Divisions

Climate and Environmental Physics division (KUP)

The Climate and Environmental Physics division (KUP) is primarily involved in the investigation of climate change over the past 800,000 years and in making predictions for future behaviour of the Earth’s climate. The division has received world-wide attention as a result of participation in the International Panel for Climate Change.

Laboratory for High Energy Physics (LHEP)

The Laboratory for High Energy Physics (LHEP) is involved large experiments to determine fundamental properties of matter. The division participates extensively in the Large Hadron Collider experiments and is involved in studies of neutrinos and the hunt for Dark Matter.

The Space Research and Planetology division (WP)

The Space Research and Planetology division (WP) is involved in the experimental and theoretical investigation of our Solar System and extra-solar planets. The division participates in NASA, ESA, and Roscosmos spacecraft missions through the provision of instruments for both remote-sensing and in situ mass spectrometry.
