Doctor of Sciences in Physics and Mathematics (1990).

Head of Laboratory of Hydrological Processes at the Shirshov Institute of Oceanology (1993).

Eugene Morozov has been working at the Shirshov Institute since 1970.

The main fields of his research are internal waves and ocean circulation. He is a field oceanographer, and his work includes field measurements, data collecting, processing and analysis. The main result of his research is discovery of the fact that the main source of internal tide generation is interaction between the barotropic tide and submarine ridges. Previously it was considered that the major generation occurs over continental slopes. He constructed a chart of internal tide amplitudes in the World Ocean. He found that approximately a quarter of the barotropic energy dissipation is spent on the generation of internal tides over submarine ridges. These results were published in: E. Morozov, Semidiurnal internal wave global field, Deep-Sea Research, vol. 42, No 1, 1995, 135-148.

The recent scientific activity of E. Morozov is related to the flows in the abyssal channels of the Atlantic: Vema Channel, Romanche and Chain fracture zones, Kane Gap, Vema Fracture Zone, and others. These results were published in: E. Morozov, A. Demidov, R. Tarakanov, W. Zenk, Abyssal Channels in the Atlantic Ocean: Water Structure and Flows, Springer, 2010. Eugene Morozov is the author of 218 publications including four books.

Since 1969 E. Morozov participated in 47 cruises on research vessels in the ocean including 35 cruises in the Atlantic, 4 cruises in the Indian, 4 cruises in the Pacific, 4 cruises in the Southern and one cruise in the Arctic Ocean. In many of them he was the leading scientist. He also participated in 15 coastal expeditions.

Eugene Morozov gave enormous number of scientific presentations at the Assemblies of the IUGG and IAPSO, European Geoscience Union, Asia Oceania Geoscience Society, Ocean Science meeting, institutes in the USA, Canada, Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay, Chile, Norway, United Kingdom, South Africa, Madagascar, Germany, Netherlands, Spain, France, Italy, China, Australia, New Zealand, Austria, and others. He convened many symposia of International scientific assemblies.

In 1999, Eugene Morozov was elected a member of the IAPSO Executive. In 2003, he was elected for the second term. In 2007, he was elected a vice-president of the IAPSO. In 2011-2015 he was the President of the IAPSO (http://iapso.iugg.org/). He became the first Russian President of the IAPSO. He was also a member of the IUGG Executive Committee and SCOR Executive Committee. He is the Chairman of the Oceanographic Section at the Russian National Geophysical Committee, which is a Russian link to the IUGG.

Dr. Morozov is a member of the editorial boards of three journals: Izvestia Atmospheric and Oceanic Physics (http://www.maik.ru/ru/journal/fizatm/), Russian Journal of Earth Sciences (http://rjes.wdcb.ru/), Fundamental and Applied Hydrophysics (http://hydrophysics.info/).
