sub-tropical moisture transport to Norway
This is my personal homepage updated until 2014 when I moved to the Geophysical Institute, University of Bergen, Norway. I am in the process of moving this page to my new University. Under the tab "Research" I describe some examples of my work interests with corresponding references.

Also at GFI in Bergen, one of my major interests is on gaining a better understanding of the physical processes in the atmospheric branch of the hydological cycle. Further research interest includes also atmospheric transport processes and the representation of physical processes in numerical weather prediction models.

Much of my work is related to understanding atmospheric water transport in the troposphere. The source regions of precipitation and water vapour are an important ingredient of precipitation extremes. But they are also key for understanding many archives of the past climate, such as ice cores and stalagmites. Taking a weather systems perspective, my aim is to understand how individual weather events form such climatic information.
