We seek a PhD student for a project that will refine and integrate models of glacial isostatic adjustment (GIA) in southeastern Alaska and western Canada. GNSS measurements, paleo sea-level measurements, tide gauge observations, and satellite
imagery will be used to constrain a GIA model that will lead to a better understanding of properties of the Earth and complex regional crustal motions. The project will be supervised by Dr. Julie Elliott (Purdue University) and Dr. Thomas James (Geological
Survey of Canada and School of Earth and Ocean Sciences, University of Victoria).
