Aims and Scope

Meteorologische Zeitschrift (originally founded in 1884) is the joint open access journal of the meteorological societies of Austria, Germany and Switzerland. It accepts high-quality, English language, double peer-reviewed manuscripts on all aspects of observational, theoretical and computational research on the entire field of meteorology and atmospheric physics, including climatology. Manuscripts from applied sectors such as, e.g., Environmental Meteorology or Energy Meteorology are particularly welcome. Meteorologische Zeitschrift represents a natural forum for the meteorological community of Central Europe and worldwide.
