Jens Ehn

Assistant Professor

Department of Environment and Geography

Ph.D. University of Manitoba
M.Sc. University of Helsinki

Research Interests

Dr. Ehn is interested in understanding the many ways in which light from the sun impacts the Arctic marine environment, including sea ice melt, water column stability and biological production. Presently, his research focuses on:

  • Ocean-sea ice-atmosphere interactions, sea ice formation, melt and thermodynamics;
  • Biogeophysics of Arctic sea ice environments affecting light propagation, light-matter interactions, and particle dynamics;
  • Developing optical methods to infer physical, biological and chemical properties in ice and water.
