Adriana Maria dos Santos Ferreira

PhD Student

I obtained the master degree in Surveying Engineering at the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Porto. At the moment, I am enrolled in a Doctorate Degree in the same institution. My project title is “Mixing and transport of material at small ocean scales: a lagrangian approach”. My main interests are high frequency ocean phenomena, as internal waves that occur in the ocean and can have a strong impact in the Earth´s climate (due to vertical mixing). For that, I am using Satellite Remote Sensing tools as Radar Altimetry, Sea Surface Temperature, Ocean Colour, SAR imaging, and recently numerical models.
