Congratulations!Anju Sathyanarayanan successfully defended her doctoral thesis
14 September 2020
We are proud to announce the successful disputation of our SICSS member Anju Sathyanarayanan.
Her dissertation "Understanding projected salinity changes in the global ocean of the MPI-Earth System Model under a global warming scenario" was supervised by Prof Dr. Detlef Stammer and Dr. Armin Köhl.
The primary objective of Anju's PhD study was to distinguish between salinity changes resulting from warming, freshwater flux and wind-stress changes and to use this information to investigate mechanisms that are expected to drive future changes.
An assessment of the impact of the salinity changes on the general circulation requires to understand the mechanisms driving these changes, their attribution to changing surface fluxes, but also on the mechanisms influencing the rest of the physical ocean. Anju investigated salinity change mechanisms that are simulated under strong climate change forcing conditions. This study was based on the output of the Max Planck Institute Earth System Model (MPI-ESM) Medium and High Resolution runs.
Anju is a member of the Institute for Oceanography at Universität Hamburg.
