The Max Planck Institute for Meteorology (Max-Planck-Institut für Meteorologie, MPI-M) is an internationally renowned institute for climate research. Its mission is to understand Earth's changing climate. Founded in 1975, it is operated by the Max Planck Society and based in Hamburg's district of Eimsbüttel.

The MPI-M comprises three departments and, together with the University of Hamburg, an international PhD programme.


  • Atmosphere in the Earth System
  • Land in the Earth System
  • Ocean in the Earth System

International Max Planck Research School[edit]

The Max Planck Institute for Meteorology (MPI-M) and the Universität Hamburg (UHH) jointly run the International Max Planck Research School on Earth System Modelling (IMPRS-ESM) to promote high-quality doctoral research into the Earth’s climate system.  The School conducts research in four primary research areas: atmosphere, land, ocean, and the human dimension.[2]
