This position is part of a joint project with the Mathematics Institute of the University of Potsdam. Data-based models (reconstructions) of the past geomagnetic field are powerful tools to study the geodynamo process generating the Earth’s magnetic field or to estimate the past shielding against solar wind and galactic cosmic rays. Recently, data assimilation techniques have been employed in a novel mathematical framework to construct such models. The aim of the project is to extend this framework to incorporate temporally correlated paleomagnetic sediment core records. A particular focus lies on the quantification of uncertainties resulting from the dating process.
The project, led by Prof. Matthias Holschneider (University of Potsdam) and Dr. Monika Korte (GFZ), will also include a post-doctoral researcher, and the two project scientists are expected to collaborate closely at both institutes.
