Landslides represent one of the major natural hazards faced by society. They and can be triggered by a range of factors including earthquakes, rainfall and water level changes. The principal aims of this project are:
This project provides an exciting framework to develop tools that will be of great benefit to society. It will enable the successful candidate to work in a rapidly developing scientific environment.
There are great opportunities to collaborate with research colleagues in one of our current areas of interest, focusing on East and South Asia, e.g. China, India and Nepal. The specific objectives of this studentship can be refined according to the student’s background and interests.
This studentship is jointly funded by the NERC Centre for the Observation and Modelling of Earthquakes, Volcanoes and Tectonics(COMET) and British Geological Survey (BGS).
The student will be hosted within the Geomatics research group in the School Engineering at Newcastle University and the Earth Observation group at BGS. The student will benefit from the shared expertise of Geosciences staff in several research institutions and will attend regular meetings where the research of these various groups is presented and discussed.
There will be an opportunity to travel to national and international scientific meetings to present research results. We aim to see all students publish two to three papers in leading scientific journals during their PhD.
Upon completion, the student will be well equipped for a career in academia or industry.
