University of Graz - Wegener Center for Climate and Global Change
The Wegener Center for Climate and Global Change is an interdisciplinary, internationally oriented research institute of the University of Graz, which combines the competences of the University in the research areas of "Climate, Environmental, and Global Change". The Earth observation research group investigates modern satellite-based methods for remote sensing of the atmosphere and the climate system.
Technologies and competences
The Center conducts research in remote sensing by occultation methods (like GNSS radio occultation and LEO-LEO occultation) and other coherent signal and spectroradiometric methods (infrared and microwave). The main aim is to conceive and advance methods and algorithms for weather and climate. Research includes topics such as atmospheric change, climate modelling, climate change detection and attribution, integrated climate analysis.
