Master’s project applying EOF analysis in the Caribbean Sea

A new MSc project in physical oceanography studying processes in the Caribbean Sea basin. This will build on existing efforts using EOF analysis to identify correlations between ocean, weather and climate processes. Contributing to the NWO-funded project SCENES: Multi-scale modelling of the Caribbean Sea, from global-scale inputs down to complex ‘fractal-like’ bays and inlets.

  • Physical Oceanography
  • EOF correlation analysis
  • Oceanographic processes
  • Multi-scale from climate, global scales down to Caribbean bays
  • Hydrodynamics and river plume interaction
  • Possibility to join observational expedition in Sint Maarten or at sea through NICO

Working with Adam Candy, Julie Pietrzak, Marcel Zijlema and others in Physical Oceanography and Environmental Fluid Mechanics. Further collaboration with climate modellers at the University of Utrecht and marine biologists at NIOZ.

Contact me for further details, and happy to talk through – please visit office 2.87 of the CEG building. There are additional possibilities for MSc projects on data and modelling of the Caribbean Sea that I am happy to talk through. Some of these can be found here.
