Portrait of Sabine Mecking

Sabine Mecking

Affiliate Assistant Professor


Working on:
Sabine Mecking's research interests are in interdisciplinary oceanography involving large-scale ocean circulation, ocean mixing, tracers, biogeochemical cycling, and thermocline ventilation. One particular focus is how these processes are affected by decadal-scale climate variability and how they relate to the uptake and storage of carbon in the ocean. Her work involves participation in hydrographic cruises, data analysis, and combining data with general circulation models through collaboration with modelers. Mecking joined the Applied Physics Laboratory in 2006, and is an affiliate assistant professor of oceanography.
