Investigating Southern Ocean meridional fluxes from ARGO within the framework of a time-varying Gravest Empirical Mode climatology of watermass properties

Closing Date

21st February 2020*

Applicants should contact the primary supervisor Nathan Bindoff and submit their Expression of Interest (EOI) and Application as soon as possible.

The Research Project

This project will develop a new Gravest Empirical Model climatology of physical and biogeochemical watermass properties and use it to examine long-term change in Antarctic Circumpolar Fronts, and small-scale variability in Southern Ocean watermasses.
