Eigil Kaas

Eigil Kaas is Professor at the Niels Bohr Institute at University of Copenhagen, and researcher at the National Centre for Climate Research (NCKF) at the Danish Meteorological Institute. 

Throughout many years, Eigil has trained Danish meteorologists, geophysicists and climate physicists to be equipped to understand meteorological and climate physical processes and phenomena, including, of course, the physics behind natural climate variability and the anthropogenic climate changes we are facing now. 

His scientific focus areas are climate research with focus on climate dynamics/physics, meteorology and numerical methods used in atmospheric models for climate and numerical weather prediction (NWP). Recently also nowcasting, usage of crowd sourced data in NWP and AI methods have been focal areas. A short CV can be found here.

Eigil will give the lecture: The state of the climate on Earth
