My primary research goals are toward to develope the ocean and sea ice data-assimilation system with ensemble assimilation method and newest-types of observations for forecasting:

  • Focused on the Ensemble data assimilation method in operational oceanography to develope the practical schemes in different model systems.
  • Evaluation and investigation new types of ocean and sea ice observations in the related forecast systems.

INDO-MARECLIM: Indo-European Research Facilities for Studies on Marine Ecosystem and Climate in India

INDO-MAREClim will capitalize on the NERCI infrastructure to facilitate and improve European Union co-operation with India in the research areas of marine ecosystems and climate, including the impact on the society.

INDO-MARECLIM capitalizes on the Norwegian institutional establishment, infrastructure and network of scientific cooperation built up India since 1998 around the Nansen Environmental Research Centre-India (NERCI) in Kerala, India. INDO-MARECLIM aims at facilitating and improving the co-operation between the European Union Members States and Associated Countries and India and includes partners from UK, France, Italy, the Netherlands and Norway, involved in research topics of relevance to India.

OC-CCI: The ESA Ocean Colour Climate Change Initiative

The ESA has initiated ClimateChange Initiatives for all Essential Climate Variables. the Ocean Colour CCI is the only one of them that related to a "living" variable.

The Ocean Colour CCI (OC_CCI) project focuses on the Ocean Colour ECV encompassing water-leaving radiance in the visible domain, derived chlorophyll and inherent optical properties and will utilise data archives of from ESA’s MERIS and NASA’s SeaWiFS, MODIS and possibly CZCS (after careful evaluation) sensors archives.

MERSEA: Marine Environment and Security for the European Area

Developmenting a European system for operational monitoring and forecasting of the ocean physics, biogeochemistry, and ecosystems, on global and regional scales.

GMES (Global Monitoring for Environment and Security) is a joint initiative of the European Commission and the European Space Agency, designed to establish a European capacity for the provision and use of operational information for Global Monitoring of Environment and Security. To support the development of the Ocean and Marine Applications component of GMES, the EC is funding the MERSEA integrated project.

GreenSeas: Development of global plankton data base and model system for eco-climate early warning

Advancing the quantitative knowledge of how planktonic marine ecosystems, including phytoplankton, bacterioplankton and zooplankton, will respond to environmental and climate changes

GreenSeas shall advance the quantitative knowledge of how planktonic marine ecosystems, including phytoplankton, bacterioplankton and zooplankton, will respond to environmental and climate changes. To achieve this GreenSeas will employ a combination of observation data, numerical simulations and a cross-disciplinary synthesis to develop a high quality, harmonized and standardized plankton and plankton ecology long time-series, data inventory and information service.

For my PhD dissertation I implemented the Hybrid Coordinate Ocean Model (HYCOM) in the greater Agulhas Current system. The main objective of this work was to develop HYCOM for mesoscale modelling of the region. This included performing hindcast simulation experiments and validating the model fields against satellite remote sensing and in-situ data, and implementing and testing new model developments. The major findings are both methodological and oceanographic in nature.

My main interest is the use of coupled physical-biological models to study the interaction between physical ocean processes and the marine ecosystem on lower trophic levels.  Examples of such interactions are exchange between the coastal and open ocean ecosystem through cross-shelf transport, influence of climate variability on the timing and magnitude of the spring bloom, and how eddies and fronts influence the plankton distribution.  Models are useful for studying these problems because they provide understanding of the 3-dimentional dynamics involved.
