Research Interests

  • Role of Polar Regions in climate change
  • Physical Oceanography
  • Air-Sea-Ice Interaction
  • Meridional Overturning Circulation

Research Plan: 

Historical atmospheric reanalysis data (ECMWF) and satellite sea-ice observations (MODIS, AMSR-2) will be analyzed for two Antarctic study regions, off the Sabrina and Adelie Coasts.  These regions share similar polynya characteristics.  

A unique combination of these in-situ, remote and assimilated data sets will allow for the investigation of air-sea-ice processes over the Antarctic continental shelf that change the properties of key water masses involved in the Global Meridional Overturning Circulation and global sea level rise.

Among these processes are:

  • Ocean-atmosphere surface heat flux and brine release within coastal polynyas during winter sea-ice production
  • Wind-driven Ekman transport of surface waters
  • Upwelling of warm subsurface waters; injection of glacial and ice shelf basal meltwater
  • Vertical mixing leading to the production of Antarctic Bottom Water
