VO - Introduction to meteorology and climatology
Fundamentals of the climate system for undergraduate students (winter semester, 2hrs). Topics: components of the climate system, general circulation of the atmosphere and of the oceans, climate variability (ENSO, NAO, Monsoon), climate change and climate policy.
VU - Physics of the climate system
Advanced course in physical climatology for graduate students (winter semester, 3hrs). Practicals: individual study of the general circulation of the atmosphere using reanalysis data and Python. Topics: climate variability, synoptic climatology, paleoclimate, climate modelling, climate change and feedbacks.
VU - The Cryosphere in the Climate System
Advanced course in glaciology for graduate students (winter semester, 3hrs, co-taught with others). Practicals: analyse automatic weather station data, compute the energy and mass balance of a glacier surface.
SE - Literature seminar glaciology / climatology
Paper discussion group for graduate students (every semester, 2hrs).
I regularly give workshops related to programming, open-source and open-science topics. Two of my recent presentations are available online:
- 31.01.2017: Getting started with Python
- 07.02.2017: xarray: multi-dimensional data analysis in Python
(if you are curious about the tool I used to generate these presentations, this blog post) explains it in a little more detail)
- Cerny, M. (master thesis)
- Drivers of recent lake level changes on the Tibetan Plateau
- Schlumpberger, M. (master thesis)
- Wet and dry spells in the Rio Santa Basin, Peruvian Andes, and connections to the large scale circulation
- Siller, M. (master thesis)
- WRF simulation of wet and dry spells in the Rio Santa Basin, Peruvian Andes
- Thorlaksson, D. (master thesis)
- Improving the ice thickness estimation module of the OGGM model
