About the Project
In this project, you will work with a world-leading team of glaciologists at Northumbria University to advance the understanding of these important processes. You will use data from recent calving events for a number of areas in Antarctica (Brunt, Pine Island, Larsen C) to test and improve the representation of calving in computer simulations. Training will be offered in glaciology and numerical modelling, and there will be an opportunity to attend summer schools in Svalbard and the Alps to gain further skills in glaciology and fieldwork. This project will be in collaboration with MSC software, a world leading provider of simulation software used extensively in the aerospace and automotive industries. You will be supported by expert developers at the company and will spend time working at MSC software where you will have the opportunity to apply their state of the art tools to glaciological problems. You will be encouraged to participate in UK and international scientific conferences to discuss with colleagues and to promote your research.
Your results will inform future model developments, with the overall aim to provide improved projections of Antarctic mass loss over the next decades to centuries.
