Visit to the Danish Meteorological Institute (DMI)

Registration will be possible on-site at the information and registration desk.

Date & time: Tuesday and Wednesday, Meeting at 16:00. A member of the Danish Meteorological Society will wait and accompany the group to the DMI. The tour will last from 17:00 to 19:00.

Location & costs: Participants will meet in the registration area of the conference venue and will be guided to the DMI. The tour is free of charge, but a valid public transportation ticket is required.

DMI is the Danish national weather service. As such DMI is responsible for meteorological observations, forecasting and warnings for civilians, aviation, ship traffic, the military, roads, chemical and nuclear releases, and the sea. For the sea, accurate forecasts of storm surges from the North Sea and the Baltic Sea are particularly important for the narrow fjords and belts of Denmark. For ship traffic, the ice service that monitors the ice conditions around Greenland is a particular focus. In recent decades regional climate modelling has become an ever increasing focus, with an emphasis on high-resolution climate modelling for Denmark and Greenland.

Bicycle tour through Copenhagen

Eigil Kaas from the Niels Bohr Institute, Univ. of Copenhagen, is offering a guided tour through the historical parts of Copenhagen.

You will enjoy various pieces of art and buildings including the Royal Opera, Christiansborg (the parliament) and the Royal Palace. If time permits we will also visit parts of the “experimental city” Christiana. There will furthermore be time to discuss the traffic policy in Copenhagen (as you will learn the amount of bikes on the bike-lanes is substantial).
