Carine van der Boog

Carine is a PhD candidate at Delft University of Technology. Her research focusses on mesoscale anticyclonic eddies in the Caribbean Sea. The aim is to understand the dynamics of these eddies and how they affect the local weather and climate. Both observations and models are combined to study the formation and intensification processes of the anticyclones. More information on recent findings can be found below. 

 

Carine has obtained her master’s degree in Civil Engineering and Geosciences at Delft University of Technology. During her master research she studied the sinking of dense water masses in the Labrador Sea in an idealized setting.
