Until now, sea ice dynamics and ocean acidification in the Southern Ocean have been investigated in isolation. Here, you will investigate the interplay between both. This PhD project has these objectives:
- To quantify the progression of ocean acidification in the Southern Ocean over recent decades;
- To determine the processes affecting Southern Ocean carbonate chemistry and in particular the role of sea ice.
- To study the seasonal cycle of the Southern Ocean CO2 sink and its drivers.
