About the Organisation

The Max Planck Society (MPG) is Germany's most successful research organization established in 1948. The 83 Max Planck Institutes and facilities (as of 2017) conduct basic research in the service of the general public in the natural sciences, life sciences, social sciences, and the humanities. Continuous renewal in the institutional structure preserves the scope the Max Planck Society needs to react quickly to pioneering scientific developments. The MPG contributes to the project with the institute for meteorology.
Max Planck Institute for Meteorology (MPI-M, is dedicated to fundamental climate research. The overall mission of MPI-M is to understand how chemical, physical, and biological processes, as well as human behavior contribute to the dynamics of the Earth system, and specifically how they relate to global climate changes. The institute comprises three departments: The Atmosphere in the Earth System; The Land in the Earth System and The Ocean in the Earth System and hosts independent research groups focused on Fire in the Earth System, Forest Management in the Earth System, Sea Ice in the Earth System, Stratosphere and Climate as well as Turbulent Mixing Processes in the Earth System.
