- To investigate the air-sea CO2 distribution and its variability in the vicinity of the Amazon plume with energetic meso-scale variability of the the ocean circulation and transport. The emphasis will be on the late summer/fall season and results will be compared with what was observed during early 2020.
- High resolution in situ data analyses of cruise data in 2020 and 2021 offshore of northeastern south America, crossing the Amazon plume.
- High and medium resolution satellite data products in the same region. The emphasis will be first to diagnose a surface pCO2 distribution from these products. Then, to estimate the contribution of high frequency and/or meso-scale variability on the pCO2 distribution at the sea surface and the air-sea CO2 exchanges, in particular during the late summer/fall season
- Contribute to a scientific paper
- analysis technics of in situ and satellite data
- Good background in sea surface ocean variability, both physical and bioegeochemical,
- Previous experience on low salinity tropical ocean regions.
- Previous experience in writing papers and to orally present results
LOCEAN is a pluri-disciplinary laboratory dedicated to the investigation of the ocean and its role on climate varaibility, in present time, as well as in past and future climates. LOCEAN includes on the order of 200 personnels, half of which been research scientists or faculty, loceated mostly in the Paris area (campuses at Jussieu and Bondy). The hired researcher wil integrate PROTEO team, dedicated to the investigation of the meso-scale and fine-scale oceanvariability with varied tools in numerical modelling and in in situ and satellite data. The researcher will work under the supervision of Gilles Reverdin and Jacqueline Boutin.
