PhD studentship, 'WRF/Chem modeling of volcanic ash and SO2', University
of Alaska Fairbanks.
Applicants are invited for a PhD position at the University of Alaska
Fairbanks starting mid 2011 as part of our volcanic ash modeling
efforts. The project aims at investigating the dispersion of volcanic
ash in the atmosphere using WRF/Chem. A variety of volcanic eruption
models are used to initialize WRF/Chem. The models will be verified
using case studies worldwide with the specific purpose to provide
improvements for the modeling basis of volcanic ash concentration
calculations. Methods will include model inter-comparison and testing of
satellite remote sensing algorithms; operational tools are developed to
support volcanic ash advisory centers.
The successful candidate will have a strong background in geophysics
with emphasis in atmospheric sciences and fluid dynamics. Excellent
programming skills are required.
To apply, please contact professors Martin Stuefer,
stuefer at gi.alaska.edu, or Peter Webley, pwebley at gi.alaska.edu.
