We are recruiting 1 MSc student in Statistics at Dalhousie University to start January 1, 2024, or May 1, 2024. The studentship is full-time, based on campus at Dalhousie University. Many regions in Nova Scotia suffer from coastal flooding, a scenario predicted to occur more frequently by recent climate change projections. These extreme events are difficult to model as they are infrequent but have far-reaching and severe societal and economic consequences. It is therefore essential to model these events to gain a better understanding of their occurrence, potential magnitude, and societal impact. In this work, a spatial model will be developed for water levels around the coast of Nova Scotia. The results of this work will be used by the other members of the collaborative team and our municipal partner.
