  Is Arctic sea ice getting smoother and does it matter? - MScR in Global Environmental Challenges
  Dr J Landy
Application Deadline: 1 August 2019
About The Project. We have observed unprecedented changes in the Arctic’s sea ice cover over recent decades. The area covered by sea ice at the end of summer has declined by over 13% per decade and the amount of thick, old ice in the Arctic has almost halved.
  Impact of Arctic snow on soil and sea ice (Advert Reference: RDFC17-R/GES/RUTTER)
  Dr N Rutter
Application Deadline: 30 April 2019
The thermal properties of Arctic snow play a vital role in mediating energy exchanges between the atmosphere and tundra soils or sea ice.
  New geophysical parameters of melting Arctic sea ice from airborne LiDAR data - MScR in Global Environmental Challenges
  Dr J Landy
Application Deadline: 1 August 2019
About The Project. A key feature regulating the melt rate of Arctic sea ice during summer is the fractional coverage of meltwater ponds at the ice surface.
  Understanding Life in the Freezer: locomotor performance as the key to understanding the possible influences of climate change in high Arctic species
  Dr J Codd, Dr R Nudds
Applications accepted all year round
Scientific research has focused on the Arctic recently as this region is at high risk from the effects of climate change. Animal energy budgets are linked to species survival and are composed of various factors including the cost of locomotion.
  DTC GEO 6 - Geophysical field exploration of firn aquifers on ice caps in Svalbard, High Arctic
  Prof B Kulessa
Applications accepted all year round
In the last few years the major discovery of firn aquifers on Polar ice sheets and glaciers has led to the appreciation that hundreds of gigatonnes of water may be stored within them for years to decades, thus causing major delays in the ice masses’ contributions to sea level rise.
  Establishing influence of light fields and photophysiology parameterization on the performance of coupled physical ecosystem models of quantity and timing of primary production in the Barents Sea
  Dr D McKee
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
Arctic seas are warming faster than any other part of the global ocean with rapid changes in ice cover fundamentally altering coupling between physical, chemical and biological processes.
  Mitochondrial toxicity in Drosophila models of neurodegenerative diseases
  Dr L Miguel Martins
Application Deadline: 30 April 2019
The MRC Toxicology Unit is a leading international research institute within the School of Biological Sciences in the University of Cambridge.
  Low-Carbon Energy Recovery from Methane Hydrate Reservoirs
  Dr P Jadhawar, Dr W Afzal
Applications accepted all year round
Naturally occurring gas (mostly methane) hydrates along the continental margins (coastal offshore) and permafrost sediments are the clean source of energy outnumbering the rest forms of conventional energy sources.
  Planetary protection and the search for life in the outer solar system (ref: SF18/APP/Pearce)
  Prof D Pearce
Applications accepted all year round
The search for life in the outer solar system is centred on the search for water and the conditions which are known to support the ‘envelope of life’ on Earth.
