Funded MS student opportunity Formulation of dust and ash re-suspension sources in emission models About the project This student opportunity is a part of a 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, the Icelandic Met Office (IMO), and the UK MetOffice. The overall aim of this research project 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 for 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 forecasted and warnings issued. Role of the MS student Formulating source term for dust and ash re-suspension for the NAME model. The MS student will work on the implementation of an emission scheme particularly apt for Icelandic land coverage and climate, and to validate the code using a past event. The MS student will: Formulate code; working on selected test cases. Do backward numerical runs for quantifying the temporal changes of areal source from which re-suspension originates.
