Research Assistantship
Polar Climate and Meteorological Modelling

Environmental Change Initiative
Dept of Geological Sciences
Brown University

Research assistantships including tuition support and stipend are
available for students interested in graduate study of Antarctic
atmosphere-sea ice interactions using numerical models, satellite
products and data analysis. The Antarctic ice sheet constitutes the
largest reservoir of freshwater on earth, representing tens of meters
of sea level rise if it was to melt completely. The Antarctic ice
sheet mass balance is maintained in part by snowfall from synoptic and
mesoscale cyclones. This research investigates the interactions
between sea ice, land ice, and atmosphere that control the development
of polar cyclones to better understand their role in moisture
transport both now and in future climate scenarios.

Assistantships are available to commence in January.
