OFFER DESCRIPTION

In the context of the ERC Project THUNDERR (www.thunderr.eu), the PhD candidate will be asked to make a windstorm-related damage survey in the coastal area of the Ligurian and the Tyrrhenian Sea. The focus will be paid, in particular, on commercial seaports (Genova, Savona-Vado, Livorno), which are considered by EU strategic infrastructural gateways to the trans-European transport network (TEN-T). Port work is an occupation with a high risk of accidents and health implications for workers, and the wind is considered the most dangerous cause of disasters and malfunctions in port areas, directly affecting operation and safety. The research activity will consist of windstorm classification between mesoscale phenomena and local thunderstorms, analysis of the weather scenarios in which the most striking events occur, and development of a procedure to nowcast/forecast the most dangerous weather conditions.
