Institution description The Institute of Environmental Research and Sustainable Development (IERSD) is one of the five institutes that constitute the National Observatory of Athens (NOA), the oldest research center in Greece (the first meteorological observations began in 1846). The Institute for Meteorology and Climate Research (IMK) consists of four divisions, two of which are jointly operated by the Campus South (former University of Karlsruhe) and the Campus North (former Karlsruhe Research Centre). They work on atmospheric processes of the troposphere (IMK- TRO) as well as of atmospheric trace gases and remote sensing (IMK-ASF). A third division, the Atmospheric Aerosol Research (IMK-AAF) is jointly operated with the Institut für Umweltphysik of the University of Heidelberg. Since January 2002 the Institute of the Research of the Atmospheric Environment, former part of the Fraunhofer Gesellschaft, has become the fourth division of the IMK as IMK-IFU. The Institute is leading the newly founded KIT Center "Climate and the Environment" and contributes significantly to the program "Atmosphere and Climate" of the Helmholtz Association in the research field "Earth and Environment". The teachers of the university offer courses for Meteorology (bachelor, master and diploma).
