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.

Project:                    Late Quaternary variability in sources, pathways and flux of organic carbon in Arctic Ocean sediments and its paleoenvironmental significance

 

Hi, my name is Junjie! Originally coming from southern China, I did my B.Sc. and M.Sc. at Ocean University of China (OUC) in Qingdao. I’ve been working with biomarkers since my bachelor. For the bachelor and master theses, I reconstructed the sea surface temperature (SST) and phytoplankton primary production records with a time scale of the entire Holocene in the Yellow River. To broaden my knowledge of biomarkers and the climate-related changes in the Arctic Ocean, my PhD project focuses on multiproxy biomarker analyses in the Mackenzie region, with special emphasis on last ca. 15,000 years. Joining Arctrain offers me a great platform to advance the understanding of the Arctic Ocean, especially the Canadian Arctic. I believe my PhD project will benefit from the international and multidisciplinary program.

Project:                    Sea ice deformation and sea ice thickness change

 

I fell in love with the polar regions during my Arctic Geology studies at the University Centre in Svalbard. In my bachelor in geosciences, I explored polar sediment- and ice cores, that tell fascinating stories about former climate changes. An internship at the World Glacier Monitoring Service in Zürich introduced Greenland's glaciers to me. I continued to work on one of the largest outlet glaciers of Greenland during my master thesis, in which I focused on ocean-glacier interactions. During my master in Environmental Physics at the University of Bremen, I discovered the power of remote sensing for studying the remote polar regions. In my PhD at the Alfred Wegener Institute I use now remote sensing, but also in-situ measurements from buoys to address the question, how rifting, rafting, shearing and opening of sea ice impacts the thickness of sea ice. The different disciplines in ArcTrain offer me the great opportunity to continue like I started: to explore the polar regions from various perspectives.

Project:                    Origin and dispersal of ice-rafted debris along the continental margins of Atlantic Canada in the Late Quaternary

 

Hi, my name is Shettima Bukar and I'm from Nigeria. I studied Geology in my undergraduate and did my masters in Applied Marine Geoscience at Bangor University, UK. Generally, I developed a flair in the field of ocean sciences right after an undergraduate module I took titled Marine Geology. As such, I decided to go for the above mention masters program which is also an impetus that got me involved in the climate science discipline.  My MSc. thesis titled "A Seismo‐Stratigraphic and Geochemical Investigation of Lake Tana, Ethiopia Over the Last 16.5 Ka" focused on the elucidation of the climatic condition of Lake Tana on the course of its evolution. In this project, I was introduced to so many fascinating and challenging stuffs that led me to undertake my PhD research topic "Origin and dispersal of ice-rafted debris along the continental margins of Atlantic Canada in the Late Quaternary" where I intend to use the Grand Banks cores acquired during the MSM39 cruise along with some the Labrador Sea and Baffin Bay cores (not yet certain). The research would be focused on investigating the Ice Rafted Debris found in the Heinrich Event layers (evidently observed in the core samples). Hence, classify their composition, determine the provenance of the debris and as well as their sedimentation rate in the interest of answering issues of source fingerprinting and iceberg dispersal and melting in the Labrador/Grand Banks region.
