Sea ice Marginal Ice Zone: 1.5 year Postdoc position in the University of Reading
Numerical modelling of the Marginal Arctic Sea ice Cover
There is 1.5 year Postdoc position available in the Department of Meteorology, University of Reading. The deadline is
13 September 2019.
This project will investigate processes controlling sea ice Marginal Ice Zone evolution using existing and new observations. The project will use models that include
wave-ice interaction, ice breakup and melt, constrained and verified with observations, to explore feedbacks between the sea ice, ocean, and atmosphere with a series of reduced-complexity and full climate simulations. The project will quantify the impact of
the emerging dominance of the MIZ on the Arctic physical climate.
