Research

We investigate the variability of the large-scale extratropical circulation on sub-seasonal (10 – 60 days) time scales. In the Atlantic-European region distinct weather regimes reflect the variability on these scales. Our focus is on the physical and dynamical processes driving and governing the large-scale circulation, aspects of predictability and forecast skill, and implications for surface weather.

 

Our research can be categorized into five main topics. Klick on the topics to find out more about the individual reasearch projects:

Weather Regimes (focus on the Atlantic-European region)

Weather system dynamics and weather regimes / synoptic-scale processes

Climate modes and weather regimes / sources of sub-seasonal predictability

Forecast skill of numerical weather prediction models

Applications / societal relevance
