About the Project
In this project, you will develop a state-of-the-art coupled high resolution wave-sea ice model of the Arctic and North Atlantic, and determine the potential impacts of a changing future Arctic wave climate. In partnership with experts in the Met Office, future climate model projections will be coupled to a WAVEWATCH III model. You will learn wave and climate modelling techniques on high performance super-computers, applying these techniques to determine the future extreme wave climate in the North Atlantic. By propagating these projected changes through to impact on coastal processes and coastal communities, you will also explore the role of waves in ocean-atmosphere exchange, coastal resilience, and flood risk.
With experts from the National Oceanography Centre and Bangor University, you will be trained in extreme value theory and hydrodynamic modelling techniques. Your predicted changes to the extreme wave climate will be propagated through to societal impact using a suite of numerical modelling methodologies. For example, future changes to the available marine renewable energy resource, coastal flood risk, and coastal engineering design criteria, such as harbour walls, wind farms, and intensification of aquaculture.
Full studentships are available to UK and EU candidates who have been ordinarily resident in the UK throughout the 3-year period immediately preceding the date of an award. EU candidates who have not been resident in the UK for the last 3 years are eligible for "tuition fees-only" awards (no maintenance grant).
