A new PhD position was funded and the application procedure is expected to start soon. The position will be part of the NOW funded project SANDBOX: Smart and sustainable design for offshore operations in a sandy seabed.
The topic of the PhD project is modelling coupled geomorphologic-biologic evolution of offshore sandwaves. The task of this PhD is to come up with an idealised mathematical model for sandwaves coupled with benthic organisms giving insight in dynamics of the coupled system, as well as a more complex numerical coupled model to be applied in practical cases, e.g. sandmining or the design of pipeline trajectories.
