Information about Prof. Dr. Nils Moosdorf

Portrait

Nils Moosdorf studied Geology at RWTH Aachen University. He finished his Ph.D. at the University of Hamburg in 2010 focusing global biogeochemical cycles. Since 2014 he led a junior research group on “Submarine groundwater discharge” at the Leibniz Centre for Tropical Marine Research (ZMT) in Bremen. The group got tenured with his tenure as jointly called professor at Kiel University and still does research on the interaction of groundwater and the ocean at tropical coasts.

Research questions

Nils‘ research assess the role of groundwater in the Earth System. It encompasses the global scale, but also local scale analyses of complexities and variability that need to be understood to represent them at large scales. Central research questions are::

  • Which are the couplings of groundwater and ocean in the Earth System?
  • Which interactions exist between humans, groundwater and ocean at urban tropical coasts?
  • How can offshore groundwater resources contribute to a sustainable water supply?
