The 2023 Outstanding Student and PhD candidate Presentation (OSPP) Award is awarded to Marius Schlaak for the poster/PICO entitled:
Multi-decadal Satellite Gravity Mission Simulations Comparing Resolving Capabilities of a Long-term Trend in the Global Ocean Heat Content (Schlaak, M.; Pail, R.; Blazquez, A.; Meyssignac, B.; Lemoine, J.-M.)

Currently, Marius is a PhD student at the Chair for Astronomical and Physical Geodesy at the Technical University of Munich. His work focuses on multi-decadal closed-loop simulations to evaluate the retrieval performance of climate-related mass transport signals of current and future satellite missions. The emphasis thereby is on the improvements in accuracy that can be expected from future satellite missions and advanced processing strategies for hydrologic, oceanographic, and climate applications.
The poster illustrates the first steps towards the expected accuracy gain of the Mass Change and Geoscience International Constellation (MAGIC) concerning the observation of long-term trends in ocean heat content (OHC) compared to current satellite gravity missions. The respective missions are compared in their capabilities to resolve long-term trends in the mass component of the sea-level rise.
