As a Research Physical Scientist, you will perform the following duties:
- Assist with oceanographic investigations centering on fluxes of energy, momentum and materials through the air-sea interface, the transport and composition (thermal and chemical) of ocean and coastal water masses and the structure and dynamical processes on the seafloor.
- Utilize research to improve understanding of environmental processes in coastal and open-ocean systems.
- Identify atmospheric and environmental problems caused by changes in atmospheric composition associated with natural and manufactured emissions.
- Assist with preparing data for presentation and dissemination at scientific conferences or meetings; or publication in scientific journals.
These duties are described at the full performance level of the ZP-4; the ZP-3 is developmental leading to such performance.
