Community (#6) - [Job] Ocean / Ice Boundary Layer Modeller – Cambridge | Closing 25 Mar. 2018 (#34) - Message List
On behalf of Dr. Paul Holland
The Antarctic Ice Sheet is losing ice, causing sea-level rise. This ice loss is caused largely by changes in ocean melting of floating glacial ice shelves. It is therefore essential that we are able to understand this melting in order to determine Antarctica’s future contribution to sea-level rise. The rate at which glacial ice melts in the ocean is controlled by heat and salt transfer through a turbulent ocean boundary layer next to the ice. This project will use very-high-resolution models to test physical theories about the processes operating in this boundary layer and their effect on melting. These processes will then be parameterised for use in global climate models.
Informal enquiries about the post are very welcome and should be addressed to Dr. Paul Holland (p.holland@…).
