Two year MSc Studentship
Project title: Aggregate Potential of Irish South Coast Offshore Palaeovalleys (AggrePOP)
The School of Biological, Earth and Environmental Science, University College Cork, are seeking an MSc by Research candidate within the Raw Materials Spoke of Irish Centre for Research in Applied Geosciences (iCRAG). The successful candidate will be based at UCC in the Marine Geology group and will work with academics and researchers in iCRAG partner institutions.
The MSc will delimit and quantify (resource location, thickness and quality) marine aggregate resources off the south coast of Ireland. Geophysical data (collected and new) will enable generic resource development models generation and volumetric estimates. Aggregate quality will be appraised through the determination of physical properties (grain size, grain shape, grain surface texture).
