About Thorsten Mauritsen

My research focus is to understand the susceptibility of the climate system to perturbations, such as a change in atmospheric CO2. This includes feedback mechanisms that either amplify or dampen the global mean temperature response, changes in the global mean hydrological cycle and the ubiquitous Arctic amplification of climate change. I also participate in the development of the ICON climate model.
