Welcome to the Laboratory for Climatology and Remote Sensing
The LCRS is a working group within the Faculty of Geography at the University of Marburg. Research is done in the fields of climatology, remote sensing and numerical modelling, with a focus on atmospheric and boundary layer climatology, climate-ecology and climate change impact assessment.
Main research activities at the LCRS are:
- Climatological remote sensing
- Simulation of atmosphere and ecosystem processes
- Climate change impact research
To find out more about our research please have a look at the projects and facilities section on this page.
