Leibniz Institute of Atmospheric Physics at the Rostock University (IAP)
The IAP was founded in January 1992. The headquarters is located in Kühlungsborn and a branch in Juliusruh on the island of Rügen. The research topics concentrate on the terrestrial atmosphere, in particular on the dynamical coupling between various layers from the troposphere up to the lower thermosphere (approx. 100 km).
