OFFER DESCRIPTION

The Role

A critical component to the success of Terrain-AI is the implementation of a suite of model-based approaches to improve our understand of the exchanges of energy, water and gases that occur between the land surface and the atmosphere. This exciting role will focus on the implementation of a dynamical land surface model, incorporating multiple components, including: 1) the use of data integration/assimilation techniques, 2) the representation of biogeochemical and climate interactions, 3) the incorporation of dynamic land cover (e.g. vegetation) and land use (e.g. management activities), necessary to develop state of the art simulations of surface and sub-surface (e.g. soil moisture) fluxes across a range of land cover and land use types (e.g. grassland, cropland, forest, urban etc). The candidate, who will be joining a multi-disciplinary team, will work very closely with the broader land surface modelling team, and specifically the dynamical land surface modelling component in University College Dublin, as well as ecosystem, land use, soil and climate experts. The main objective of the role is to investigate the role of land cover, land-use and land management on biogeochemical fluxes of carbon, specifically, but also other relevant gases. The outputs from this research will provide a basis to inform and guide more sustainable land use management and provide an evidence base for policy formulation.
