IRTG Travel Grants Programme

PhD researcher Alexander Mchedlishvili joined AWI Potsdam for a research stay

During my brief stay at AWI Potsdam I worked closely with Wolfgang Dorn on the integration of sea iceatmosphere ridge form drag into the coupled sea ice-atmosphere-ocean model HIRHAM-NAOSIM. There I had meetings with Wolfgang and Annette Rinke on what equations and methods to use to for the implementation. Thanks to this research stay, I am now able to run the model myself thanks to Wolfgang’s instructions and the parameterisation implementation is underway. I thoroughly enjoyed the closer cooperation and supervision of both Wolfgang and Annette and think this has definitely helped further my project.
