Our project simply explained
Want to know what is the overall goal of our project? Would you like to understand why we combine the work of oceanographers, meteorologists and mathematicians? Watch our first video about the reason behind TRR 181 in English or German!
Overflows easily explained
What is an overflow in the ocean? Why is it important to invesitgate? Find out in our explain video. Available in English and German!
Turbulence in the Ocean easily explained
Turbulence does not only happen in the air. The ocean also has a lot of turbulent motions that influence the circulation and energy transport. Find out more in our explain video!
Mathematics in Climate Research easily explained
How can a mathematician contribute to climate sciences? Why is it important to combine the knowledge of oceanographers, meteorologists and mathematicians? We answer those question in our explain video!
Internal waves easily explained
Waves do not only exist on the ocean's surface. They are also generated in the ocean interior. Find out why our scientists observe and investigate these internal waves.
Climate Models easily explained
What exactly are climate models? How do they help us predicting the climate? We explain why scientists try to improve these models in order to ensure a better understanding of the future climate.
Eddies - vortices of the seas easily explained
Eddies are in general moving fluids and are common in the ocean and therefore also very fascinating study objects for oceanographers and meterologists. How can they help us predicting the climate? We explain what eddies - the vortices of the seas - are and why they are important for the earth´s energy cycle.
