**************** PLEASE HELP TO DISSEMINATE TO OTHER MAILING LISTS*********************
A 2 year post-doctoral position has opened at the University of Bologna, Department of Physics and Astronomy, Group of Interdisciplinary Oceanography on the topic of:
Numerical modelling of coastal erosion and inundations in the Emilia Romagna coasts for nature based solutions
In the framework of the H2020 project Operandum, UNIBO is in charge for the study of sediment transport, coastal erosion and inundation for the Emilia- Romagna coasts in the present and future climate
in support of “nature based” solutions that will reduce the impacts on the coasts. The simulations will help to define:
2) the impact of indigenous seaweeds on the wave and currents thus changing the erosion and inundation regimes.
To this end, the oceanographic unstructured grid model SHYFEM (https://sites.google.com/site/shyfem/
1) a wave model (WW3 or SWAN);
2) a sediment transport model (already a SHYFEM module);
Two types of simulations should be carried out:
1) simulations of coastal erosion and inundation for the present climate (2010- 2020)
The simulations will be repeated in both periods with and without the model of benthic seaweeds.
Details of the application are given here:
Deadline is February 1, 2019. To submit an application please use:
