Research Interests

Development of Climate Prediction Systems

I am working on the development and advancement of seasonal and decadal climate prediction systems. Retrospective climate predictions of the recent past (30 to 60 years) are performed to estimate the prediction skill inherent in the systems and to be compared internationally against each other. The quality of the climate predictions is dependent on the quality of the underlying climate model, the initialization with observations and pre- and postprocessing of the climate predictions. During my past employments, I have contributed to all of these points. Currently, I am participating in the development of the new climate model ICON-ESM. Furthermore, I am studying the effect of external forcing data (e.g. greenhouse gases, aerosols, etc.) on climate predictions. For this purpose, large ensembles of so-called “Single Forcing” simulations are performed and analyzed within the EU’s project ASPECT, aiming to improve the understanding of climate predictions and their drivers.

Impact of ocean data assimilation on climate predictions with ICON-ESM

Schematic of the data assimilation. The Ensemble Kalman Filter using PDAF assimilates once a month oceanic salinity and temperature profiles into ICON-ESM. The assimilation step is followed by a one-month ICON-ESM run with 10 ensemble members. The procedure is repeated in the next assimilation cycle. This way, the assimilation run is performed over the period 1960–2014 and provides the initial conditions for the decadal hindcast simulations.
