The Antarctic ice sheet constituted the largest reservoir of freshwater on Earth, representing tens of meters of sea level rise if it were to melt completely. We are investigating the role of cyclones in modifying the Antarctic climate. In particular we are interested in investigating what the role of cyclones in modifying the ice sheet mass balance by bringing and redistributing snow. We are also interested in investigating how cyclones affect sea ice around Antarctica.
The graduate student will join the on-going project contributing to climate modeling and data analysis efforts. Strong quantitative skills are required, prior interest in polar regions and/or meteorology and climatology is preferred.
