Forwarded from CLIMLIST... Dynamics of Himalayan Glaciers from 30 years of Earth Observation The Institut de Physique du Globe de Strasbourg and the French National Center for Space Studies (CNES) are offering a PhD position to study Himalayan glaciers using Earth Observation datasets. Project Outline Climate warming over the 20th century has caused drastic changes in mountain glaciers globally, and of the Himalayan glaciers in particular. Recent controversies around the future of the Himalayan glaciers have highlighted the need for further studies of the past and present state of these glaciers. The candidate will use a 30-years archive of Earth Observation dataset (radar and optical sensors), as well as novel missions, to construct maps of change in glaciers’ properties and glaciers’ flow and to link these changes with climate variables. Governance The project is funded by the French National Centre for Space Studies (CNES) for 3 years. The work will be supervised by Noel Gourmelen at the Institut de Physique du Globe, University of Strasbourg, France and by Emmanuel Trouvé at the LISTIC, Polytech Annecy-Chambéry, France. The student will have the opportunity to join a field campaign in the Himalayas as part of this project. Required Qualifications The student should have a master, or equivalent, in fields related to Geophysics, Earth Sciences, Computer Science, Physics and Glaciology. Experience in the use of Earth Observation dataset and signal/image processing will be beneficial. To Apply Prospective candidates should contact Noel Gourmelen prior to March 16^th 2012. Final application will have to be made with the CNES by March 31^st . Work Environment For further details about the Institut de Physique du Globe of Strasbourg please see: <http://eost.unistra.fr/>.
