Purpose of Laboratory
The main goal of the Sustainable Energy and Climate Systems Laboratory is to provide an environment where, primarily, undergraduate students in the Department of Meteorological Engineering can conduct experiments. In addition, energy and climate issues are in-common research areas of meteorological engineering. Supporting graduate research on these subjects is one of the other aims of the laboratory. In this laboratory, it is aimed to conduct experiments related to both energy and atmosphere.
Objective of Laboratory
To investigate the physical processes taking place in the atmosphere, to simulate atmospheric processes with experiment, to give students the awareness and experience of experiment, to discuss the effect of solar radiation in atmospheric processes and its effect on electricity production, to simulate the main factors in climate in a real laboratory environment, to raise awareness about atmospheric events and to contribute to national-international experimental research.
Research and Application Fields
Atmospheric circulation, renewable energy sources, photovoltaic systems, climate studies.
