On this self-funded PhD programme, you'll measure the nature and rates of erosion on rocky coasts, to get a better understanding of erosion risks.

It is supervised by Dr Robert Inkpen, Reader in Physical Geography, and academic lead for Geoconservation and Heritage in the Centre for Applied Geosciences.

The work will include:

  • measuring the nature and rates of erosion on rocky coasts
  • modelling them in context of different environmental parameters, such as wave regimes and climate
  • modelling rates of change and platform evolution to get a better understanding of the temporal and spatial variability of erosion risks

Staff web pages also provide more information on individual research interests and the specific projects that staff members have recently undertaken http://www.port.ac.uk/department-of-geography/staff/
