Research Interests

The atmosphere and the ocean reveal not only vigorous time-mean circulations on planetary and basin-wide scales but also smaller-scale variations related to storms, convective events, meso-scale and sub-mesoscale eddies and internal waves. One of the main characteristics of these geophysical fluids  is hence the coexistence of motions on a vast range of scales and the resulting lack of any spatial or temporal spectral gaps. How do motions on various scales interact with each other? More importantly, how do small-scale motions, which are numerous, ubiquitous, and often energetic, affect the behavior of large-scale circulations and the responses of large-scale circulations to changes in external forcing factors? My recent research investigates these questions following various routes listed below:

  • Climate response problem with focus on energetics responses to changes in GHG forcing (How do the atmospheric energetics, e.g. in form of  Lorenz energy cycle, change in a warming climate?) 
  • Application of concepts of statistical mechanics to climate problems (Applying fluctuation-dissipation thoery to investigate the extent to which subgrid-scale fluctuations alter the climate response in a warming world)
  • High-resolution climate modeling with the goal to examine the extent to which the response of large-scale circulations, such as the Atlantic Overturning Circulation, is altered by resolving energetic small-scale components, such as oceanic mesoscale eddies (within the national consortium project STORM and the EU H2020 project PRIMAVERA)
  • Ocean energetics (oceanic Lorenz cycle, the role of internal waves for ocean energetics within DFG Collaborative Research Center TRR181)
