The Department of
Earth and Environmental Science at Temple University seeks motivated students interested
in pursuing PhD (Geosciences) or MS (Geology).
Low Impact Solar
Development: This project will explore
the feasibility of agricultural/range co-location opportunities at multiple
test sites (in US, Indonesia and India), by providing foundational field-level data
and quantitative analysis on cost reduction opportunities. This project will
provide critical data on microclimate, hydrology, soil processes, vegetation
community composition and economics to inform developers, landowners, and state
agencies to facilitate widespread deployment. The student will be advised by
Sujith Ravi (Temple University, PA https://ift.tt/1CwQWax) and will work in close collaboration with Jordan Macknick
(National Renewable Energy Laboratory, CO).
Applicants for the PhD
program must hold an MS degree in geology, earth sciences or environmental engineering,
with strong oral and written communication skills. Experience or interest in
quantitative data analysis and field sensor networks is preferred. The graduate students will
be fully funded by research and teaching assistantships. For more info:
