PhD student position in Sweden for remote sensing of currents

The research of the PhD student will be an important part of a project that aims to use satellite sensors to increase our understanding for ocean surface dynamics. Knowledge about ocean currents is essential for shipping and maritime activities, but also for our understanding of climate and eco systems. Ocean currents are highly complex and variable and are influenced by wind stress, waves, tidal forces, bathymetry etc. The best way to monitor the ocean surface currents over large areas is to use satellites sensors, but improvements of methods and algorithms are required to increase usefulness and resolution. Funding for the project is provided by the Swedish National Space Board (SNSB). For more information please see:
