Within the scope of my thesis, my research focus lies on the physics of estuaries. These are transitional water bodies such as river mouths, where terrestrial freshwater mixes with marine saltwater. My specialty are the processes that drive this mixing of fresh and salty water masses as well as the estuarine circulation in both, Euclidian and salinity space. To this end, I create and apply realistic and idealised numerical simulations of coastal water bodies that run with the coastal ocean model GETM.
