THESIS: Classification and impact of marine heatwaves on the Kerguelen Plateau

Zimeng's project will investigate the criteria for marine heatwaves on the Kerguelen Plateau. Because of the high value of fisheries in the area, it is significant for us to understand the impact marine heatwaves have on the ecosystem. Studying marine heatwaves will help us better predict them in the future, and mitigate the damage to ecosystems and minimise the loss for fisheries.
