  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.
  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.
  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.
  Improved driving-scenario-based inventories for real world tailpipe emissions from contemporary vehicles
  Dr J Vande Hey, Dr A Spencer
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Air pollution is a major problem globally, with ambient (outdoor) air pollution estimated by the World Health Organisation to cause 4.2 million premature deaths per year.
  Advancing the modelling of air pollution removal by vegetation at the local scale
  Prof M Heal
Application Deadline: 10 January 2019
Applications are invited for this 3.5 year fully-funded E4 DTP studentship with PhD registration through the School of Chemistry, University of Edinburgh.
  The impact of high resolution spatiotemporal environmental data on healthcare decision making at the hospital trust scale
  Dr J Vande Hey, Prof K Abrams
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
There is considerable evidence of the long term health impacts of sustained environmental exposures such as air pollution [1], and of short term health impacts of exposures such as extreme air pollution events [2] or temperatures [3].
  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 will air pollution and climate change combine to affect future food supply?
  Dr L Emberson
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
The record high temperatures and extended droughts experienced across much of the northern hemisphere during the summer of 2018 serve as a stark reminder of the severe impacts climate change will cause arable agriculture.
  Multivariate Peaks-Over-Threshold (POT) Modelling of Non-stationary Air Pollution Concentration Data
  Dr L V Bogachev
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Peaks-over-threshold (POT) method is the preferred modern approach to analyse extreme values in a time series. This is due to a better usage of information as compared to the classic block-maxima method (which utilises only one maximum value in each block, e.g.
