Rebecca Jackson

I am currently a NOAA Climate and Global Change postdoc fellow at Oregon State University in the College of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences.  I did my PhD in physical oceanography in the MIT-WHOI Joint Program, working with Dr. Fiamma Straneo.  

I study the interaction between the ocean and the cryosphere. In particular, my current research focuses on the circulation and heat transport in fjords where glaciers from the Greenland Ice Sheet meet the ocean. 

My research interests include coastal physical oceanography, polar oceanography, and ocean-glacier interactions. See Research section for further details.
