Information about sea level is essential for climate change studies as well as for ship traffic and human safety. Accurate sea level observations using radar measurements from space have been available by satellite altimetry for nearly two decades enabling accurate monitoring of sea level changes. The PhD study will focus on studies of regional sea level changes derived from satellite altimetry and the impact on sea level monitoring in coastal and ice-covered regions through improved recovery of accurate sea level information. Existing satellite altimetry data degrades rapidly in coastal or ice-covered regions and more tolerant interpretation techniques must be developed to investigate sea level changes in these regions. New satellite instruments are being launched (Cryosat II and Sentinel-3) and methods must be developed for usage of these new data.
Candidates should hold a M. Sc degree or equivalent academic qualifications. Preference will be given to candidates who can document skills in areas such as physical oceanography, geodesy and remote sensing. Furthermore, English proficiency is essential.
