Institute of Engineering Surveying & Space Geodesy (IESSG)

Fully funded PhD Studentship

Use of PSI for the Enhancement of Vertical Land Movement Measurements at 
Tide Gauges in the UK

Applications are invited for a full-time PhD Studentship to investigate 
the ‘Use of PSI for the Enhancement of Vertical Land Movement Measurements 
at Tide Gauges in the UK’.  The project, which is funded by the Natural 
Environment Research Council (NERC), aims to investigate how a remote 
sensing technique called Persistent Scatterer Interferometry (PSI) can 
produce information relating to the relative changes in land level around 
the coast of the UK.  This will be used in conjunction with an existing 
network of GPS and Absolute Gravity stations in order to help to obtain a 
picture of the average change in sea level around the coast of Great 
Britain which may be due to climate change.

The student will examine areas around 10 tide gauges using all available 
interferometric observations from 1997 to the present day.  An additional 
element of the work will be the investigation of the use of artificial 
Corner Reflectors (CR) for future use at tide gauges through an analysis 
of an existing CR network in Nottinghamshire.

The student will be jointly supervised by staff from the IESSG at the 
University of Nottingham, the British Geological Survey (BGS) and the 
Proudman Oceanographic Laboratory (POL), with day-to-day supervision 
provided by the IESSG.  The student will be able to build on the work of 
other researchers in this area using PSI software developed by the IESSG 
and freely available software such as STaMPS.  Commercially available 
software such as GAMMA will be available for comparison through BGS.

Students should have, or expect to obtain, at least a 2.1 undergraduate 
degree in surveying, mathematics, earth sciences and geophysics or a 
related numerate discipline.  Experience in computer programming and 
satellite remote sensing will be an advantage.

This studentship provides a maintenance allowance rising from £16,000 per 
annum for 3 years – please note that this is tax free.  It also covers 
tuition fees and an allowance for the additional costs of supporting the 
research work – travel to conferences, IT equipment, books etc.  Due to 
funding restrictions, students must be UK or EU citizens who have been 
resident in the UK for the last 3 years.  For full details of eligibility, 
please refer to the NERC Student Handbook (see: 
http://www.nerc.ac.uk/funding/application/studentships/).

Informal enquiries may be addressed to Dr A Sowter, Email:

Applications, with a detailed CV and the names and addresses of two 
referees, should be sent to Dr A Sowter, Institute of Engineering 
Surveying and Space Geodesy, School of Civil Engineering, The University 
of Nottingham, University Park, Nottingham, NG7 2RD.  Email: 
[log in to unmask]  Please quote ref. ENG/199.  Closing date: 
2 June 2008.

Students are also asked to complete the University’s standard postgraduate 
application form (see: https://pgapps.nottingham.ac.uk/) and the NERC 
studentship application form (see: 
http://www.nerc.ac.uk/funding/application/studentships/studenteligibility.d
oc).
