Hans-Ertel-Centre for Weather Research
Climate Monitoring and Diagnostics
The Climate Monitoring and Diagnostics group of the Hans-Ertel-Centre for Weather Research is a joint research group of the Universities of Bonn and Cologne dedicated to scientific advancements in the field of climate monitoring. Our research is aimed at providing basic research for the German Meteorological Service (Deutscher Wetterdienst, DWD) and to initiate and support new developments in DWD.
Specifically, we aim to improve retrospective climate observation by establishing a future-oriented monitoring system based on novel and existing regional reanalyses. A major focus lies on the exploitation of reanalysis data with respect to renewable energy applications.
