About the Project
Dynamics of the drainage system will be investigated within the highly topical and inter-disciplinary framework of dispersive hydrodynamics, dedicated to fluid-like dynamics of nonlinear waves with applications ranging from the atmosphere to quantum fluids. Dispersive hydrodynamics has proven efficient in the description of extreme events in geophysical applications, such as tsunami waves and rogue waves in the ocean. The project will utilise field knowledge of sub and englacial jökulhlaup pathways and flow rheology to constrain mathematical models. The student will learn nonlinear analytical techniques for partial differential equations such as the wave modulation theory as well as advanced numerical methods for dispersive hydrodynamics. They will also have the opportunity to test mathematical predictions using primary and secondary datasets of Icelandic jökulhlaup systems with Andy Russell (Newcastle University).
