Master thesis proposal: Bathing water quality surveillance

Every summer, there are reports that the bathing water in Helsingborg is not safe. Bacteria are discovered on the beach, but despite many attempts to understand where these bacteria come from, the source has not yet been found.

This project will challenge you to combine big data information from real time microbiology measurements with hydrodynamic information about wind, water and sediment transport. You will work in a multi-disciplinary team with microbiologists and coastal engineers at Water Resources Engineering at LTH and hydrodynamic modelers at DHI.

You are not afraid of numerical modelling, physical processes in the coastal environment, and are curious about how different types of data can be combined in meaningful ways. You have strong English communications skills, and communication in Swedish is an asset.
