  Space-based solutions to air pollution in the UK
  Dr E Marais, Prof P Monks
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Air pollution is the largest global threat to health (Lancet, 2017). In the UK, about 40,000 people die prematurely each year due to exposure to air pollution (RCP, 2016) and UK health care costs due to air pollution may be as high as £160 million per year (PHE, 2018).
  Street-scale modelling of air quality in Beijing: Explaining spatial variability and assessing human exposure
  Dr O Wild
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
Air pollution is a major problem in many parts of the world, and is particularly acute in countries with rapidly developing economies such as China.
  Severe air pollution in South Africa: A view from space
  Dr E Marais, Dr M Barkley
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Exposure to air pollution affects us at all stages of development. South Africa is one of the global hotspots of air pollution due to proliferation of coal-fired power plants, energy-intensive industries, traffic congestion, and domestic burning of fuelwood and trash.
  Wood burning in the West Midlands: impact on air quality and health
  Dr Z Shi, Prof R Harrison, Dr X Cai
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
World Health Organization (WHO) estimated that air pollution is associated with 7 million premature deaths per year globally. In the UK, air pollution causes 40,000 premature deaths (Royal College of Physicians, 2016) and costs the economy £20 bn per year.
  How can we reduce the numbers of people exposed to particulate matter in the UK?
  Prof M Evans, Prof A C Lewis
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Air quality in the UK has received increasing attention over the last decade. The government is drafting a new air quality strategy (https://goo.gl/rfSqGc).
  Development of new nano-absorptive materials for air filtration and self-cleaning coatings in closed environment (Advert Reference: RDF19/EE/MCE/QIAN)
  Dr Zi Qian
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
The number of metro commuters has continuously increased over recent years in metropolitan cities such as London. The air quality and thermal comfort in the subway indoor environment is of particular public concern.
  Do green solvents mean cleaner air?
  Dr T J Dillon, Dr R McElroy
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
Environmental sustainability is an issue at the forefront of modern research efforts. Recent estimates suggest solvents account for the majority of waste produced by the chemical industry.
  Does nighttime chemistry of isoprene impact air quality in polluted environments?
  Dr J F Hamilton, Dr P Edwards
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Exposure to poor air quality is the top environmental risk factor of premature mortality globally. It is estimated that 91 % of the world’s population lives in places where air quality exceeds World Health Organisation guideline limits and that 1 in 9 deaths globally are a result of exposure to air pollution.
  Investigating local and regional air pollution from shipping
  Dr J D Lee, Dr S Moller, Dr J Hopkins
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Shipping is a growing sector but one of the least regulated sources of emissions of atmospheric pollutants. It is also an important source of gaseous and particulate air pollution in coastal regions, causing up to 400,000 premature deaths per year globally.
  NERC Panorama Doctoral Training Partnership - Long-term measurements of OH reactivity: A new metric for air quality
  Dr D Stone
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Poor air quality has been reported as the greatest environmental risk to public health in the UK (DEFRA, 2017), has recently been linked to dementia (Carey et al., 2018), and is estimated to cause over 40,000 premature deaths in the UK each year (Royal College of Physicians, 2016).
