Dispersion calculations with numerical simulation models or physical models (wind tunnel) are important devices in immission control related authorization procedures as well as in urban and regional planning processes.

The precautionary principle requires that we estimate the environmental effects of building measures or conversion of land use already prior to their realization. One aspect that must be taken into account here is the impact on regional or local climate.

Based on our prognostic mesoscale model calculations we offer the preparation of numerous data products. This service is mainly used by public authorities but can be relevant for other economic sectors as well.

From the very beginning we have considered our meteorological consulting activities to be an important link between research and practical use. That is why we sustain close contacts to research centres and work in various guideline boards as well.
