Open Day at JGU Mainz (25.03.2023)

To celebrate the World Meteorological Day on 23 March 2023, the Institute for Atmospheric Physics (IAP) at JGU in Mainz organized an open day called "Mainzer Tag der Meteorologie" on 25 March 2023. A few hundred visitors of all ages attended the event. The program offered by scientists in W2W and from IAP included radiosonde launches, insights into the use of AI for climate modeling, and presentations about climate and weather studies and research at the institute. The visitors were offered cake and there was a kids’ corner organized. The feedback was very positive.

Volkmar Wirth advertized the event in the TV program "alle Wetter!". Click here to see the video (in German, between 07:01-11:55).
