I have this exciting PhD studentship opportunity available through the NERC ONE Planet DTP and applications for September 2021 entries are now open (Deadline is 18th January 2021).
In England, 3.2 million households are located in areas at risk of surface water flooding, with annual damages exceeding £300 million. It is projected that
this cost of associated damage could increase by 40% by the 2050s. Traditional ‘grey’ infrastructure for managing surface water, which has a sole purpose, removes water as quickly as possible through drains, gullies and sewers in a hidden way.
This PhD study will work with our Case Partner, Stantec, in collaboration with Northumbrian Water, maximizing current schemes and case studies, this project will explore approaches and tools to make the best decision. see more details @ https://research.ncl.ac.uk/one-planet/studentships/OP2121%20-%20Oliver%20Heidrich,%20'Is%20the%20future%20of%20urban%20drainage%20systems%20blue-green%20or%20grey'.pdf
