PhD position in multi-scale modeling of sea ice deformation

We are looking for a doctoral student to work multi-scale modeling of sea ice deformation on numerical modeling of ridging of sea ice by using discrete element method. Large-scale continuum models are typically used to study ice behavior with a resolution of some tens of kilometers. These models do not accurately describe small-scale processes related to deformation and failure of ice. In such models, the ice properties, such as compressive strength are tuned so that the models to present observed ice behavior. Predictive power of the models suffers from this.
