Borsa di dottorato - Trento

Si segnala la seguente borsa di dottorato presso il DICAM, Dipartimento di Ingegneria Civile, Ambientale e Meccanica dell’Università di Trento (corso di dottorato in Ingegneria Civile, Ambientale e Meccanica), avente quale referente Luigi Fraccarollo:
Airborne radar technology and entropy theory applied in laboratory and field sites to measure sediment-transport and its impact on bio-sensor activity.
The research deal with river monitoring, also including high events with sediment transport. It is foreseen the integrated use of advanced technology, among which bio-sensors (mussels), and eco-hydraulic modeling. The mussels, naturally exposed to hydro-morphological changes in their environment, will be tested through case studies in field and laboratory. The responses of organisms to well controlled hydraulic stressors, such as flow
velocity and depth, or moving sediments, will be detected. The target is to gain new insights on discharge monitoring and ecosystem-river processes. The doctoral activity will benefit of the collaboration with the partners of the Prin Project “Enterprising”, in which the expertise spans over contactless technology, fluvial and ecosystem processes.
