Research theme: Arctic deep waters

Project “Why is the deep Arctic Ocean Warming? (WAOW)”, funded by Vetenskapsrådet grant 2018-03859
Ca 4 million SEK; I am the PI (single applicant here)
Started in January 2019, finishes in December 2022

The aim of this project is to finally determine the path and variability of the deep waters of the Arctic Ocean, from 2000 m to the sea floor, using notably data that we collected during the international MOSAiC expedition (2020) and will collect as part of the Synoptic Arctic Survey (2021).


  • Myself;
  • PhD student Salar Karam, of which I am the main supervisor, October 2019 to September 2023;
  • Maren Walters from Uni Bremen, for expertise with CFC analysis;
  • Collaboration with the wider MOSAiC Team Ocean and the Swedish Synoptic Arctic Survey consortium.


Nothing yet; we are currently analysing the MOSAiC data.
