Postdoc in the group Airborne Measurements and UTLS Transport Processes, headed by Univ.-Prof. Dr. Peter Hoor.
Air mass exchange across the tropopause, interhemispheric differences of dynamics in the lower stratosphere
Trace gas fluxes, slope analysis, airborne measurements (WISE 2017, SouthTRAC 2019)
Research in a nutshell
I am interested in the tropopause region, where large gradients in various atmospheric quantities occur.
By using trace gas measurements and analysing correlations and fluxes I study the transport processes that govern the composition of the layers around the tropopause, the UTLS. With in-situ observations from both hemispheres, WISE data from the North Atlantic region and SouthTRAC data from South America, I investigate interhemispheric differences in these transport processes.
