Ocean circulation and climate

Research Area: Ocean circulation and processes

Research themes in Oceans and Climate include:

Assessing the role of the ocean in the past, contemporary and future global carbon cycle
Investigating ocean dynamics from fine scale turbulence to global overturning circulation
Unravelling the link between ocean physics, nutrients and phytoplankton productivity and diversity in the shelf seas and open ocean
Using and developing models to investigate the behaviour of carbon, nutrients and trace metals in the ocean
Investigating the processes that supply nutrients and sustain biological productivity
Assessing the magnitude, composition and fate of organic matter in the ocean
Developing novel analytical techniques to measure trace metals and contaminants in aquatic systems
