Institutional framework of the Laboratory

The Laboratory of Atmospheric Physics of the University of Patras (LAPUP) was founded in 1968. The first Director of LAPUP was Professor Dimitrios Ilias (1971 – 1989).

Its activities include teaching and research in the topics of Atmospheric Physics, Meteorology, Climatology and Environmental Physics.

The members of LAPUP teach mainly undergraduate and graduate courses related to Energy and Environment at the Physics Department and to the Interdisciplinary Graduate Program of Environmental Sciences of the School of Science.

The activities of LAPUP include participation in international and national research programs but also services related to Atmospheric Physics, Meteorology and Climatology.
