Lithosphere dynamics in the North Atlantic region constrained by satellite gravity gradient data

The master student will work with recently acquired GOCE satellite gravity gradient data and GRACE gravity data. The project will include processing, modelling, and data interpretation.

The interpretation will help better understand present-day mantle dynamics in the North Atlantic region and processes related to glacial isostatic adjustment following the last glaciation.

The student will work on implementation of forward and inverse modeling of gravity and gravity gradient data in spherical coordinates.
