Project: HB 2-7 Impacts of fronts on detachment of waters from the boundary current and consequences for their lateral spreading within the subpolar gyre of the North Atlantic

 

Hello, I'm Aleksei. I'm happy to become the part of ArcTrain PhD program in the framework of project HB-07. My basic interest in Oceanography was born at St. Petersburg State University during Bachelor studies. I expanded and improved my knowledge in Polar and Marine Sciences during studies on joint Russian-German Master program POMOR at St. Petersburg State University and the University of Hamburg. My thesis was concerned on investigation of wind-generated waves in the Laptev Sea. After that, I decided to continue my life in Earth Scinces researching ocean dynamics and related subjects and applied for current PhD program. For me it is excellent opportunity of working in international, interdisciplinary team. I hope to carry out interesting and prospective investigation in the region of great climate importance, to meet interesting people and establish new contacts.

Project: HB 2-9 Consequences of past environmental change for marine ecosystems of the Baffin Bay

 

I studied Geosciences at the University of Bremen. During my Master’s Thesis I studied the influences of environmental forcings on morphological traits of the planktonic foraminifera Globigerinoides sacculifer with the aim to better understand these traits and apply them as an indicator in climate reconstruction. During my PhD project I will focus on using different micropaleontological tools to reconstruct paleoenvironments in the Baffin Bay area during the Holocene. My aim is to analyze the biotic response of the fauna to changing environmental conditions. Being hooked by climate research since my first months at University, I am especially excited to be a part of the ArcTrain program. It will offer a lot of opportunities and it will most certainly be an adventure.

Project: HB 2-10 Assessing the ecology of the planktonic foraminifer Neogloboquadrina pachyderma

 

Hello! My name is Mattia and I’m from Italy. I studied Biodiversity and Evolution at the University of Bologna and for my master project, I used molecular techniques and morphological analyses to study and quantify the response of cultured benthic foraminifera assemblages to inorganic pollution. During my Ph.D., my work will focus on investigating the ecology and the depth habitat of Arctic species of planktonic foraminifera used as a source of paleoceanographic information. I am excited to be part of the ArcTrain program because it is a unique and challenging opportunity to learn a lot from people with a background different from mine in an international and interdisciplinary context.

Project: HB 2-11 Fate and impact of deglacial meltwater runoff in the northwesten Atlantic Ocean

 

Hi there! My name is Rémi and I come from France. I did my bachelor's degree in fundamental physics in the Montpellier University 2 (UM2). With this background in physics, I studied oceanography which is very interesting for its pluridisciplinarity. During my master's degree in physical oceanography at Aix-Marseille University (AMU), I get the opportunity to work with a general circulation model to simulate and understand the oceanic circulation. The aim of my PhD with the ArcTrain program is to investigate the impact of deglacial meltwater runoff from the Laurentide ice sheet. This runoff is thought to be responsible for abrupt changes in the circulation of the northwestern Atlantic Ocean during the last deglaciation. A regional coupled ocean-sea ice model, based on the MIT general circulation model (MITgcm), is used to study and trace the meltwater in the northwestern Atlantic Ocean.

Project: HB 2-1 Changes in Arctic sea ice dynamics observed by satellites

 

Hello! I did my Diploma at Moscow State University of Geodesy and Cartography in the field of Geodesy. During my work at the GNSS company at Moscow I have gained a great interest in the satellite application engineering. Later, I have decided to pursue the field of my interests and continue my study at TU München at the Master’s program ESPACE ( Earth Oriented Space Science and Technologies ). I did my Master’s thesis at the DLR ( German Aerospace Center). The topic was related to the adaptation of the 2D FFT algorithm for the optical image data analysis of the atmosphere. Now, I am really happy to be a part of the ArcTrain program. I am going to work on the Changes in Arctic sea ice dynamics observed by satellites and implications for the coupled climate system. I am looking forward to work with an international and interdisciplinary group of researches.

Project: HB 2-12 Impact of meltwater events on weathering and detrital fluxes along the coast of western Greenland, Baffin Bay

 

Hej there, I studied Geoscience at the Universities of Bremen and Gothenburg with a strong focus on Marine and Environmental Geology as well as Geochemistry. During my master studies I was offered the opportunity to take part in an expedition to Baffin Bay and to connect it to my master thesis. Seeing this unique and beautiful environment and spending an intense time of reading and writing about the topic during my master thesis got me hooked to the (Arctic) region. I’m really happy to be able to continue and intensify what I started within my master thesis now throughout my PhD. Being a PhD student within ArcTrain offers me the opportunity to continue working in an international and interdisciplinary environment, as I already experienced it during my master studies in Sweden, as well as to add my contribution to the important topic of Polar Research.

