AMT provides excellent opportunities for the next generation of oceanographers and has contributed to more than 100 PhD studies. The programme also hosts the POGO-AMT fellowship. The fellowship enables students and early career scientists from developing countries to take part in an AMT cruise.
This is a fantastic opportunity to gain hands-on training and experience within an internationally renowned scientific programme. See the POGO website for more information on the fellowship and application criteria.
When asked what the best thing she has done so far in her career, MRes studentKerri has said it was her participation in an AMT cruise, which she described asan "amazing experience".
“Being on the AMT cruise is like being in an atmosphere-ocean interaction class – withthe subject of my training as my special project and with the other components of the programme as other topics comprising the course. This is the most extensive study onthe biogeochemistry of the surface oceans that I know of and it’s amazing how the components of the programme are interrelated”.
