LMU climate kit


The scientific background and consequences of climate change can be made experimentally tangible for students with the experiments in the climate kit.

With relatively simple setups, various scientific relationships can be investigated in student experiments, from the absorption of thermal radiation by CO2, to the albedo effect, to the acidification of the oceans.

Report in the Journal of the German Physics society about the climate kit.


The climate case is produced by the Caritas workshop in Munich-Dachau and can be ordered directly there using the order form.
FLIR thermal imaging cameras can also be ordered there at special conditions via the TOPA company.
We kindly ask you not to send any order requests to the LMU.

Here we provide answers to frequently asked questions regarding the climate kit:

In the TerraX broadcast “A case for Lesch and Steffens - the truth about the lie” the experiment on the absorption of thermal radiation by CO2 was shown (from min. 37:30). We have compiled a detailed description and scientific background to this experiment here.
