Dr Pete Brown

WP2 | National Oceanography Center, UK

Pete’s research interests lie in investigating the biogeochemical and physical drivers behind the variability identified in the air-sea flux of carbon and its subsequent accumulation, transport and storage in the ocean over multiple timescales. His work has used observations to interrogate the role of ocean circulation in this in the North Atlantic, and how it impacts surface productivity and air-sea CO2 exchange. He is part of OceanICU’s WP2, looking at how variability in circulation impacts the biological carbon pump. He will examine the relationship between AMOC magnitude and thermal and non-thermal components of carbon fluxes, particularly looking at the effects of short-term fluctuations in overturning on water mass structure, vertical nutrient supply and primary production.
