Glacier Modeller

Страна: Великобритания;

Город: Cambridge

Добавлена: 15.06.2015

Работодатель: BAS - British Antarctic Survey

Тип: PhD position;

Для кого: For researchers;


Based within the IceSheet program at our Cambridge office you will be a part of a team working on the NERC project ‘Ice shelves in a warming world: Filchner Ice Shelf system, Antarctica’.

You will use state-of-the art numerical flow models to simulate the effect of ocean ties on ice-stream flow and to determine the mechanical interaction between floating and grounded ice. Your modelling work will aim at determining the nature of basal control on ice flow upstream from the grounding line. In addition to the modelling work, you will be responsible for preparing and doing field observations in Antarctica, collecting GPS data on ice-stream and ice-shelf motion. You will use the data collected to validate your numerical model and to test hypothesis about basal sliding.


You will have a Ph.D in the earth sciences (for example glaciology, oceanography), physics or mathematics, some prior experience in running numerical models, and good programming skills (for example Matlab or Python).
