Ocean current velocimetry from ultra-high resolution satellite imagery

Particle image velocimetry (PIV) is a widely used technique for measuring flow velocities by tracking features in sequential images.

In this project, we will test the feasibility of using PIV to estimate ocean currents at the surface of the ocean from satellite images of sea-surface temperature. Knowledge of satellite remote sensing and ocean dynamics is not required, but strong computational ability in Matlab or Python is a must.

This project is supervised by Dr Shane Keating (UNSW Sydney). Please contact s.keating@unsw.edu.au for more information.

Submit your application by Oct 26 2018 for commencement in Term 1, 2019.
