Mohamed Ahmed
Doctoral Student
University of Calgary

Mohamed is a second-year Ph.D. student studying carbon cycling in the Arctic Ocean under the supervision of Dr. Brent Else at the University of Calgary. Mohamed got his BSc degree in Geology from Egypt. Then, he completed his master degree in Geomatics from Lund University in Sweden where his master?s project focused on the relationship between soil moisture and vegetation dynamics across the Sahel region in Africa by combining satellite remote sensing and field measurements. Mohamed joined the Geography Department in UofC as a Ph.D. student on May 2015 after finding the amazing opportunity with Dr. Brent Else to visit/study the Arctic. His Ph.D. project is focusing on air-sea CO2 exchange processes in the polar seas and the advantages of using remote sensing techniques in oceanography. During 2016 summer, he spent six weeks onboard of the CCGS Amundsen icebreaker in the Arctic Ocean studying the air-sea CO2 exchange processes from the water column to the atmosphere. Mohamed has a good experience in remote sensing and GIS applications, climate-change impacts, biogeochemistry and sea- atmosphere interactions
