We are looking for a highly motivated student to investigate energy and momentum exchange processes between the atmosphere and the ocean. Understanding and quantifying energy and scalar fluxes across the air-sea interface are crucial for a number of environmental challenges, including weather, climate and sea state forecasting. The Air-Sea lnteraction group at the Institute of Coastal Research conducts laboratory and field based research, using novel imaging techniques to investigate small-scale turbulent dynamics within the coupled atmospheric and oceanic boundary layers. Particular focus is given to ocean surface waves, and how they influence ocean-atmosphere interactions.
