Research Groups

At ZMT, we will be building up the research group Complexity & Climate, which will focus on the self-organization of convection cloud, the emergence of clustered cloud systems, such as mesoscale convective systems and complexes, as well as tropical cyclones. In a further step, we will be studying the emergence of extreme events and the potential impact on eco and socioeconomic sysytems. A particular focus will be on tropical coasts, with high population densities and sensitive ecosystems. I further lead the Atmospheric Complexity group at the Niels Bohr Institute, Copenhagen University.
