„Marine Biogeochemistry“ .


The PHD will investigate the oceanic source of halogenated and sulphur
compounds to the atmosphere under both current and future climate conditions.
The research includes the development of an emissions module for short lived
trace gases that will be coupled to the new generation of chemistry climate
models in order to determine how the important climate active gases influence
the middle atmosphere, now and in the future. Experience and results from previous
work computing oceanic halogen emissions exist. The candidate will compile
variables from current literature, build a database, and compute emissions
using MATLAB, constituting the basis for the module. The module will then be
implemented in FORTRAN. 


We are looking for a highly motivated candidate, interested in sea
surface processes, with enthusiasm for mathematical models. The applicant must
have a university degree in either chemistry, oceanography, meteorology, physics,
