NLC camera Greifswald

In collaboration with the Institute of Atmospheric Physics (IAP) at Kühlungsborn, the Institute of Physics operates a cloud camera on the roof of the Physics Building. The main purpose of the camera is to study Noctilucent Clouds (clouds), i.e. optically thin ice clouds that occur during the summer months at mid and high latitudes at altitudes of about 82 km. However, the camera also operates during the day and outside the NLC season and the pictures on this webpage are updated every few minutes.
