    We want to build a scientific instrument that can measure the amount of algae growing on the underside of sea ice. Sea-ice algae form the base of many polar marine foodwebs, but data on the mesoscale (tens to hundreds of km) variability in the abundance of algae are lac...

    Quantitative prediction of future sea level is currently impossible because we lack an understanding of how the mass balance of the Earth's great ice sheets can be affected by climate change. Chief among the uncertainties are how changes in ocean circulation and/or temp...

    Costs of rapid sea level rise globally to infrastructure (houses, roads, and farms, etc.) is likely to be large. A possible source of water for sea level rise is the West Antarctic Ice Sheet, and Thwaites Glacier in particular. Ice sheets and glaciers contain vast quant...

    The Earth's climate is changing, as it has done in the past. One of the great challenges faced by scientists today is to understand the causes and consequences of these changes. The way many scientists seek this understanding is by running computer-based climate simulat...

    Objective: to determine the ecological effects of elevated CO2 levels in coastal habitats. In an 8 month training period at CNRS Roscoff and the MBA Plymouth the student will monitor variations in carbonate chemistry and biota of rockpool habitats. The student will be t...
