Dr Joanne Hopkins

Co-investigator, National Oceanography Centre (NOC)

Jo Hopkins is a physical oceanographer, based at the National Oceanography Centre, and specialises in shelf sea dynamics.

She uses a combination of ship-based observations, moored and autonomous platforms, remote sensing and modelling approaches to understand how the physical environment helps shape and sustain productivity, carbon and nutrient cycling within shelf sea ecosystems.

Recent work has focused on shelf edge exchange processes and transports, fresh water plumes, spring bloom dynamics, internal tide and near-inertial interactions, shelf- and seasonal-scale circulations.

Jo is a co-investigator in the ARISE and PEANUTS projects.
