  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.
  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.
  (MERI) Air quality: New tools for investigating pollution
  Research Group: Atmospheric Science
  Dr J Allan, Prof H Coe, Prof G McFiggans, Dr D Topping
Application Deadline: 6 February 2019
Air quality continues to be a major issue facing both developed and developing countries, with outdoor pollution estimated to annually cause around 3 million premature deaths worldwide.
  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.
  Designing Electric vehicle Commuter travel ENvironments for fuTure LifestYles (DECENTLY)
  Dr D Dissanayake
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This project is part of the ONE Planet DTP. Find out more here. https://research.ncl.ac.uk/one-planet/. As a means to mitigate impending climate change and air quality issues associated to transportation emissions, the UK is set a target for 60% of new cars to be electric vehicles (EVs) by 2030.
  Understanding the loss of atmospheric chlorine atoms
  Dr P Edwards
Applications accepted all year round
Tropospheric oxidants are responsible for the degradation of trace gases emitted into the atmosphere, and thus determine fundamental Earth system processes including.
  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.
  SCENARIO: Climate Response to Short-lived Pollutants (CReSP)
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Prof W Collins, Prof K Shine, Dr N Bellouin
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
This project is to investigate the impacts of air pollutants on climate. As well as causing health problems, air pollutants such as ozone, soot and sulphuric acid also affect climate by changing the Earth’s radiation balance.
  (MERI) Assessment of fugitive methane gas emissions from UK fracking operations using unmanned aerial vehicle surveys and fixed-site monitoring (CASE studentship)
  Research Group: Atmospheric Science
  Dr G Allen, Dr P Williams, Dr H Ricketts
Application Deadline: 6 February 2019
CASE STUDENTSHIP WITH ENVIROTECH LIMITED. Measuring and monitoring greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from industry informs many environmental process studies, ranging from shorter-term assessments of air quality and its impacts on human health, to longer term understanding of climate change.
