In 2017 I was employed as a researcher on the NERC funded TICTOC project, using observations of transient tracers made on several research cruises to understand more about where the ocean takes up heat from the atmosphere and how it is redistributed via ocean currents. I started on another NERC funded project in 2019 named BLT recipes, specifically studying bottom boundary layer turbulence via a tracer release method; where long-lived chemical tracer will be released and subsequently sampled on future research cruises.
