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

Closing Date

29th October 2021

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.


Essential Skills:

  • Strong mathematical background
  • Excellent oral and written communication skills
  • High-level programming experience in Matlab, Python or equivalent
  • Good understanding of dynamical oceanography

Desirable Skills:

  • Experience working in a Unix environment
  • Experience working in a high performance computing environment
  • Ability to produce high quality graphics to illustrate results
