The hired researcher will have to proof (technically and scientifically), optimise and document the representation of marine optics in ice-covered seas within the SI3 sea ice model. SI3 is the Sea Ice modelling Integrated Initiative code, part of the NEMO model. The new pieces of code will adhere to NEMO coding and design standards (including modularity) and will be used by a large model user community.


•Compare existing Beer-law-based radiative transfer schemes using observational data, if possible with Delta-Eddington approaches.
•Implement corrections in SI3 / NEMO code where needed (in particular within the sea ice thermodynamic routines, and within the ice-ocean interface) in a branch of the NEMO trunk.
•Document the modifications.


The researcher will need a Phd in Earth Science. Expertise on sea ice and marine modelling is required. Expertise on marine optics or on snow physics would be a plus.

Work Context

The researcher would get a 6-month contract, to work at the Laboratoire d'Océanographie et du Climat (LOCEAN), in Paris. LOCEAN is a forefront oceanography laboratory, holding >200 researcher on ocean and climate sciences. It hosts the NEMO system team, responsible for the development of the NEMO code. The Jussieu Campus is located within the heart of Paris, next to all commodities and attractions.
