Experimental Lab

The Experimental Lab at the Climatology Department is responsible for the development of hard- and software solutions for the observation, analysis and management of atmospheric data. The experimental lab includes various components for the stationary and mobile measurements as well as software solutions for data management as well as data analysis for the urban climate observatory Berlin ( Link UCO ) and for experimental studies in research projects and courses.

Data management

Comparative measurements are carried out in field experiments or in the climatic chamber of the Institute of Ecology for sensor calibration and data quality control. Database systems are used for data management in order to document the workflow from raw data to pre-processing, import, calibration and filtering of data.

The BIOMET station is used for human-biometeorological studies. With three radiation balance sensors (Kipp & Zonen, CNR4), short- and long-wave radiation flux densities from six directions are measured in order to derive mean radiation temperature. The BIOMET station can be used stationary or mobile observations.

The makerspace of the Chair of Climatology is used for the development, production and application of measurement systems with low-cost sensors and microcontrollers for experimental studies in research projects and courses.
