About the position:
Research in the Centre of excellence CAGE focuses on the role of the Arctic Ocean gas hydrate in the context of environmental and climate issues. Understanding methane bubble evolution and transport in the water column will help elucidating methane seepage influence on the benthic and pelagic environment and atmospheric climate gas composition. The fellow will in particular estimate bubble size distributions from image analysis and acoustic measurements, and will incorporate an existing process-based model into a high-resolution 3D model to understand the transport of dissolved and free methane.
