Descriptions of some PhD projects that I have in mind. Talk to me, if you find one of them or their combination interesting and challenging.

[1: PARTIALLY TAKEN] Gulf Stream Dynamics with Primitive Equations

[2] General Circulation of the Red Sea (exotic and pioneering study)

[3: PARTIALLY TAKEN] Parameterization of the Oceanic Eddy Backscatter

[4: TAKEN] Material Transport and Stirring in the Ocean (Lagrangian effects and methods)

[5: TAKEN] Data-Driven Reduced Models (mathematics of statistical/stochastic models)

[6] Rossby Waves in Inhomogeneous Media

[7] Isolated Coherent Vortices in Geostrophic Turbulence

[8: TAKEN] Conundrum of Multiple Jets and Eddies: Large-Scale Flow Effects

[9: TAKEN] Atlantic-Pacific Decadal Teleconnections in Coupled Ocean-Atmosphere Models

[10] Transport and Clusterization of Floating Particles in the Ocean

If you have your own project ideas, do not hesitate to propose them, as I am not fixed on the above-listed ideas. If needed, any of the listed projects can be downscaled and reformatted into a Master Degree research project.

THE HIGHEST PRIORITY WILL BE GIVEN TO STUDENTS WITH THE SKILLS AND GENUINE INTEREST IN COMPUTATIONAL GEOPHYSICAL FLUID DYNAMICS AND OCEAN MODELLING
