Meteorology Research Division

Introducing meteorological section

The meteorological department, as a part of the space Physics Division for the purpose of meteorological research and the development of aeronautical education activities in the country, was established in 1981 at the Institute of Geophysics, and at the same time, ground-based meteorological activities beganThe history of meteorology training in cooperation with the World Meteorological Organization and the Meteorological Organization of Iran dates back to 1357 SHAlso, in order to increase the scientific level of researchers and technicians in the field of teaching and research, Ph.D. level in Meteorology was established since 2004This section is now one of the most active educational and research departments of the Department of Physics of the Faculty of Geophysics, in University of Tehran .

  • Holding research workshops on the sidelines of conferences


Cooperative activities:

  • Advising on Advanced Meteorological Studies with national Centers and Research Organizations
  • Collaboration in the implementation of meteorological studies and researches
  • Studying the effects of weather-related factors such as rainfall, wind, temperature and humidity in structures and construction structures of the country such as dams, bridges and power plants.
  • The study of the effects of meteorological factors on agriculture aiming the improvement of regional agriculture, by taking into account the weather forecasts and climatological predictions, such as prediction of freezing conditions
  • Timely meteorological forecasts of catastrophic and destructive events such as hail, frost, floods and severe storms
  • Use of advanced applied meteorological studies on the fertilization of clouds to address water scarcity and desertification
  • Exploiting advanced meteorological studies for the construction of domestic aircraft and rockets
  • The use of satellite imagery and computer network information for the development of meteorological research in the country
