Research Project: The changing uptake and transport of carbon in the Atlantic Ocean

Supervisors: Dr Dorothee Bakker (University of East Anglia, School of Environmental Sciences), Dr Ute Schuster (University of Exeter)
Secondary Supervisor: Prof Nicolas Gruber (Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule Zürich)

Project Description

Undertake measurements of inorganic C and transient tracers along five deep hydrographic sections in the Atlantic Ocean, and use them to estimate air-sea C exchange over the wider Atlantic region with spatial scaling using remote sensing data.
