Laboratory for Clouds and Precipitation Exploration

ABC/J Competence Centre

The CPEX-LAB brings together cloud and precipitation-related expertise from the fields of meteorology, remote sensing, applied mathematics, engineering and computer science. The focus is on scientific and technical challenges in observing and understanding clouds and precipitation.


By coordinating research activities, the CPEX-LAB contributes to improved predictions (e.g. warning of extreme precipitation and wind gusts, energy meteorological parameters for the use of renewable energies).
