A New Hydrological Classification of UK Catchments - MScR in Global Environmental Challenges


Project Description

About the Project
We have recently developed a new database with physical, climatic and hydrological characteristics of over 1400 UK catchments. This database provides an exciting new opportunity to analyse and organize the diversity and similarity of UK catchments. This scientific advancement would offer new insights into UK hydrology, while also providing a first order hydrologic prediction model for water resource and environmental managers alike.

Why Choose this Opportunity
You will learn about hydrologic variability across the UK as well as how to work with large datasets.

About You
We are looking for a student interested in combining hydrologic understanding, statistics and the use of Matlab or R for big-data analysis.

About the programme
The Cabot Institute Masters by Research is a unique opportunity to work with a leading supervisor to deliver a one-year research project that you are passionate about. The programme will bring together exceptional students from all backgrounds with a common mission – protecting the planet and securing our future. As well as learning from your supervisor, you will learn from your fellow students; coming together to share your ideas and developing your problem-solving skills as part of an interdisciplinary team over the year. As well as being hosted within the Cabot Institute you will have a direct relationship within the relevant School for your research area, allowing you to fully take advantage of a wide-ranging research community.
Alongside your research project, you will benefit from a unique personal development and transferable skills training schedule. These unaccredited, optional events will give you the opportunity to come together with your peers to improve your research skills and develop an innovative approach to the global challenges we face today. You will also be encouraged to propose your own interests for a seminar series, giving you a unique platform to mould your studies and get involved directly with the programme. The training schedule will focus on:
• Interdisciplinarity & Collaboration
• Innovation & Enterprise
• Making your research a success
• Research communications
• Ignite your interests (your chance to propose ideas for a seminar series)
You will also gain access to the Cabot Institute’s network of experts across academia, government, business and industry via networking events. These opportunities will not only support your research, but give you the edge in your future career, whatever that may be.
