A lot has happened over the past few months with the publication of high-profile and challenging research and the continuing growth, development and recognition for the RP4 team.

The summer student on this project will make use of recent observations and combine these novel machine learning and image processing techniques to understand the drivers of recent ocean change.
The ocean plays a critical role in the climate system by transferring heat from the tropics toward the poles, helping to regulate regional climates. How this heat transport may change in the future remains a first order question in climate science.
We seek a student to help develop a simple mathematical model to describe the ocean’s octopus like shape and what the movement of its tentacles tells us about climate change.
What would happen if we suddenly warmed the ocean at the sea-surface? Would suddenly cooling it down cause an equal and opposite response? The student will work towards developing novel theories to describe the ocean’s response to extreme perturbations. These theories are needed to understand the ocean's role in transient climate change.
