German meteorologist and climatologist who helped found the science of microclimatology; his The Climate Near the Ground from 1950 stands as a milestone publication in the history of that subject. Another of Geiger's interests was climate classification, where he helped Köppen develop and extend his famous systemization. With Köppen he was co-editor of the ambitious Handbuch der Klimatologie project that was never completed (but still ran to five volumes during the 1930s).
He died 22 January 1981.
