"Dynamic Earth" colloquium at IAP

Final colloquium highlighting the research and results of DFG Priority Project 1788

Kühlungsborn, 02 June 2022

The "DynamicEarth” program completed its 7 successful years in 2022 after its conception in 2015. The Final Colloquium was held on 31st May - 2nd June 2022 at the Leibniz Institute of Atmospheric Physics in Kühlungsborn.

The program, funded by DFG, was a successful collaboration with a diversified group of researchers with an established international research framework for gravity, geomagnetism, and space and atmospheric sciences to tackle their intra disciplinary questions. Associated projects have exploited the satellite data and addressed studies based on ground based observations and simulations. The colloquium provided the whole SPP team and the evaluation committee a chance to review the research conducted, results obtained and new science questions emerged during this dynamic journey around the earth.


The Final Colloquium was open to all interested researchers and scientists and witnessed the participation both in person and online. The following invited speakers delivered the distinguished keynotes:

  • Anja Strømme (ESA ESRIN, Italy, Online): Swarm Status after almost 9 years in orbit and the way forward”
  • Astrid Maute (NCAR Boulder, USA): Vertical coupling in the atmosphere ionosphere system: progress and questions”
  • Nicola Gillet (University of Grenoble, France): Geomagnetic observations reveal hydro magnetic waves in Earth's core”
  • Jesper Gjerloev (JHU APL, USA): “The Earth Space electrical current circuit why this fascinating, dynamic and structured system keeps its secrets”

The Leibniz-Institute of Atmospheric Physics is one of the German main centers for Middle Atmosphere research and The Leibniz-Institute is one of the German main centers for Middle Atmosphere research and maintains active cooperations with several international research organizations. The institute is located near the Baltic Sea resort Kühlungsborn, owns a separate site on the island Rügen, and is a major partner of the ALOMAR observatory in northern Norway. As associated institute of the Rostock University it is part of the teaching programme in physics. A total of about 90 persons is employed at IAP. The institute realizes an equal-opportunity and family-friendly human resource policy and is certified with the audit "berufundfamilie"  ('career and family').
