PhD Position: New techniques to monitor the evolution of coastal hazard from space – Deadline 09 January 2022

Background Coastal flood and erosion risk is a global issue influencing communities and critical infrastructure. To assess present and future coastal hazards due to rising sea level, storm surge, waves and beach level change, coastal managers are more commonly applying coastal vulnerability indices (e.g., Jevrejeva et al., 2020). These tools reply on numerical modelling of […]

PhD Position: Ice to Iron: Satellite Remote Sensing of suspended glacial sediments in the Southern Ocean – Deadline 09 January 2022

Project summary This project will test the capability of satellite Earth observation (EO) to detect, map and quantify glacial suspended marine sediments from marine terminating glaciers in the Southern Ocean. Background The Southern Ocean is characterized by high nutrient low chlorophyll waters. The main limiting factor in primary production is the supply of Fe and […]

PhD Position: Investigating the influence of meltwater runoff and near-terminus subglacial hydrology on the dynamics of Greenland’s marine-terminating glacier margins – Deadline 09 January 2022

Project summary This project will investigate the influence of meltwater runoff and near-terminus subglacial hydrology on the dynamic stability of marine-terminating glaciers draining the Greenland Ice Sheet. Background The greatest store of fresh water in the northern hemisphere is held within the Greenland Ice Sheet (GrIS). Over recent decades, the ice sheet’s rate of mass […]

PhD Position: The stability of Greenland’s last remaining ice shelves in a warming climate – Deadline 09 January 2022

Background The Greenland Ice Sheet has lost over 4 trillion tonnes of ice since 1992, making Greenland a major contributor to global sea level rise. Yet poor understanding of the physical processes driving ice loss hampers our ability to make future sea level projections. Driven by this need, this project will combine earth observation, advanced […]

PhD Position: Will jammed icebergs reduce the sensitivity of the Greenland Ice Sheet to climate change? – Deadline 06 January 2022

Summary Greenland’s largest glaciers are held back by jammed icebergs at their fronts. This exciting project will study how melting of these icebergs influences the stability of the Greenland Ice Sheet. Project background The Greenland Ice Sheet has lost over 4 trillion tonnes of ice since 1992, with 2019 seeing the largest loss on contemporary […]
