This Group offers Meteorology and Physical oceanography courses at MSc and PhD (just for Meteorology) levels. The meteorological research conducted at macro, meso, and micro scales includes studies on atmospheric dynamics, clouds formation and rain, hail, and the atmospheric boundary layers (where inversion usually causes serious air pollution). Such variables affect the environment, agriculture, construction and industrial plans, water, transportation, army issues, and many other aspects of human life.
The four research sections that have close collaboration with this Group include Ozone and Air Pollution Studies, Solar Physics and Astronomy, Meteorology, and Ionosphere.
The most important laboratories and equipment available to the Space Physics Groups are as follows:
- The Synoptic Meteorological Observatory
- The Automatic Meteorological Observatory
- The Laboratory of Geophysical Fluids Dynamics
- The Meteorological Laboratory
- The Micro-laboratory for the physics of clouds and rain
- A Micro-Meteorology Observational Tower
- A SODAR Instrument (to study the atmospheric boundary layer)
