PhD student in mesoscale modeling with focus on the atmospheric water
vapor profile

Deadline May 22nd 2009

Applicants are invited for a PhD student position in the Meteorology
Program of the Wind Energy Division at Risoe¸ DTU. The Meteorology
Program is aimed at basic research in the fields of boundary layer
meteorology, assessment of wind resources for power generation and of
wind loads on turbines and various other structures.

The Ph.D. student will be employed in a research project concerning
the hydrological cycle and surface energy balance and their dependence
on land use and climate. He/she will work with a version of the
Advanced Research Weather Research and Forecasting model (ARW-WRF),
which will include a detailed treatment of the effects of vegetation
on the boundary layer.  Model results will be validated against
water-vapor profiles from satellite and radiosonde data as well as
boundary-layer wind speed data from remote sensing platforms. The
study area is the island of Zealand, Denmark. The study should
quantify feed-back effects from the atmosphere to the land surface on
annual basis and during extreme dry/wet conditions. Furthermore the
study will involve evaluation of how land use changes will affect
different aspects of the hydrological cycle and the boundary layer

Candidates should hold a master degree in meteorology/physics/
engineering/hydrology or similar educational level, and are expected
to have theoretical background in boundary layer
meteorology.  Knowledge on mesoscale modeling and data analysis of
atmospheric observations and satellite Earth observations are an
advantage.  We favor an open-minded and result-oriented person.