Project: HB 2-5 Transport variability from the subtropics and its impact on glacial melt

 

Hello! I am Hannah and I studied Physics in Marburg, Gothenburg and Heidelberg. During my studies at the Institute of Environmental Physics in Heidelberg and especially while working on my Master’s thesis on the variability of the past seawater uranium isotopic composition, I discovered my interest in Oceanography in general and in the North Atlantic as a key climate relevant region in particular. I am very glad to be part of the ArcTrain project as I have now not only the chance to further continue research in the fascinating field of Oceanography with a focus on the North Atlantic but also the great opportunity of working in an international and interdisciplinary research team from which I hope to learn a lot.

Project: HB 2-2 Constraining sea ice models with observations and data assimilation methods: impact of rheology,resolution, and parameterizations on climate simulations

 

I studied Physics and Astronomy, with a Minor in Environmental Sciences in the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne. Then I have decided to focus on my Minor subject and search for a PhD position in Climate Science. Thereby, after modeling the hottest known exoplanets, I am now working on the numerical simulation of the coldest places on our planet! My research is focused on the modeling of sea ice behavior in the arctic. I'm really happy to join ArcTrain, which represent for me a great opportunity to discover the diversity of the field and to get an international experience.

Project: HB 2-3 Deglacial-Holocene variability in melt-water discharge, sea-ice formation, primary production and (abrupt) climate change

 

As a graduate of Earth Sciences from IISER-Kolkata, India, my interests lies in using biomarkers for paleoclimate reconstruction. I wrote my master thesis entitled ‘Using n-alkane as proxy for paleoclimate reconstruction in Sunderban delta, India’. Subsequently, I got experience in using n-alkane as proxy (δD and δ13C) for paleoclimate reconstruction in Tibetan Plateau at MPI-Biogeochemistry-Jena. Having joined international ArcTrain group at marum and AWI gives me the excellent platform to exchange ideas with a group of international people working in different aspect of Arctic sea ice research and their implication for past and future climate development. I will use specific biomarkers indicative for sea ice (IP25, PIP25), primary production and terrigenous input (n-alkanes, sterols, alkenones) as well as compound-specific stable isotopes (dD of algae) as proxy for meltwater discharge. As an ArcTrain member, I hope to learn a lot, meet interesting people and make excellent experience with it.

Project: HB 2-6 Mixing-induced vertical heat and feshwater fluxes in the upper ocean

 

Hello! I studied physical oceanography for 5 years at the St. Petersburg State University, St. Petersburg, Russia. My Diploma research project was at the intersection of mathematics, physics and statistics. After the graduation, I continued my research as a PhD student at the St. Petersburg State University. Previously my regions of studies were the Baltic Sea and the Russian Arctic Seas (Barents, Kara, Laptev, Pechora Seas). In 2014-2016 I studied the sea currents and sea ice drift for the regions of studies and tried to construct stochastic model of system including these processes, meteorological and hydrological parameters. I also worked as Junior Research Scientist in 2013-2016 at the Arctic and Antarctic Research Institute. I was involved in data processing of ADCPs, IPSs, Argos buoys and satellites and analysis of sea currents, sea ice drifts, sea level frictions, wind-driven waves and sediment transport. During the work under my current PhD project at the Bremen University I’m going to apply my experience in the ADCP data processing, change the region of studies to the Labrador Sea and North Atlantic and connect the results with global climate changes in the Arctic region with the hydrological and meteorological datasets. I’m proud to be a part of ArcTrain Project Team, it’s an interesting experience for me to work in the international team.

Project: HB 2-4 Impact of natural climate variability on Canadian Arctic glaciers during the Holocene

 

Hallo, I'm Anouk and I'm very interested in glaciology and climate research. This interest developed during the last year of my BSc Earth Science, at the University of Amsterdam. In that year I went for the first time to Spitsbergen to focus for one semester on Arctic Geology at the University Centre in Svalbard. This amazing experience resulted in my choice to study Climate Studies at the University of Wageningen, during which also focused on glaciers. During my PhD I will look at the influence of natural climate variability on glaciers in Arctic Canada. For many reasons I'm very excited to be a part of Arctrain. To start, I enjoy being a part of an international and interdisciplinary team. Next to that, I'm looking forward to the new experiences I will gain, things I will learn and people I will meet, as an Arctic member.

Project: HB 2-8 North - Eastern Baffin Bay response to (early) Holocene warming

 

Having studied marine geosciences in Bremen, I have been introduced to and fascinated by paleoenvironmental research since the first year of my bachelors. For my M.Sc.-thesis I used a combination of micropaleontological and geochemical proxies to reconstruct the climate variability in continental southern Africa and the adjacent Benguela Upwelling System during the late Holocene. My PhD-project will follow a similar approach as I will investigate patterns of meltwater induced sediment input and its geochemical signature alongside micropaleontological records and stable isotope data to develop an understanding of how the north eastern Baffin Bay region responded to early Holocene warming.
I’m excited to be part of ArcTrain because it presents a great opportunity to work in an international and interdisciplinary group of researchers, meet people and exchange ideas.
