DTC GEO 8 - Seasonality in Himalayan glacier dynamics

  • Full or part time
  • Application Deadline
    Applications accepted all year round
  • Self-Funded PhD Students Only
    Self-Funded PhD Students Only

Project Description

Glaciers in the Himalayas are gradually wasting away, and often present risks to local communities in the form of outburst floods. These glaciers feel a strong influence from the monsoon, yet we know little about their response to seasonal climate variations. Using the unprecedented availability of satellite radar images from Sentinel-1, this project will explore the seasonal dynamics of glaciers across the Himalayan range.

Entry requirements

Candidates must have a minimum of an upper second class honours degree or equivalent in a relevant subject, or an appropriate Master’s degree (with Merit). Informal enquiries are welcome by emailing the project supervisor.

For candidates whose first language is not English, we require IELTS 6.5 (with 6.0 in each component) or equivalent. Please visit our website for a list of acceptable English language tests. We prefer candidates to have already met the English Language requirements at the point of application, although this is not a requirement.
