DEPARTMENT OF METEOROLOGY AND CLIMATOLOGY EMPLOYESS RESEARCH INTERESTS

  • Climate dynamics and variability
    • contemporary climate change
    • atmospherical circulation, its variability and trends and influence on other meteorological elements in Europe and Poland;
    • downscalling methods - climate projections at regional and local scale;
    • extreme meteorological events;
    • climate modelling;
    • nonlinear processes in climate variability (application of the deterministic chaos theory);
    • time series analysis (application of various statistical techniques: wavelet analysis, Fourier method, MESA, SSA);
    • long term climate records;

  • Urban climate
    • micrometeorological studies at urban areas, in particular measurements of the energy balance and turbulent exchange of greenhouse gasses, CO2 and CH4 (open path Eddy correlation);
    • turbulence studies with scintillometer at urbanized areas;
    • measurements and statistical analysis of the singularities of the urban climate (urban heat island, urban radiation, humidity, wind field);
    • numerical modelling of the urban climate (slab models of the urban energy balance, radiation processes in urban canyon);

  • Boundary layer meteorology, micrometeorology and topoclimatology:
    • energy balance and turbulent fluxes of CO2 and CH4 at natural (Biebrza National Park), agricultural, and urbanized areas;
    • parameterizations of surface fluxes;

  • Atmospheric radioactivity - Radon (Rn-222) in the air in Lodz and rural areas:
    • meausrements of Rn-222 concentration in the atmosphere at a height of 2m above the ground;
    • meteorological conditions of radon concentration in the air layer near the groundin an urban and rural areas;
    • the impact of local and macroscale (Rn-222 transport of air masses) meteorological conditions on Rn-222 concentration levels in the lower troposphere.

  • Weather in Poland and Europe
    • extreme weather events;
    • numerical weather prediction models.

  • Human biometeorology
