Faculty of Science, Centre for Applied Geoscience

Application deadline: 15.03.2023

The Environmental Physics group at the Centre for Applied Geoscience (University of Tübingen, Germany) studies turbulent atmospheric flows using small automatically operating unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) and ground-station networks. Our main interests are the turbulent energy and momentum exchange between the earth surface and the lower atmosphere (boundary-layer meteorology) , the interaction of turbulent flows with wind turbines and orography, and aerosol particle transport in the lower atmosphere. We develop fast meteorological sensors (especially for our UAS), calibration methods and software for data analysis. Currently, we are looking for a
