I’m a NERC EnvEast PhD student, working with Dr Alex Brearley in the polar oceans team. My research is about the sources of overturning water in the Arctic and North Atlantic oceans and how they vary. This water feeds the deep limb of the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation, an important climate system that transports heat to high latitudes. I am using measurements (moorings and CTDs) to investigate the variability of the boundary currents that flow parallel to Greenland – the nature of their variability and the processes that drive it.
