A fully-funded PhD studentship is available on the role of the ocean in the climate system. The extent to which the ocean contributes to climate variability on year-to-year and decade-to-decade timescales remains largely unclear. One key complication is that the processes that govern the temperature of the sea-surface are not fully understood. This is important since the ocean communicates with the atmosphere through the sea-surface temperature. As part of your PhD you will explore and quantify the physical processes that govern sea-surface temperature variability across a range of time and spatial scales. The work will involve exploring the role in sea-surface temperature variability of internal atmospheric dynamics, large-scale ocean dynamics, and diffusive mixing by turbulent motions in the ocean mixed layer. You will subsequently probe the importance of these various processes for climate variability in experiments run on numerical models. Your thesis will provide new insights into a problem that has critical implications for our understanding of climate variability across the globe.

Primary Supervisor :  Professor David WJ Thompson
