The National Institute of Oceanography and Applied Geophysics (OGS) are seeking a PhD candidate for a the project 'Fluctuating Air-Sea Interaction in the North Adriatic Sea from Observations and Models'.
The purpose of the project is to further our knowledge of air-sea interaction based on the synergy of the theoretical developments performed in LEGI (Grenoble) and the expertise in and facilities of ocean observation of OGS. To this end we apply the developed concepts from non-equilibrium statistical mechanics to in-situ measurements in the Gulf of Trieste. The data used are mainly surface horizontal currents collected in the Gulf of Trieste by means of a High Frequency radar (HF-radar) positioned in Piran (Slovenia, owned by ARSO) and in Aurisina (Italy, owned by OGS). The wind data used are the output of the COSMO model.
