PhD vacancy Salt-accumulation at floodgates and salt-water intrusion in rivers, UTwente

Application deadline: when a suitable candidate is found

In this PhD-project, an integral part of the NWO funded SALTISolutions programme, you will study how salt accumulates behind the floodgates of the Rhine-Meuse Delta and how salt water and fresh water interact, with emphasis on inland propagation of near bed salt water plume during low flow periods. New field data in combination with numerical simulations will aid decision makers to effectively manage the scarce freshwater during periods of drought.
