The British Antarctic Survey is inviting applications for a 3-year postdoctoral research position to undertake high-resolution model analysis to investigate dynamical processes in the Southern Ocean. This position will contribute to a project funded by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC): Expose (EXport Pathways Out of the Southern ocean and the Effect on anthropogenic carbon sequestration). Recent studies have placed a particular focus on the Southern Ocean since it has been shown to be a substantial sink of anthropogenic carbon: more than 40% of the global oceanic inventory of anthropogenic CO2 has entered the ocean south of 40S and is stored in mode and intermediate water layers. However, the transport pathways exporting water-masses and carbon out of the Southern Ocean are not well understood, and have been only analyzed in large-scale averages. Recently, it has been demonstrated that these water-masses, which ventilate the Southern Hemisphere thermocline and transport carbon are formed and subducted in specific regions, but the dynamics and the localisation of these pathways have never been studied. This is at odds with the evidence that the export of these water-masses has a strong and direct impact on climate and with the evidence that mode and intermediate pathways are not well represented in climate models, which introduces uncertainty into future predictions. The Expose project will provide a new and quantitative understanding these processes and their impacts on anthropogenic carbon sequestration.
