STEP-CHANGE: State-dependent cloud phase feedbacks: enhancing understanding and assessing global effects

Duration: Start date: 2023-03-01, End date: 2028-02-28

Call: PE10, ERC-2021-CoG

The overall objective of STEP-CHANGE is to understand and quantify feedbacks associated with cloud phase changes, including their state-dependence, for three distinct cloud regimes in the following regions: the Arctic, the Tropical deep convective region, and the Southern Hemisphere storm tracks.

EPIC: Untangling Ediacaran Paleomagnetism to Contextualize Immense Global Change

Duration: Start date: 2022-10-01, End date: 2027-09-30

Call: PE10, ERC-2021-CoG

My vision with EPIC is to investigate and identify the origin(s) of the aberrant paleomagnetic data of this age, and to use that knowledge to directly reconstruct Ediacaran-early Cambrian paleogeography for the first time. Four alternative hypotheses have been formulated to explain them: 1) rapid rotations of the entire solid Earth (true polar wander), 2) an unstable magnetic field, 3) pervasive data corruption, or 4) ultra-fast plate motion.

POLAR-4DSpace: 4DSpace: integrated study for space weather at high latitudes

Project duration: 2020-2025

Call ID: ERC-2019-CoG

This project will determine the role of auroral particle precipitations and geomagnetic activity for the development of plasma irregularities at high latitudes, and their impacts on the global navigation satellite systems.

Cosmoglobe - mapping the universe from the Milky Way to the Big Bang

Project duration: 2019-2024

Grant agreement ID: 819478

Call ID: ERC-2018-COG

This project aims to derive the world's strongest limits on, and potentially detect, inflationary gravity waves; forecast, optimize and analyze observations from the leading next-generation CMB experiments; and derive the first 3D large-scale structure maps from CO intensity mapping, potentially opening up a new window on the cosmic dawn.

Time-domain Gibbs sampling: From bits to inflationary gravitational waves

Project duration: 2018-2023

Grant agreement ID: 772253

Call ID: ERC-2017-COG

This project aims to apply a novel method to derive the world's tightest constraint on the amplitude of inflationary gravitational waves.

ALMA – The key to the Sun’s coronal heating problem

Project duration: 2016-2021

Grant agreement ID: 682462

Call ID: ERC-CoG-2015

The aim is to utilize the first observations of the Sun with the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA), which promises significant steps towards understanding the outer layers of the solar atmosphere with possible contributions to solving the coronal heating problem.


Walter Salzburger

An integrative approach towards the understanding of an adaptive radiation of East African cichlid fishes 

Project duration: 2014-2019

Grant agreement ID: 617585

Call ID: ERC-2013-CoG

This project offers the unique opportunity to test recent theory and data-based predictions on speciation and adaptive radiation within an entire biological system – in this case the adaptive radiation of cichlid fishes in Lake Tanganyika.
