Kinne, Kylie

Student SIO - PhD

I am a PhD student in physical oceanography working with Dr. Fiamma Straneo and Dr. Lia Siegelman. I study how icebergs affect fjord circulation both as sources of buoyancy and as mechanical barriers to flow. I’m also interested in the way that glacially-modified water exits fjords and participates in the large-scale overturning circulation. My research uses field observations from Sermilik fjord in combination with numerical modeling techniques.
