Eugene Morozov is Head of the Laboratory of Hydrological Processes at the Shirshov Institute of Oceanology in Moscow (Russia). He has been working at this Institute since graduating from the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology in 1970. His research focuses on oceanic internal waves and large-scale circulation of the ocean. He is a field oceanographer and a specialist in observations in the open ocean. He works on data acquisition, data processing, interpretations, and partly numerical modeling. His interests are in the interaction of the ocean water and glaciers descending to the fjords, and since 2002 he has been investigating the abyssal flows in the Atlantic Ocean and abyssal circulation, especially in the flows in the deep fractures, and since 2008, he has been also working on the problems of Arctic oceanography in cooperation with scientists from the University Centre in Svalbard.
During his oceanographic career Dr Morozov has participated in 44 long expeditions in all oceans of the globe and in 15 coastal expeditions. His field work is related to internal tides and currents in the ocean, such as the Gulf Stream, Kuroshio Current and its rings, Antarctic Circumpolar Current, Falkland Current, California Current, and equatorial countercurrents in the Indian and Atlantic oceans.
He was a guest scientist at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (USA), Netherlands Institute for Sea Research, Universidad Complutense de Madrid (Spain), University Center in Svalbard, Universidad de Buenos Aires, Universidad de Montevideo, Arizona State University (USA), Florida State University (USA), the University of Victoria (Canada), and the University of Cape Town.
In 1999 he became a member of the Executive Committee of the International Association for the Physical Sciences of the Ocean (IAPSO), and from 2011 to 2015 he was the President of this association. He was also a member of the Executive Committee of the International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics (IUGG) and a member of the Executive Committee of the Scientific Council on Oceanic Research (SCOR).
