[Met-jobs] PhD studentship at the University of Iceland: Changes in aerosol particles and natural source material following volcanic eruptions
A PhD project is founded for 36 month at the University of Iceland (HI) in cooperation with the Icelandic Meteorological Office (IMO)
Changes in aerosol particles and natural source material following volcanic eruptions
About the project
This student opportunity is a part of a 3 year collaborative research project, called “Changes in the health effects impact of aerosol particles and natural source material following volcanic eruptions”, between the University of Iceland and the Icelandic Met Office (IMO).
The overall aim is to analyze sources of airborne particles from ash re-suspension events and dust storms with a view towards assessing the potential impacts of these events on air quality and human health. This project will allow better modeling of these events, both the distribution in space and time and particle size distribution, which is important since different particle sizes can have different health impacts. Therefore, poor air quality can be predicted and warnings be issued.
Deadline for application: 15 June 2015
