Thesis Title

Characterising the physical and biological properties of Southern Ocean mesoscale eddies using satellite and Argo float data.

Biography

Hannah has completed a Bachelor of Science at the University of Western Australia and am interested in physical and biological oceanography and the interaction between the ocean and the Earth’s atmosphere. She is now undertaking an honours project at the University of Tasmania. This project aims to investigate the physical and biological characteristics of mesoscale eddies in the Southern Ocean using remotely sensed satellite data and Argo float data. In particular, she will be looking at the chlorophyll signature, sea surface temperature and oxygen profiles of the eddies.
