TRR 181 is a Collaborative Research Project between the Universität Hamburg and the University of Bremen funded by Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) for initially eight years with possible extension for four years. Further participating institutions are the Alfred Wegener Institute Bremerhaven, Constructor University in Bremen, Max Planck Institute for Meteorology in Hamburg, Helmholtz-Zentrum Hereon in Geesthacht, Leibniz Institute for Baltic Sea Research Warnemünde, Catholic University of Eichstätt-Ingolstadt, Hamburg University of Technology, Goethe University Frankfurt, and Leibniz Institute of Atmospheric Physics in Kühlungsborn.

Physical oceanographers, meteorologists and applied mathematician work together in the project

1. to understand the energy transfers between the different dynamical regimes - smallscale turbulence, internal gravity waves and geostrophically balanced motion - in both atmosphere and ocean,

2. to develop, to test, and to implement new and consistent parameterisations in models, and

3. to develop mathematical and numerical methods featuring consistent energetics.

    We have applied for funding to extend our research project from July 2024 until June 2028. We will soon start posting job advertisements for ca. 30 PhD and Postdoc positions with the starting date ranging from 1 July 2024 to 1 January 2025. So keep an eye on this page for updates!
