PhD fellowship on atmospheric gravity waves by airborne remote sensing
Forschungszentrum Jülich is one of the large interdisciplinary research institutions in Europe.
The Institute of Energy and Climate Research, Stratosphere (IEK-7) combines remote sensing, in situ measurements
and modelling for process studies on the Earth’s middle atmosphere with a focus on the upper troposphere / lower stratosphere (UTLS). The institute develops novel instruments for operation on research aircraft and leads national and international aircraft campaigns.
As part of the HITEC PhD scholarship program there is a project on atmospheric
gravity waves explored with the German research aircraft HALO. Winning
the scholarship, the PhD candidate would participate in a measurement
campaign from South America, contribute to the campaign flight planning
and the measurement operations of the infrared limb imager GLORIA,
retrieve 3D distributions of the observed wave field and interpret the
findings with the help of modelling. More information can
