The Leibniz Institute for Atmospheric Physics at the University of Rostock (IAP) was founded in January 1992. In addition to the facilities in Kühlungsborn, the institute operates a branch in Juliusruh on the island of Rügen. The IAP conducts research on the atmosphere, particularily on the mesosphere and lower thermosphere (approx. 50-200 km), as well as on the dynamic coupling between atmospheric layers at different altitudes from the troposphere to the thermosphere.
