Straneo, Fiammetta Senior Scientist, Physical Oceanography


Our group studies high latitude oceanic processes and their role in the climate sytem. Our work has focused on the Arctic and North Atlantic Oceans and on their interaction with other components of the climate system (the atmosphere, the cryosphere). Specific areas of interest include the poleward flow and transformation of warm waters, the formation of dense waters in the convective regions of the North Atlantic, the export of freshwater from the Arctic, and the interaction of ocean waters with Greenland's outlet glaciers. Our methods include data collection from a range of coastal to open ocean vessels, helicopters and land stations, analysis of historical data, theory and process oriented modeling.
