Climate and Meteorology is a discipline concerned with the study of atmosphere phenomena and focusing on climate processes, precipitation, temperature, currents, and electric discharge. It also aims at forecasting these phenomena and the changes or sequence between them. The activity in this field involves the research of climatology in terms of probing, analysing, evaluating and interpreting the meteorological data with the purpose of forecasting the weather and specific climatic conditions in the different geographical areas of the world. It is also preoccupied with the development of new meteorological theories and the improvement of existing ones, with the improvement of meteorological methods, techniques and instruments.
As a meteorologist you can practice your profession in government agencies, private consulting and research services, utilities and radio and television stations. A career in meteorological research can prove to be a very exciting endeavour as it can take the practitioner in some of the most unexplored and unknown places on Earth.
The interdisciplinary Master`s program "IntegratedClimate System Sciences" is designed to meet the urgent need for experts with profound knowledge of the climate system. The program combines climate system sciences, such as meteorology, physical oceanography and biogeochemistry, and social and economic sciences as well as peace and conflict research.
Bei dem Masterstudiengang Meteorologie handelt sich um einen disziplinär ausgerichteten, stärker forschungsorientierten Studiengang, der auf dem vorherigen Bachelorstudiengang konsekutiv aufbaut.
This cross-disciplinary course (taught in partnership with the Departments of Materials and Mineral Resources in the School of Mechanical Materials and Manufacturing Engineering) blends archaeology and science in the investigation of ancient materials and pyrotechnologies.
Understanding and managing environment, striving for sustainable development. Since the Earth Summit in Rio in 1992, people realized to what extent the environment problem would affect all behaviours in the future ... since then, there is a constantly growing demand for this new component in all economic activities.
Climate-related research is highly relevant for society, scientifically interesting and challenging. Human-induced global climate change has grown into a sense of urgency over the last decades.

The Institut für Meereskunde at University Hamburg offers a master degree (M.Sc.) in Physical Oceanography. The research oriented 4 semester course is directed to students with B.Sc. degree in physical oceanography, meteorology, geophysics, physics or equivalent and provides profound knowledge on the physics of the ocean and its role in the climate system. Students will be educated and prepared for their future research in physical oceanographic or other climate sciences. Furthermore, students are trained to the ability to autonomously implement and broaden scientific findings, methods and skills.
The MSc Climate Change and International Development degree has been designed to meet the career needs of people working in international development and climate change policy and practice.
Weather and climate are integral parts of the Earth system. The monitoring of meteorological variables, together with the knowledge and modelling of underlying processes, are key to understanding our interaction with the natural environment.
We can supervise MPhil projects in topics across our main areas of research, which are: marine, terrestrial, water, energy, transport, food, products and processes, health and environment, justice and governance, and urban and rural economy. Depending on your chosen topic, your research may include industrial placements or time at other universities in Europe or other continents.
Graduates of this programme are well equipped for subsequent studies in a relevant PhD programme and/or for employment in food industry in TS, agribusiness in TS, international environmental management agencies etc.
Climate change is a growing issue for policy makers in all areas of government, at international, national and subnational levels, as well as for financial, organisational and environmental managers, and experts in private and non profit making organisations.
