Job Vacancy - West Antarctic Climate Modeller

West Antarctica has experienced some of the largest climatic changes on Earth over recent years, including a marked surface warming and an increase in storm activity over the Southern Ocean. This study will investigate the mechanisms behind recent changes using a high resolution (10 km) regional atmosphere-only model. The model will then be run for selected periods over the next century with various greenhouse gas emission scenarios and with the expected recovery of the ozone hole.
