MSc opportunity to study riverine-ocean temperature dynamics in Newfoundland & Labrador.
Location: Memorial University, Newfoundland
|Dr. Amanda Bates, Memorial University, seeks a positive and motivated graduate student (MSc) to advance understanding of riverine-ocean temperature dynamics in Newfoundland and Labrador.
The project focus will be on collating in situ and satellite temperature data to develop quantitative models to predict seasonal shifts in temperature regime across the freshwater-marine interface. Outputs will be relevant to sustainability of Arctic char and Atlantic salmon stocks. You will join the lab of Dr. Amanda Bates with committee members from the Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO): Dr. Travis Van Leeuwen and Dr. Tomas Bird.
