The Laboratory of Dynamical Meteorology (LMD) is looking for an early career scientist having a PhD in atmospheric science to analyze atmospheric turbulence observations that will be made from a research aircraft during the EUREC4A field campaign in 2020. The main goal of the campaign is to study the interactions between trade-cumuli, shallow convection and atmospheric circulations at different scales. The objective of the post-doctoral position is to relate the degree of mesoscale organization of the marine boundary layer to the mesoscale organization of trade cumuli, and to elucidate the role of turbulent processes in the mass budget of the boundary layer.
- Bibliography and design of an analysis strategy
- Participation in the field campaign in Barbados : quality control of the high-frequency meteorological measurements from the ATR, pre-analysis and strategic discussions
- Processing of high-frequency airborne measurements
- Analysis and exploitation of airborne measurements together with complementary observations from the campaign
- Atmospheric physics, especially in atmospheric boundary layer turbulence.
- Programming, linux environnement
- Data analysis
The work will be supervised by Sandrine Bony (LMD, PI of the EUREC4A campaign) and by Marie Lothon (Laboratoire d'Aérologie, expert in the airborne measurements of atmospheric turbulence). It will be based on the site of the Centre de Recherches Atmosphériques (CRA) in Lannemezan (South-West of France), the instrumented site of the Laboratoire d'Aérologie.
The work will be done in collaboration with French researchers from LMD (Paris), LA (Toulouse-Lannemezan) and CNRM (Toulouse), and with researchers from other countries (especially Germany) who will participate in the EUREC4A campaign.
