Marine Physics and Ocean Climate


PhD project title: New estimates of marine surface temperature change, 1850-1970 

My PhD is supported as a part of the HOSTACE project for the characterization, evaluation and uncertainty estimation of historical sea surface temperatures (SST) in the last ca. 150 years.

Research Interests: 

- Sea surface temperature

Data set development from in situ data

Statistical modelling for highly noisy data
