Minimize PhD - Mapping, monitoring and characterising landslides with satellite radar and optical observations

Date added: 12 February 2018

Application deadline: 28 February 2018

Organisation: FindAPhD on behalf of Newcastle University

Landslides represent one of the major natural hazards faced by society and can be triggered by a range of factors including earthquakes, rainfall and water level changes.

The principal aims of this project are therefore:

  1. to develop satellite radar/optical image processing methodologies appropriate for landslide detection and mapping,
  2. to monitor and characterise active landslides, and
  3. to evaluate the potential of SAR for the assessment of future landslide hazard.

It provides an exciting framework to develop tools that will be of great benefit to society and 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.
