES) in cooperation with GeoSphere Austria (former Central Institute for Meteorology and Geodynamics). In addition, as part of the ARAD project (Austrian RADiation), high-quality radiation measurements are carried out at the University of Graz and at the Kanzelhöhe Observatory in cooperation with GeoSphere Austria.
The physics of the 'high atmosphere' (aeronomics) is a research focus that is operated together with the Institute for Space Research of the Austrian Academy of Sciences.
