Lillina is completing her MSc in biogeochemistry with SOCCO. Her research focuses on assessing uncertainties resulting from the use of various mathematical models used to derive rates of primary production by means of fast repetition rate fluorometry (FRRf), a chlorophyll fluorescence technique, and determining the dominant ecological drivers of variability in key photophysiological parameters. SheRead More..
Dr Thulwaneng Mashifane is a Biogeochemical Model Developer at the Southern Ocean Carbon and Climate Observatory (SOCCO) within the CSIR. His current research at SOCCO aims to improve parameterisations of physiological processes for phytoplankton in coupled physical-biogeochemical models. This involves using the coupled one to multi-dimensional models configured on the Centre for High-Performance Computing (CHPC)Read More..
