A NERC funded Envision PhD project at Bangor University (School of Ocean Sciences, http://www.bangor.ac.uk/oceansciences/), investigating the Far-Field Implications of Future Sea Ice Extent on the Wave Climate.
In partnership with experts in the Met Office, future climate model projections will be coupled to a wave model to determine the future extreme wave climate in the North Atlantic. By propagating these projected changes through to impact on coastal processes and coastal communities, you will also explore the role of waves in ocean-atmosphere exchange, coastal resilience, and flood risk. With experts from the National Oceanography Centre and Bangor University, you will be trained in extreme value theory and hydrodynamic modelling techniques. Your predicted changes to the extreme wave climate will be propagated through to societal impact using a suite of numerical modelling methodologies. For example, future changes to the available marine renewable energy resource, coastal flood risk, and coastal engineering design criteria, such as harbour walls, wind farms, and intensification of aquaculture.
Applicants should hold a minimum of a UK Honours Degree at 2:1 level or equivalent in subjects such as Physics, Mathematics, Oceanography, Meteorology, Civil Engineering or Geography.
Deadline for applications is 13th Jan.
