Peter MetcalfePhD student, Associate Lecturer
I am applying computerised simulation and numerical techniques in order to produce a combined subsurface flow and solute transport model. This should be able to operate on a range of scales and to incorporate uncertainty.
It could, for example, be applied by the Environment Agency and other catchment stakeholders to semi-automated, batch scenario modelling for flood and pollutant mitigation.
- computerised simulation in the hydrological domain
- numerical solutions to physical fluid flow in "Big" geographical data
- novel data visualisation and analysis, particularly for spatial data
I am an avid user of the spatial features of the R language and environment http://www.r-project.org/
