Working group "Climate Dynamics and Statistics"

Our research activities include the statistical and dynamical analysis of atmospheric processes, the statistical post-processing of weather and climate forecasts, and the detection and attribution of climate change signals. An important focus is on extreme events, their drivers and their statistical description and prediction, both in the short term and on climate time scales. In close collaboration with the "Climate Monitoring" group of Prof. Dr. Leonie Esters, we pursue an integrated view of the Earth system by bringing together observations, dynamical and stochastic process understanding, and statistical and numerical modeling to understand and predict processes in the energy, water, and carbon cycles.
