M.Sc. Candidate
McGill University

Supersivors: Bruno Tremblay

Starting date: September 2016

Research topic: Oceanic Heat transport in the North Atlantic and its relation to sea-ice levels in the Arctic. Bimochan is looking at the effects of atmospheric wind on the partitioning of heat flow among different ocean gates between the Atlantic and the Arctic.

Progress update: Bimochan is currently working on correlating the vorticity input from surface wind stress in different regions in the North Atlantic with the heat partitioning.
