Doctor Amelie Meyer is an ARC DECRA Fellow at the Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies. Amelie is passionate about climate variability, polar science, and ocean circulation. A physical oceanographer, Amelie works on ocean and climate system interactions in polar regions and impacts on the marine system as a whole. She is a Chief Investigator in the ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes. Amelie is a strong advocate for science communication and outreach.

Biography

Amelie completed an undergraduate and Masters in Oceanography at the National Oceanography Centre (UK). In 2014, Amelie graduated with a PhD in Physical Oceanography at the University of Tasmania (Australia). Amelie Meyer then worked as a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Norwegian Polar Institute in Tromsø (Norway). She joined the ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes in 2018 as a Research Associate and started an ARC Discovery Early Career Research Fellowship on ocean and sea ice in 2021.

Research Themes

Amelie’s research aligns to the University’s research theme of Marine, Antarctic and Maritime. Her research focusses on physical oceanography, ocean dynamics and ocean and sea ice interactions.

Collaboration

  • ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes. A collaboration across the University of New South Wales, Monash University, the University of Melbourne, Australian National University, and the University of Tasmania.
  • N-ICE2015 expedition: Investigating the how the rapid shift in the Arctic sea ice regime from older to younger and thinner ice is affecting energy fluxes, sea ice dynamics and ice associated ecosystems. Led by the Norwegian polar Institute in 2015, it involved many international research institutes.

Grants & Funding

In 2019, Amelie Meyer was successful with obtaining a Discovery Early Career Researcher Award (DECRA) from the Australian Research Council. Titled ‘Ocean mixing under Antarctic sea ice: a missing climate link’, the project will run from 2020 onwards.

This interdisciplinary project aims to solve the puzzle of Antarctic sea ice, by assessing the ocean's role using key observations collected with state-of-the-art technology. Expected outcomes include a better understanding of why Antarctic sea ice is changing, impacts on sea ice ecosystems, and improved predictions of future changes. This project addresses knowledge gaps identified by the global climate community.

It will strategically position Australia with new expertise and essential context to understand changing dynamics in a region that regulates global weather and climate.

Ocean mixing under Antarctic sea ice: a missing climate link (2020 - 2022)$415,266
Description
The 2016 sudden decline of Antarctic sea ice after decades of growth took the research community by surprise. Leveraging international collaborations, this interdisciplinary project aims to solve the puzzle of Antarctic sea ice, by assessing the ocean's role using key observations collected with state-of-the-art technology. Expected outcomes include a better understanding of why Antarctic sea ice is changing, impacts on sea ice ecosystems, and improved predictions of future changes. This project addresses knowledge gaps identified by the global climate community. It will strategically position Australia with new expertise and essential context to understand changing dynamics in a region that regulates global weather and climate.

Description
We will address the formidable challenge of understanding and predicting climate extremes for Australia. Via acritical mass of researchers, new data, innovative modelling, collaboration, a graduate program, and early careerresearcher mentoring we will transform Australias capacity to predict climate extremes. Annually, climateextremes now cost Australia up to $4 billion but may intensify over the coming decades. Our blue-sky researchwill focus on discovery of processes that explain the behaviour of present and future climate extremes. Our impactand legacy will be assured via partnerships with key sectors of the Australian economy and discoveries thatenable evidence-based planning for extremes that will enhance national resilience.
