As an ocean physicist, Jörn works to better understand the ocean’s circulation and how it regulates the climate on earth. By probing the ocean with in situ and satellite observations, developing simplified dynamical models, and deploying detailed numerical simulations, he aims to extract the laws that govern this turbulent fluid.
