  Climate change impacts on subsistence agriculture in Sub-Saharan Africa – an exploration using data assimilation with the JULES land surface model
  Dr J Kaduk, Dr D Ghent
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Climate change is expected to impact African water and food security, sustainable development and economic sustainability (ISS, 2010).
  Unexplored transitions between forest and savanna in Africa
  Dr K Dexter, Dr C Ryan
Application Deadline: 10 January 2019
See. https://www.geos.ed.ac.uk/e4-dtp/project/pdf/124. Project Background. The forests and savanna biomes of Africa are known the world over for their biodiversity and carbon storage.
  Late Quaternary palaeohydrological and palaeoecological reconstruction in southern Africa using leaf wax lipids
  Dr A Carr, Dr A Boom
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
The sub-tropics of Africa responded sensitively to Pleistocene glacial-interglacial climatic change, as evidenced by the formation of palaeo-lakes and the activity of now relict dune systems.
  Understanding how climate change affects the tropical rain belt over Africa and its variability
  Dr J Marsham, Dr D Parker
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
SUMMARY. The tropics cover 40% of Earth’s area, include 36% of its land, and are home to 40% of its people. Africa is the continent with the largest tropical land mass, and its rapidly growing population includes many of the people who are most vulnerable to climate change.
  The growth of multinational telecommunication enterprises in Africa: Institutions, markets and technological change (REF: SF18/BAM/WHALLEY2)
  Prof J Whalley, Dr R Nyuur
Applications accepted all year round
Foreign direct investment (FDI) reflects a host of interacting and dynamic factors. Multinational enterprises (MNE) are encouraged to enter a foreign market because of its size or endowment of natural resources, or efficiency reasons.
  SCENARIO: Pan-African Heatwave Health Hazard Forecasting
  Dr H Cloke, Dr C Di Napoli
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Heatwaves are a serious meteorological hazard to human health and place significant strains on infrastructure (power, water and transport), agricultural production, retail, tourism and ecosystem services.
  Drought history of Southern Africa from windblown dust in ocean sediments and links to changes in global warmth and polar ice volume
  Prof P Wilson, Dr A Crocker, Dr S Bohary
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Programme website. http://inspire-dtp.ac.uk. Project Rationale. As Earth heats up this century because of human forcing, precipitation patterns will change globally.
  Rift fault activity and interaction at high resolution using geophysical and drilling data analysis from Greece and East Africa
  Prof L McNeill, Dr D Keir
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Project Rationale. Active continental rifts and the faults that control their deformation are the source of earthquakes and create some of our most important sediment sinks.
  African carbon emissions estimation using Earth Observation (EO) data
  Dr GJ Roberts
Application Deadline: 12 January 2019
Biomass burning is an important Earth system process and a major component of land surface change. Terrestrial burning of vegetation alters surface cover and releases large quantities of aerosols and trace gases, which in turn affect the atmospheres chemical composition and the Earth’s climate.
  Organic wastes and food, energy and water provision in Sub-Saharan Africa
  Dr J Smith, Prof P Hallett
Applications accepted all year round
Globally, over 2.8 billion people still rely on unsustainable solid biomass for cooking and heating, of which ~2.2 billion (78%) live in rural areas.
