Laboratory of Atmospheric Physics
In the Laboratory of Atmospheric Physics, the motions of the atmosphere are studied and modelled, including the planetary boundary layer dynamics, internal buoyancy waves, frontal and cyclonic processes, weather and climate formation.
Research aims are achieved developing new and updating existing numerical models of atmospheric dynamics. Numerical simulations are carried out at the High Performance Computing Centre of Tartu University .
The numerical weather prediction models HIRLAM and HARMONIE. are also adopted by us to the regional-scale high resolution weather prediction and maintained operationally as models (ETA)and (ETB) at the Estonian Meteorological and Hydrological Institute.
TAnother outstanding achievement we consider the restoration of the last-40-year Baltic regional weather in the database BaltAn65+.
