5km ICON Dyamond global simulation

Two animations show the temporal evolution of the following variables: cloud water, ice, rain, snow and graupel - and vertically integrated water vapor, respectively, for a 40-day 5km ICON Dyamond simulation.

A tropical-like cyclone in the Mediterranean Sea

The video shows a 3-D representation of the cyclone using a volumetric rendering of clouds, obtained as sum of cloud water and cloud ice, followed by streamlines coloured according to windspeed.

Simulation of Cyclone Christian and Typhoon Haiyan

A new global atmospheric climate simulation for the past 67 years was performed with the state-of-the-art general circulation model ECHAM6 ...

Simulation of a Tropical Cyclone in an Atmospheric General Circulation Model

The realistic simulation of tropical cyclones in global climate models is still a challenge. The grids of such models typically have a mesh size of more than 50km. The core of a tropical cyclone ...

Ever changing: the Atmosphere’s Temperature

The atmosphere is in perpetual motion. Due to the ever-changing amount of sunlight entering the atmosphere between day and night, summer and winter, air circulation is always kept going. This movement results from the fact that ...
