PhD Fellow in Remote Sensing of Produced Water

Department of Physics and Technology, The Arctic University of Norway (UIT), Tromsø, Norway
Deadline: September 2, 2020

Beyond being a potential risk for marine life around oil platforms, observations and simulations of films from produced water releases can be used to improve understanding of the fate of thin oil films in general. The ultimate goal is to develop algorithms from remote sensing data to separate between releases with a raised oil volumetric fraction or increased droplet size. The research aims to develop information retrieval algorithms of produced water characteristics from SAR and optical measurements.

Requirements Include:

  • Norwegian Master’s degree, or a corresponding foreign Master’s degree recognised as equivalent to a Norwegian Master’s degree, in applied physics, mathematics, statistics, or other relevant disciplines.
  • Experience with remote sensing data analysis (SAR and/or optical)
  • Background in signal and image processing
  • Good skills in programming and English language
