Meteorology is the study of physical and chemical processes and the resulting conditions in the atmosphere, which forms the layer of gases surrounding the Earth. Meteorological processes run in various spatial and temporal scales. Climatology is a subdiscipline of meteorology that focuses on the analysis and description of intermediate processes and states in the atmosphere (climate) and the climate system and changes to them. The most widely known area of application of meteorology is weather forecasting. However, meteorology and climatology also play a role in questions of air pollution control, settlement and land-use planning, environmental protection, agriculture and forestry, landscape ecology, and energy management. An area that is currently particularly prominent is research concerning climate change.


Disclaimer
The versions of statutes with relevance to teaching and learning provided on this page by the Department of Legal Affairs (in particular admission and selection regulations as well as subject and examination regulations) are primarily for information purposes. This means that all amendments subsequently agreed upon by the University Senate have been integrated into the respective text of the original statutes; in the case of the examination regulations for bachelor's and master's degree programmes, this generally relates to extracts of the respective examination regulations (framework examination regulations, subject-specific provisions, and appendices).
The greatest care has been taken in writing these versions. Nevertheless, it cannot be entirely ruled out that errors may have occurred. Consequently, it is solely the officially announced statutes and statute amendments that are legally binding, i.e. as published in the Amtlichen Bekanntmachungen der Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg im Breisgau [de] or, up to the year 2000, in the official gazette of the Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts.
