Job type Research
Research Region 85
Skills/Expertise I am interested in general circulation of the oceans, especially the thermohaline circulation, and flow forced by hydrothermal or geothermal sources. Current research deals with Southern Ocean overturning - the Deacon Cell - and its relation to air-sea fluxes and eddy transport mechanisms. Ongoing projects include the direct observation of circulation in the eastern North Atlantic Ocean with subsurface floats. Studies of transport mechanisms for mass, heat and salt are the fundamental motivation for these experiments and studies.
