My present research interests are in climate dynamics and dynamic meteorology. Most of the studies I have been involved in are associated with numerical simulations of the atmosphere. Most of these simulations are so-called sensitivity experiments where we use models to study the impact of certain processes or (sea)surface properties on the climate.

Research topics I have been involved in:

  • Parameterisation of cloud processes in numerical models
  • Mesoscale atmospheric dynamics
  • Climate modeling and climate analysis
  • Large-scale atmosphere ocean interaction 
  • Large-scale variability and storm-tracks

 

 

Since 1998 I have lectured and the following courses at the Gepopysical Institute:

 

GFF001 - Introduction to Meteorology and Oceanography 

GEOF212 - Physical Climatology 

GEOF310 - Turbulence in the atmospheric- and oceanic mixed/boundary layer

GEOF110 - Introduction to dynamics in Meteorology and Oceanography

GEOF326 - Atmospheric dynamics

GEOF329 - Local and Micro Meteorology

GEOF327 - The Atmospheric General Circulation
