Fully-funded PhD Studentship: Modelling circulation within glacial fjords in south-east Greenland: Implications for sea-level rise predictions from the Greenland Ice Sheet

The College of Science at Swansea University invites applications for a 3-year fully-funded PhD in the field of Glaciology.

Project Information:
This PhD is to develop models of circulation within two glacial fjords in south-east Greenland and to use these models together with field data to identify the key physical processes operating and test hypotheses of heat delivery to the glacier front margins. The student will concentrate on scientific applications based within the Glaciology Group and will work closely within a supervisory team crossing engineering and glaciology. A companion studentship based in engineering will concentrate on methods and model development.
