The flow of land-derived groundwater in the ocean environment (or submarine groundwater discharge - SGD) is a common global observation however poorly studied so far. The groundwater discharge has been recognized as an important source of freshwater and chemical substances for some coastal areas. Besides, the strength of SGD is known to associate with climate changes, especially in the Arctic region. Large bodies of ice, such as glaciers in the ocean and frozen soils on land, can change the flow of groundwater; the shrinking of these ice bodies could, therefore, have an immense impact on the water cycle. Up to date, scientists know very little about how much of this fresh groundwater is discharged to the Arctic Ocean, SGD composition, and SGD influence on the benthos organisms living in the ocean. The proposed investigations will provide an opportunity to demonstrate how multidisciplinary approaches, including biology, geochemistry, and geology, should be integrated to understand the ecosystem functioning with an in-depth understanding of the biogeochemical processes involved. It will bring together scientists with various oceanography background (biology, ecology, chemistry, geology) and experience (from senior and young researchers to prospective PhD student) and provide a holistic approach to problem-solving. Field studies will be conducted around Svalbard and in the Lofoten-Vesterålen continental slope off northern Norway.
The main goal of the doctoral dissertation will be to estimate the groundwater inflow in the Arctic region and to determine its range and biogeochemical impact.
The PhD student's tasks will include:
• determine the factors controlling SGD in the study area;
• reconstruct the history of SGD in the Arctic;
• quantitative measurement of groundwater fluxes and associated chemical solutes;
• participation in research cruises;
• preparation of scientific articles;
• participation in international conferences; research area
The proposed PhD work will be part of the ArcticSGD project (Submarine Groundwater Discharge in the Changing Arctic: Scale and Biogeochemical Impact) funded by the Polish National Science Centre and conducted at both the Institute of Oceanology of the Polish Academy of Sciences, Sopot, Poland and Geological Survey of Norway Trondheim, Norway.
Duration: 3 years (6 semesters), with the possibility of extension for 12 additional months, from October 2020
Scholarship: 5000 PLN per month throughout the 36 months (3 years), with the possibility of extension for 12 additional months
Application deadline: 27th August 2020
The settlement of the competition: 30th September 2020
According to this position Candidate must become a PhD student (at the International Environmental Doctoral School associated with the Centre for Polar Studies at the University of Silesia in Katowice (IEDS). Title of PhD project: Significance of submarine groundwater discharge (SGD) in the Arctic
