The project is a joint initiative of Angola, Botswana, Namibia, South Africa, Zambia, and Germany, responding to the challenges of global change. The objective of SASSCAL is to conduct problem-oriented research in the area of adaptation to climate change and sustainable land management, and provide evidence-based advice for decision-makers and stakeholders in southern Africa.
After working as a commercial employee for a shipyard, he studied meteorology at the Freie Universität Berlin. For his PhD studies he relocated to the Max Planck Institute for Meteorology in Hamburg. During this time he was a member of the Emmy Noether Junior Resarch Group “Cloud Climate Feedbacks“ and a student at the International Max Planck Research School on Earth System Modelling (IMPRS-ESM). For his PhD thesis Torsten analyzed the impact of inhomogeneities on non-linear cloud processes as for instance the cloud and precipitation formation in a global climate model.
