PhD-project title: Island effects on marine production and circulation around the Antarctic Peninsula
The project will implement a high-resolution version of the Regional Oceanic Modeling System (ROMS) for the Drake Passage and Atlantic sector of the Southern Ocean to study the dynamics of the circulation and quantify the fluxes of macro- and micro-nutrients in the water column and from the sediments. The effects of eddies and jets on marine biota and productivity will be investigated with a coupled biogeochemical model. Geological, remote sensing and climate data will be used for model setup and validation.
