Decadal Variability in anthropogenic carbon uptake in the Pacific
12: Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences
As oceans absorb carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere from burning of fossil fuels and other human activities, it becomes increasingly important to monitor the resultant changes to ocean pH and the marine carbon cycle. Recent work has shown significant decadal variability in the uptake of carbon dioxide by the oceans. Using high quality data collected over 20 years in the eastern Pacific the student will use established techniques to analyze the data and determine the decadal changes in anthropogenic CO2 uptake and storage. Project will be conducted remotely.
Proficiency in MATLAB required, knowledge of acid/base chemistry desired.
