Phd project: Iceberg drift estimation and forecast.

Main Supervisor: Lars Imsland

Co-supervisor: Francesco Scibilia, Sveinung Løset, Tor Arne Johansen

PhD Project Objective: Operational iceberg drift prediction algorithms have available only limited information. It is therefore paramount to make an optimum use of measurements available together with suitable mathematical models. My goal is to investigate possible improved drift estimations and predictions by using optimization algorithms and techniques from control theory.

Background: I have a Bachelor of Science in mechanical engineering and a Master of Science in chemical/process engineering from the RWTH Aachen.
