Research Focus

The aim of my study is to provide a comprehensive and mechanistic understanding about freshwater fluxes over the ocean, driven by precipitation and evaporation. I am interested in the relationship between precipitation and evaporation and how anomalies of temperature and salinity in the microlayer may serve as indicator for freshwater fluxes.
