Annu Panwar


Education:

  • 2017- Present : PhD at Max Planck Institute for Biogeochemistry, Jena, Germany
  • 2014-2016 : Post graduation in Atmosphere and Ocean Science at Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Bhubaneswar, India
  • 2011-2014 : Graduation in Physics, Mathematics and Geology at D.B.S (PG) College, Dehradun, India


Research Interests:

Being from a multidisciplinary academic background I developed my interest in processes and interactions within the Earth system among which land-atmosphere interaction is fascinating. My Ph.D. research work is focussed on understanding the relationship between surface meteorological variables, specially temperatures and surface energy balance partitioning at sub-daily to diurnal scale. For instance,

  • How the growth in boundary layer explains the weaker evaporative cooling of air temperature?
  • How the surface and air temperautre respond to evaporative cooling in different vegetation types?
  • Analysing and quantifying the global patterns in coupling of surface and air temperature


In order to find answers to these interesting questions, I use local and global data, for example, FLUXNET and ERA5, and develope simplified model and expressions based on surface energy balance.

For my research stay I worked on evaporation and boundary layer model in collaboration with Boston University
I use MATLAB, CDO and R programming language for analysing and visualising the data
