Juliane’s background is in observational, physical oceanography and biophysical interactions. This has encompassed research over broad spatial and temporal scales: from tidal processes in shallow, coastal water, seasonal cycles of shelf seas, ocean-shelf exchange, and open ocean settings at tropical, temperate and polar latitudes.
Her main research objective is to better understand physical and biogeochemical pathways and interactions and their role in a changing climate. Juliane is particularly interested in better understanding ocean mixing processes and atmosphere-ocean interactions and what their impact is on the seasonal to multi-annual variability of biophysical interactions in shelf and open ocean settings.
Juliane is an experienced user of marine autonomous vehicles including Argo, AUVs and ocean gliders.
