The PhD project will make use of, and modify, existing tsunami propagation models, and analyse field data, to study 2 major tsunami events: the 2011 Tohoku Earthquake Tsunami and the Storrega Landslide Tsunami (ca. 8000 ka BP). The focus of the project is tsunami inundation and sediment dynamics. There are funds for field visits to Japan and international conference attendance. There is an annual tax free stipend of £13,726 and an additional stipend of £1,000 per year from the industrial partner – British Geological Survey. This is a 3.5 year PhD project.
