Michael Schodlok

Education
  • Diploma, Physical Oceanography, Christian Albrechts University, Kiel, Germany (1997)
  • PhD, Physics and Engineering, University of Bremen, Bremen, Germany (2002)

Research Interests
  • Ocean circulation and dynamics in high latitudes
  • Coupling of ocean processes between high and low latitudes
  • Iceshelf ocean interaction

Projects

ECCO-IcES Icon ECCO-IcES
ECCO-IcES is a project that aims to produce increasingly accurate syntheses of all available global-scale ocean and sea-ice data at resolutions that start to resolve ocean eddies.

OMG (Oceans Melting Greenland) Icon OMG (Oceans Melting Greenland)
OMG uses the GLISTIN-A radar to measure Greenland's receding glaciers, air-dropped ocean sensors to measure the nearby oceans, as well as ship-based sonar and airborne gravity to map the depth and shape of the sea floor around the glaciers.

    • Postdoctoral Scholar
  • AlfredWegener Insitute for Polar and Marine Research, Bremerhaven, Germany (2002-2006)
