The Chair of Environmental Meteorology was newly established in March 2022 and is part of the Institute of Landscape Architecture and Landscape Planning in the Department of Architecture, Urban Planning, Landscape Planning.

The overarching goal of research at the department is to deepen the knowledge of climate-appropriate development and design of cities and spaces through both basic and applied research in urban climatology and environmental meteorology. The interlinking of urban climatology and planning sciences plays an important role.

The main focus of the department is on the bioclimatic analysis of cities by means of measurements and numerical modeling. Various climate issues such as climate protection, climate adaptation and urban climate are to be considered in an integrated manner. Research topics are, for example, the interactions and trade-offs between different measures for a climate-friendly city or the evaluation and development of urban climatological models and tools. Among other things, an urban climate observation network is to be established in Kassel.
