Checking of model results (both hazard and loss data) by comparison to existing flood maps and loss benchmarks.
Research into consistency between observed and modeled spatial patterns.
Key Duties for the Surge Modelling Positions
The development of high resolution coastal surge and waves simulations for inland inundation modeling.
The analysis of observations for the calibration and validation of inundation and defence failure.
A background in hydrology, meteorology, coastal oceanography, or similar, at MSc or above.
An analytical mindset and strong programming skills (e.g., Fortran, Python, R, scripting languages).
