Max Planck Institute for Meteorology

Data Center Description
The Max Planck Institute for Meteorology 's major objective is
to undertake a system analysis of the Earth System dynamics with
emphasis on the Earth Climate. More specifically, aim of the
institute is to analyze the natural variability in the Earth
system, and assess how the system is affected by changes in
land-use, industrial development, urbanization, and other
human-induced perturbations. Among the tools used by MPI-Met
scientists are advanced numerical models that simulate the
behavior of the atmosphere, the ocean, the cryosphere and the
biosphere, and the interactions between these different
components of the Earth?s system.
