Studying Ocean Dynamics in Polar Regions

Guest: Jhon Mojica Moncada, Polar Oceanographer, Center for Global Sea Level Change at NYUAD

In this fall series of podcasts, we introduce some of the winners and general entrants from the 2020 Teledyne Marine Photo Contest. Teledyne's annual Photo/ Data Contest concluded with over 80 qualified submissions that helped the company donate over $1200 to Save the Children as part of a charitable giving campaign.

​In this final episode of the Teledyne Marine Photo Contest series, we chat with Jhon Mojica, a polar oceanographer from the Center for Global Sea Level Change at New York University in Abu Dhabi. Jhon submitted two images of a mooring deployment that incorporated a Benthos R2K Acoustic Release. Jhon's research work focuses on ocean dynamics in polar regions and interactions with ice shelves, characterizing the effects of sea-level rise in coastal cities such as Abu Dhabi.
