Interactions of Atmosphere-Ocean and Land in Regional Climate System Modelling at seamless scales

I started my PhD in the group in March 2016. My research focuses on assessing the information flow and system behaviour in the regional atmosphere and ocean model COSMO-CLM/NEMO. I am also interested in assessing the interactions of ocean-atmosphere-land systems for intense mesoscale weather phenomenon. Before moving to Goethe, I worked on SST changes and its interactions with the Tropical Cyclones over Bay of Bengal with Weather Research and Forecasting model during my master’s thesis at IIT Bhubaneswar, India.
