Working group Theoretical Meteorology

In theoretical meteorology, different questions of meteorological research are treated with the help of mathematical-physical methods. The basis for this are the equations based on physical axioms for the description of the thermo-hydrodynamic processes taking place in the atmosphere. The mathematical process descriptions derived from these equations are transformed into numerical algorithms which allow the processes in the atmosphere to be simulated with the aid of computer calculations.
