 Organisation Description The Max Planck Institute for Meteorology conducts pure and applied research on the Earth Climate. It's staff members are dedicated to producing excellent and objective research results. The three departments of the institute develop complex numerical models of the climate system compartments and couple them together.

Experiments (e.g. using own instrumental developments in remote sensing) and model studies of climate processes including the chemical composition of the atmosphere lay the basis for continuous improvement of global 3-dimensional models, which can then be used to make predicitions for the future.

Recently, the institute has placed particular emphasis on the coupling aspect between the different climate compartments with the ultimate goal of creating a comprehensive Earth system model.
