PhD topic

  • Multi-variate Analysis of Land-Atmosphere Interactions in a Changing Climate
    In my PhD research I aim to find the (range of) critical soil moisture content(s) which corresponds to the transitional regime using various data products, like ESA CCI soil moisture content, evapotranspiration from GLEAM and temperature from E-OBS. The transitional regime is of interest, because in the transitional regime the land controlling the atmosphere (water limited regime) switches to atmosphere controlling the land (energy limited regime) or vice-versa.

Research interests

  • Land-atmosphere interactions: Soil moisture-vegetation climate feedbacks in a changing climate
  • Multi-variate analysis: Combining data from various sources
  • Earth System Modelling
  • Time series analysis
