About the Author
Daniela Flocco studied Environmental Sciences, majoring in oceanography at the “Universita’ Parthenope” in Naples, Italy. She earned her PhD with a thesis on the geophysics of Antarctic coastal polynyas and their impact on dense water production based on her studies at the Scott Polar Research Institute and the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics at the University of Cambridge.
Since then she has been working at University College London on the thermodynamics of sea ice focusing on the role of melt ponds on the enhanced thinning rate of Arctic sea ice. She has worked on the inclusion of the physics of melt ponds in one of the sea ice models used within the IPCC.
She is now working as a research assistant in the Meteorology Department at the University of Reading.
