Call for Application: UTM Postdoctoral Fellowship Scheme

Dear Potential Postdoctoral Researchers,

I am extending this invitation to a highly esteemed postdoctoral candidate who may be interested in working with us on a topic related to sea level rise over the Asian sea from a satellite radar altimeter.

Project Summary

This project aims to measure the sea level rise (SLR) over the marginal seas of the South China Sea (SCS) by considering vertical land motion (VLM). The SLR from anthropogenic climate change is an increasing concern for the international community and especially for coastal States (i.e., China, Malaysia, Taiwan, Indo-China, Indonesia etc). The prospect of whole islands disappearing under rising waters raises serious questions as to the impact upon maritime jurisdiction and the ability of the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea to deal with the inundation of large areas of territory.

This project comprises two main sub-projects. The sub-project 1 aims to provide the VLM that could significantly contribute to the local SLR. The land movements from INSAR and Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) observations have played an important role in addressing the VLM nearshore. The sub-project 2 aims to estimate the SLR using the long time series datasets (since 1992). The input from sub-project 1 (VLM) is considered in the SLR estimation to account for the relative SLR.

Feel free to contact me for further details.
