About the Project
The student will use satellite observations to investigate the global variability of volcanic SO2 plumes in relation to air travel routes. Exposure databases will be used to assess the relation between reported exposures to those expected from these investigations. Dispersion modelling will be used to explore the impact of changing travel routes and emission variability.
Fieldwork is envisaged within the project, but initially it will be desk-based, meaning it is possible to start, despite any continuing COVID-19 lockdown.
The student will be based in the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences at the University of Manchester, supervised by Dr. Cat Hayer and Prof. Mike Burton. BGS co-supervisors are Prof Sue Loughlin and Dr Sam Engwell. The student will also participate in the NERC-funded project V-PLUS.
