President’s Award PhD Studentship available, Public Perception of the Risks of Future Sea Level Change in the Severn Estuary
3rd April 2012
As the impacts of climate change begin to be felt in the UK and throughout the world a critical issue will be the response of affected communities to increasing levels of risk. Within the Severn Estuary area a number of communities will face increasing climate related risks during the next 90 years, from the combined impacts of sea level change and the more extreme weather projected for the South Western region of Great Britain.
This PhD will examine public risk perception in respect of sea level change, and factors affecting it, amongst communities in the Severn Estuary and Inner Bristol Channel region.
Closing date: 30 April, 2012
Start date: 1 October 2012
