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. Study of meteorology on the bachelor and master levels is part of the general Physics study program (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 on the bachelor and master levels is part of the general Physics study program. The basic objective 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. First-level graduates will be able to independently solve problems and tasks in certain fields of meteorology and geophysics. The second stage builds upon the knowledge and skills of the first stage, so a second-level graduate is also capable of challenging work in numerical modeling of events in the atmosphere, or, for example in the weather analysis and forecasting.
