Background (to top)
Ilker Fer, born in 1973 (Turkey), has completed his postdoc (Feb. 2004) at the Geophysical Institute, University of Bergen (UoB) under the NFR-funded project entitled "Boundary layer processes affecting dense water flow on a slope". He received his Ph.D. (2001) from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Lausanne through his dissertation entitled "Dynamics of winter cooling in Lake Geneva". He obtained his M.Sc. on hydraulics engineering (1997) from the Institute of Science and Technology, Technical University of Istanbul (ITU) after being graduated as a civil engineer (ITU, l995). He is also affiliated with the Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research (BCCR) and is presently the co-leader of the “Ocean-Ice-Atmosphere processes” BCCR research group.
Research Interests (to top)
Physical oceanography, including the boundary layer processes, dense water overflows, turbulence, fine and microstructure data acquisition and interpretation, newly-developing seismic reflection techniques to image oceanic finestructure, convective processes leading to dense water formation, turbulence in the under ice boundary layer, air-ice-sea interaction, internal waves and their non-linear interaction, turbulence parameterizations; Physical limnology, especially winter cooling dynamics, turbulence and convection.
