Karen J. Heywood FRS is a Professor of Physical Oceanography at the University of East Anglia, UK. Karen was president of EGU’s Ocean Sciences division from 2016-2021. Can you tell us about your background and career path? I did a physics degree back in the early 1980’s, and then wanted to apply that to something in the environment – when I heard about oceanography it appealed to me straight ...[Read More]

Eurec4a: Tales from the Tropics

Eurec4a: Tales from the Tropics

As many seagoing oceanographers find themselves on land for the foreseeable future, we’ve decided to share a tale of a research cruise to fill that ship-shaped void. Back in January 2020, four research vessels ventured out into the Tropical North Atlantic as part of the Eurec4a and ATOMIC campaigns. Eurec4a’s aim: to investigate the couplings between clouds, circulation and convection ...[Read More]
