Ph.D. student

Si-biogeochemical cycle in the Southern Ocean and Antarctic Sea-ice by using the Si-isotopes (seasonally relative dissolved silicon utilization by diatoms and dynamic of the dissolved silicon pool (source, mixing, dissolution, utilization), and Si uptake and dissolution rates by diatoms)
