We are looking for two postdoctoral researchers in airborne and satellite remote sensing of sea ice during MOSAiC. The three-year, full-time positions could start as soon as Nov 1 and are in the IceSense project funded by the German research ministry BMBF. You can find descriptions of the two positions below. The positions will shortly be officially announced at https://www.awi.de/en/work-study/jobs/job-offer.html . Please monitor that web site closely if you are interested, and applications can only be submitted through there.
However, if you'd like more information before please contact me
PostDoc on Airborne Laser Scanning (ALS) Observations of Sea
PostDoc on Airborne and Satellite Remote Sensing of melt ponds on sea ice
The position encompasses the processing, classification, and analysis of airborne and satellite data of the seasonal evolution and regional differences of melt pond coverage and geometry. The work will include the following tasks:
• Processing of airborne imagery;
• Analysis of melt pond coverage and geometry in relation to ice type and morphology, and their temporal and regional variability;
• Improvement of MODIS retrieval algorithm with MOSAiC airborne data;
• Development and validation of Arctic-wide melt pond coverage product covering the last decades based on improved MODIS or other optical/spectral satellite data;
• Synthesis and collaboration in the frame of the overall MOSAiC science work;
• Treatment of other topics related to melt ponds and MOSAiC if desired by the postdoctoral researcher;
• Publication of datasets and scientific findings.
The analysis of airborne (helicopter and fixed-wing) and satellite melt pond data will make use of numerous auxiliary observations from the vast MOSAiC data sets, like in-situ ice and melt pond data and other airborne and satellite remote sensing products.
