New Teagasc PhD opporutniy in Remote Sensing

A Teagasc Walsh Fellowship is available, deadline for applications is June 30th.

The 4 year structured PhD Fellowship is a joint research project between the Department of AgrifoodBusiness and Spatial Analysis, REDP, Teagasc (Ashtown), Maynooth University Department of Geography, Maynooth University, and the Department of Geography, University College Dublin. The student will be co-located between Teagasc Ashtown, Dublin and Maynooth University and will be registered at Maynooth University. The student will be working under the supervision of Rowan Fealy (MU) and Stuart Green (Teagasc).

The proposed research will establish a methodology for utilising rainfall radar, in combination with MetÉireann’s precipitation gauge network, to develop high spatio-temporal resolution, near real-time rainfall estimates for Ireland. An analysis of the rainfall radar will also be undertaken with available satellite data (eg. METEOSAT; Sentinel 1a/b). The results will provide a robust basis for developing real time,
local rainfall estimates that coupled with the Teagasc Nutrient Management Planning decision support system (NMP Online) can inform timing of fertiliser applications.
