Master’s project studying Lagrangian transport in the Caribbean Sea

Ocean flow across Saba Bank in the Caribbean Sea.

A new MSc project using Lagrangian transport models to identify connectivity of ecosystems. 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
  • Lagrangian transdport modelling
  • Idenitfy sources and retention sites of food sources to Caribbean reefs and ecosystems.
  • Protection offered by coastal ecological system
  • Hydrodynamics and ecosystem interaction
  • Possibility to join observational expedition in Sint Maarten or at sea through NICO
  • High Performance Computing

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.
