Last year I had the chance to work with two brilliant master students, Maria Siller and Miriam Schlumpberger. They wrote about the topic of wet and dry spells in the Tropical Andes of Peru, from two different perspectives: synoptic climatology and high resolution atmospheric modelling. Together their work form a nice story and I decided to present it at the EGU conference this year. Here is what came out:

The story doesn’t end here (a further student is working on it, from yet another perspective!), and I’d really like to write a manuscript about it by the end of the year.

If you want to know more, here are the links to their theses:
