Forwarded from CLIMLIST... PhD position at the University of Alaska Fairbanks Applicants are invited for a funded PhD position starting in fall 2011 as part of our volcanic ash modeling efforts. The project aims at investigating the dispersion of volcanic ash in the atmosphere using the Weather Research and Forecast Model with inline Chemistry (WRF/Chem). A variety of volcanic eruption models are used to initialize WRF/Chem. The models will be verified using case studies worldwide with the specific purpose to provide improvements for the modeling basis of volcanic ash concentration calculations. Methods will include model inter-comparison and testing of satellite remote sensing algorithms; operational tools are developed to support volcanic ash advisory centers. The successful candidate will have a strong background in geophysics with emphasis in atmospheric sciences and fluid dynamics. Excellent programming skills are required. Interested applicants are welcome to contact professors Martin Stuefer, <email@example.com>, or Peter Webley, <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
