Researcher in global marine biogeochemical modelling, University of Bergen (UiB)

May 16, 2018 - 11:16 AM - by renjithvishnu
Researcher in global marine biogeochemical modelling

There is a vacancy for a position as Researcher in global marine biogeochemical modelling at the Geophysical Institute and the Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research. The position is for a period 1.5 years and is associated with the EU H2020 project CRESCENDO and a Bjerknes Centre internal project (BIGCHANGE).

About the project/work tasks

The project work includes improvement of process descriptions in the marine biogeochemical module of the Norwegian Earth system model NorESM and evaluation of model runs with the coupled NorESM (past, present, Future). Contributions are expected on:
• Improving the model representation of the carbon and nitrogen fluxes with special emphasis on the... [Read More]

PhD positions (trace metal biogeochemistry) at the University of Alaska Fairbanks

May 06, 2018 - 8:37 AM - by renjithvishnu
Graduate student (PhD) positions available in trace metal biogeochemistry at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, College of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences

Research projects:

1) Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) in the Northern Gulf of Alaska (NGA)
The Northern Gulf of Alaska is a subpolar biome characterized by enhanced productivity and high environmental variability. This project is part of the new NGA LTER site and focuses on understanding the processes that control macro- and micro-nutrient dynamics and their role on the pronounced spring bloom and the regions of sustained summer primary production. Observations will take place during 3 yearly cruises from spring to fall.

The student will be responsible for collecting and processing... [Read More]

A new ocean current off South Africa’s coast

Apr 10, 2018 - 6:53 AM - by renjithvishnu
A new coastal current: the Southwest MAdagascar Coastal Current (SMACC) has been uncovered by researchers at the University of the Cape Town, South Africa.The lead author of the paper (in the Geophysical Research Letters) announcing the discovery is Mr.Heriniaina Juliano Dani Ramanantsoa, who coincidentally hails from Madagascar and is a PhD student at the Department of Oceanography, University of the Cape Town.

SMACC flows along the southwestern coast of Madagascar toward the south. The SMACC is a relatively shallow (<300 m) and narrow (<100 km wide) warm and salty surface current, which is more intense in summer and reduced in winter. The Southwest MAdagascar Coastal Current has a downstream impact on the upwelling system at the south of Madagascar which is a... [Read More]

Citizen scientists lead to the discovery of optical structure in the upper atmosphere

Mar 29, 2018 - 9:59 AM - by renjithvishnu
A recent study (Science Advances 14 Mar 2018:Vol. 4, no. 3, eaaq0030: DOI: 10.1126/sciadv.aaq0030) in Science Advances shows the importance of citizen science.

A glowing ribbon of purple light running east-west in the night sky has recently been observed by citizen scientists. This narrow, subauroral, visible structure, distinct from the traditional auroral oval, was largely undocumented in the scientific literature and little was known about its formation. Amateur photo sequences showed colors distinctly different from common types of aurora and occasionally indicated magnetic field–aligned substructures. Observations from the Swarm satellite as it crossed the arc have revealed an unusual level of electron temperature enhancement and density depletion, along with a... [Read More]
