Project:                    Freshwater variability of the subpolar North Atlantic and the Arctic Ocean

 

In my Masters I studied Marine Environmental Sciences at the Carl von Ossietzky University of Oldenburg and focused on physics and modeling. I wrote my thesis about frontal analyses in the shelf region of the western North Atlantic in the Oceanography Group of the Institute of Environmental Physics at the University of Bremen. Joining ArcTrain gives me the opportunity to exchange ideas with a group of people from different nations and different research fields from which I hopefully will learn a lot.

Project:                   Response of Arctic sea level and hydrography to hydrological regime change over boreal catchments

 

I have always been very interested in environmental processes and climate change. Hence, I am very glad about doing research about climate change in the Arctic region together with other motivated people as part of the ArcTrain project .
After finishing school I did a voluntary service in India for one year. There, I decided to do a B.Sc. in Geophysics/Oceanography in Hamburg. I did a M.Sc. in Geophysics in Hamburg as well, focusing in my master thesis on modeling the advection of volcanic ash on an adaptive grid. For my PhD I switched to modeling other parts of our environmental system: I want to assess the response of Arctic sea level, ocean circulation and sea ice to variations in freshwater inflow (especially from river discharge) to the Arctic Ocean.

Project:                   Late Quaternary NW Atlantic paleoceanography from magneto- and lithostratigraphic records off Newfoundland

 

Hi! Coming from China, I finished my master program “marine geology” at Tongji University. Through my master study, I learned much about the paleoceanography and sedimentology and in my master thesis, I combined the traditional sedimentology with stratigraphy to reconstruct the evolution of the Yangtze delta. I find it interesting to combine different methods across disciplines for marine research. So I come here to learn a new method: paleomagnetism. Joining ArcTrain will also help me to broaden my horizons of interdisciplinarity as well as offering the chance of international exchange. Now my initial research goals are to establish consistent high-resolution chronologies for the NW Atlantic-Labrador Sea sediment records using magnetostratigraphic and core logging methods.

Project:                   Sea ice concentration from merged passive microwave, optical, and SAR satellite observations

 

'Hi! Being originally from Southern Germany, I moved to Hamburg in 2010 to study Geophysics & Oceanography (B.Sc.) and climate research (M.Sc.). I have always been fascinated by oceans in general and polar adventure stories in particular. Studying climate research with focus on sea ice enabled me to combine my selfish wish to do something I really like and my idealistic wish to study something of immediate social relevance. So, I started working on sea ice concentration retrieval from satellite data in my bachelor's and master's thesis. One of the highlights was a 6-week-stay in Svalbard where I noticed that it's a fundamentally different thing to see sea ice with my own eyes compared to looking at colourful pictures on my monitor. With my PhD thesis I strive to improve the resolution and accuracy of sea ice concentration datasets by combining different types of satellite measurements with different strengths and weaknesses. Other topics I am interested in include the various societal, socioeconomic and physical/biological/chemical aspects of the climate system and the tremendous changes which they have undergone in the last 150 years and will experience during the next centuries. ArcTrain gives me the opportunity to learn something about topics I know absolutely nothing aboutand to get to know nice and interesting people in Bremen and Canada.

Project:                   Remote sensing of sea ice thickness and leads using radar altimetry, microwave and optical sensors

 

I studied Applied Physics and Mathematics at the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology. During my master program I have also spent couple semesters at the University Centre in Svalbard where I studied sea ice structure, mechanics, thermodynamics and done my master project about influence of brine filtration through sea ice on process of its thermal expansion. Now I work on remote sensing of sea ice at the Bremen University. I believe joining ArcTrain will help me to work on my PhD project. I think it's a nice opportunity to work in international team with people having different backgrounds.

Project:                   Ocean-glacier interaction on the large regional and global scale

 

Hello, my name is Beatriz and I'm an international student at Universität Bremen from El Salvador, Central America. I've been living in Europe since 2013 doing my master studies. I was part of the program: Erasmus Mundus European MSci. in Marine Environment and Resources. I did my master thesis at AWI, where I became interested for cryospheric sciences. Now during my PhD I will study tidewater glaciers and their interaction with the ocean.
Being part of ArcTrain will allow me to meet the international glaciological community, and exchange my ideas and research with experts on the field. Sea level rise is a global problem, that will affect communities from all over the world and requires that all of us work together regardless where we come from.

Project:                    Arctic Freshwater Discharge, Sea-Ice Formation, and Deglacial to Holocene Climate Variability - A Biomarker Approach

 

Hello! I’m Nicole and happy to be an associated ArcTrain member! I studied marine geosciences at the University of Bremen and since June 2016 I am PhD student at the AWI. For my master thesis I went on an exciting excursion to central Spitsbergen in 2013 to reconstruct a shallow, warm-water carbonate platform from the Upper Carboniferous. Nowadays, arctic sea ice is my passion! Using the novel biomarker IP25, I would like to know more about the sea-ice variability during the last 20 ka off NE-Greenland and in the Mackenzie region. Combining this proxy with phytoplankton marker (PIP25) it allows me to receive even more information about the environmental conditions e.g. marin vs. terrestrial, primary production. I believe to highly benefit academically and personally from the participation in the ArcTrain program, which offers me the perfect platform to interact with international scientists working in the same research area!

Project:                     

 

Hi, I'm Deniz! I did my bachelor in civil engineering at Middle East Technical University (METU) in Turkey. I continued with master in the same department on coastal engineering. For my thesis I used a coupled wave-circulation model to study storm surge and resulted coastal flooding. For my PhD I moved further away from the land and now I'm studying the mixing in the Denmark Strait Overflow using a high resolution regional model. Being a part of ArcTrain gives me the opportunity meet with people working on different topics and allows me to learn about different research fields.
