Dr Sian Henley

Co-investigator, University of Edinburgh

Sian Henley is a NERC Independent Research Fellow currently based at the University of Edinburgh.

Sian is a marine biogeochemist with a penchant for nutrient cycling in the polar oceans and how nutrient cycles are changing in response to climate and environmental change, and the feedbacks of those nutrient cycle changes on the climate system.

Most of Sian’s polar research has focused on Antarctica, with in situ observations of nutrients and their isotopic compositions in seawater, sea ice, glacial ice and sediments forming the backbone of her work.

Sian is excited about applying and adapting her skills learned in the Antarctic to the rapidly changing Arctic Ocean as part of both the Arctic PRIZE and ChAOS projects.
