Weather reports, climate models or rocket launches - they all need precise data from the atmosphere. Research of the different layers of the atmosphere is therefore becoming increasingly important. But how high does the atmosphere actually reach? Prof. Dr. Claudia Stolle, director of the Leibniz Institute of Atmospheric Physics, is dealing with this and other questions. On January 5, she will give her inaugural lecture at the University of Rostock and explain what makes research at the boundary to space special. For example, the middle and high atmosphere develops its own weather, which has significant effects on weather on Earth - and vice versa. "Especially at a time of growing commercial use of space by satellites, we need to better understand the connection between the atmosphere and space," she says.
The lecture is open to the public and starts at 5 p.m. at the Institute of Physics. The event can be followed via zoom.
