I am a PhD student at university Kiel under the supervision of Dr. Johannes Karstensen and Prof. Dr. Peter Brandt. My PhD work focuses on the Atlantic meridional transport and its variability in the tropics. Generally, I am interested in large-scale ocean circulations and their role in the climate, as well as tropical ocean dynamics. The poster presents an estimation of Ekman transport and the vertical structure of the ageostrophic velocity in the tropical Atlantic from observations.
