T. (Thore) Kausch
I am a PhD candidate at the department of Geoscience and Remote Sensing under the supervision of Stef Lhermitte. I did my Master degree in Geophysics as well as my Bachelor degree in Physics of the Earth System at the University of Kiel. For my Master thesis I worked on InSAR time series analysis to quantify surface displacements in space and time for a seismically active fault structure in Tibet.
Currently I’m working on modelling and remote sensing of East Antarctica's surface mass balance variability within the Mass2Ant project.
In order to do this, I will work with in-situ data from three field campaigns to the Princess Ragnhild Coast in East Antarctica as well as regional climate models (RACMO2.3) and snow models (SNOWPACK, Alpine3D). Additionally, I will use remote sensing data from Cloudsat, ALOS-PALSAR and Sentinel-1.
