Meteorology group

 

The Meteorology group at the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics at the University of Ljubljana is carrying out the only undergraduate and graduate meteorology program in Slovenia. The undergraduate program is a part of the Department of Physics 3-year BSc educational programs and gives a BSc degree in meteorology with geophysics. Master and doctorate programs in meteorology are carried out during two and three, respectively years of additional meteorology training. (more about studies).

 

The research areas include atmospheric dynamics on various scales, coupled chemical-dynamical modelling in complex terrain, precipitation measurements by satellites and modelling, data assimilation and regional climate modelling. Reserach activities include close collaboration with Slovenian weather service and extensive collaborations in Europe and worldwide (more about research).

Weather forecast


Forecast
The weather forecast is produced as a part of the activities within the Centre of excellence SPACE-SI and in collaboration with the Meteorological office of the Environmental Agency of Slovenia (EARS). The initial and lateral boundary conditions come from the Aladin-SI, the operational EARS model. The forecast is produced by using the model WRF.

Studies

Study of meteorology takes the form of an independent university first cycle degree program Meteorology with Geophysics since 2009 (when switched to the "Bologna system"). The basic objective of the program is to train experts who will be able to solve problems both from the basic fields of atmospheric physics, weather, climate systems and changes, as well as from the applicative fields and interdisciplinary research, particularly related to air quality and effects of weather on humans, animals and plants.
