Meteorologentagung DACH 2016

14 - 18 March 2016, Berlin, Germany


The DACH 2016 took place at the Freie Universität Berlin. Erik gave his talk in the session about climate variability. He got a lot of useful feedback on his research ideas and results. Erik likes to express his gratefulness regarding the GSGS grant-selection-committee for their financial support to enable him to participate at this conference. Not to forget, Erik thanks Karin Boessenkool very much, who represents and coordinates the GSGS and provided plenty of useful information concerning the GSGS application procedures.
The DACH is a great opportunity to meet meteorologists, climatologists and oceanographers from all over Germany, Switzerland and Austria. Taking part in sessions of all different kind of meteorological research topics Erik learned about cutting edge science and he got an impressive overview of ongoing research.
The GSGS travel grant allowed him to talk to the experts and senior scientists of various fields as well as establishing contacts to other PhD students in related research areas. Erik appreciates that participating at the DACH offers a forum to discuss on paleo- and climate-research, as well as regional climate modeling and statistics.
