  Nitrogen cycling and benthic-pelagic coupling in the changing Arctic Ocean
  Dr S Henley, Dr F Cottier
Application Deadline: 10 January 2019
Project summary. Nitrogen cycling in the Arctic Ocean shelf seas, where dramatic sea ice changes are underway, will be examined using nitrate isotopes in seawater and sediment porewaters.
  Predicting risk and planning mitigation against regional impact from climate change on populations of Arctic char (Salvelinus alpines)
  Prof AR Hoelzel, Dr E McClymont
Application Deadline: 12 January 2019
Arctic char have a circumpolar distribution in high boreal, alpine and arctic habitats in the Northern Hemisphere. Many southern populations are stationary in freshwater habitats, but some especially in the north are anadromous (moving between marine and freshwater habitats).
  Response of ringed seal populations to environmental change in the Canadian Arctic
  Dr R Jeffreys, Dr C Mahaffey, Dr SC Smout, Dr S Ferguson
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Introduction. The Arctic Ocean is undergoing unprecedented rates of environmental change, warming twice as fast as the global average (Hoegh-Guldberg and Bruno, 2010).
  Climate change and Arctic wildlife: consequences for human-wildlife interactions & ecosystem services
  Dr S G Willis, Dr S Street, Dr A Lehikoinen
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Background. The Arctic environment is rapidly changing, with impacts on Arctic livelihoods associated with the natural world being poorly understood.
  Impact of recent climate change on phytoplankton composition in the Arctic Ocean
  Dr F Marret-Davies, Dr C Mahaffey
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
The Arctic Ocean is undergoing rapid environmental change. The Arctic is warming twice as fast as the global average. The areal extent of sea ice has declined by 9% per decade since 1978 (Comiso 2012).
  Siberian summers: detecting the leakage of old carbon from permafrost catchments
  Dr J Dean, Prof R Chiverell
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Arctic permafrost soils are large carbon stores capable of driving a positive climate feedback loop as global temperatures rise (Dean et al., 2018a).
  Connections between tropical and polar climate change
  Dr J Screen
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Main Information. This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership (GW4+ DTP).
  Wavy Jets and Arctic Climate Change - Examining the nature of the Arctic and its relationship to the jet stream and European weather/climate in the past
  Prof A Haywood, Dr D Hill
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Rising temperatures due to the emission of greenhouse gases may be changing atmospheric circulation. This is expressed most clearly by changes in regional weather patterns, and in the frequency and intensity of extreme weather events.
  Investigation into the importance of aerosols from blowing snow for accurate predictions of Arctic climate change
  Dr D Partridge, Dr A Sellar
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Location. University of Exeter, Streatham Campus, Exeter EX4 4QJ. This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership (GW4+ DTP).
  Sources, transfer and fate of microplastics in the Arctic marine environment
  Dr C Halsall
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
Contamination of the world’s oceans by plastic waste is of growing international concern. The presence of persistent microplastic particles in very remote environments like the Arctic demonstrates the far-reaching effects of pollution arising in temperate regions.
