Bill Savidge at the Skidaway Institute of Oceanography at the University of George is looking to hire 3-4 summer undergrad interns to work on a lab and modeling project on fluid exchange in permeable sediments. A little translation: "fluid exchange in permeable sediments" means the exchange of ocean water and sub-seafloor porewater back and forth across the seafloor due to processes like currents and density gradients. These processes move a lot of water around on continental shelves, with important biogeochemical consequences, and there's a lot still to learn about this. He's looking for students with strong math and computational skills (a course in linear algebra would be helpful and facility with MATLAB is essential). For more information contact Bill directly,
This is going to be a great project, and Skidaway is a great place to hang out for the summer.
