The Alfred Wegener Institute Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research (AWI) is a member of the Helmholtz Association (HGF) and funded by federal and state government. AWI focuses on polar and marine research in a variety of disciplines such as biology, oceanography, geology, geochemistry and geophysics thus allowing multidisciplinary approaches to scientific goals.
Physical Oceanographer (m/f/d)
· combine the observations in the bottom water plume with time series in - the source areas of dense waters and with time series representing bottom water export properties downstream.
· subsequently study the along-stream connectivity of the interannual to decadal changes in the properties of the dense water by following property anomalies (density, transport, heat and salt anomalies) along the continental slope from the source regions to the export gateways.
· decipher whether changes in the export properties (e.g. in Orkney Passage) are related to changes in source water properties (possibly driven by disintegration of Larsen C ice shelf, slope front position, etc.) or due to changes in the modification processes (e.g. warming of ambient waters, changes in the wind field
· lead and contribute to publications of your results in peer-reviewed journals
