Interests

My research focuses on small-scale phenomenons in the atmospheric boundary layer close to the Earth's surface. In particular, I am interested in processes that are related to the interaction between the land surface and the surface layer - the lowest part of the boundary layer. My main research tool is the large-eddy simulation model PALM. The work includes theoretical approaches, numerical modeling and parameterization of different land surfaces such as natural landscapes, water surface, and urban built-up area, as well as turbulence-resolving simulations.


Current research topics are:

  • The turbulent structure of nocturnal radiation fog
  • Application and evaluation of Monin-Obukhov similarity theory in the surface layer
  • Effects of land-surface heterogeneity on the boundary layer
  • Representation of different land surface types in large-eddy simulation models
  • Using large-eddy simulations as operational forecasting tool of high-risk weather at airports
