  Eavesdropping on bacterial conversations: are bacterial signal molecules a universal cue for the recruitment of benthic organisms in the sea? (TAITPPML19ARIES)
  Dr K Tait
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
Scientific background. Currently, many anti-foulants are toxic chemicals which have wider implications for the health of marine communities.
  Functional response of Antarctic benthic fauna to climate change
  Prof M Solan, Dr J Godbold
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Project Rationale. This project will involve the incubation of Antarctic benthic species typical of the Antarctic Peninsula and with circum-Antarctic distributions.
  The application of artificial intelligence to benthic species identification (HowellP19ARIES)
  Dr K Howell
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
Background. Marine benthic ecosystems are chronically under-sampled particularly in environments >50m. Yet a rising level of anthropogenic threats makes data collection ever more urgent.
  NERC Panorama Doctoral Training Partnership - The ecological functioning of the Antarctic benthos: vulnerability to climate change
  Dr C Waller
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Climate models show that the effects of climate change, e.g. sea surface temperature increase and ocean acidification, will be most intense at the poles.
  Nitrogen cycling and benthic-pelagic coupling in the changing Arctic Ocean
  Dr S Henley, Prof 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.
  Autonomous chemical pore water sensors for measuring benthic fluxes
  Dr A Lichtschlag, Dr C Balan, Dr S Loucaides, Prof R James
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Programme website. Project Rationale. Quantifying the fluxes of chemical species from marine sediments into the oceans is critical for global biogeochemical cycles of many elements that are essential for life, and also for environmental monitoring of anthropogenically influenced ecosystems.
  Consequences of the response of Arctic biodiversity to climate change for benthic ecosystem functioning
  Prof M Solan, Dr J Godbold
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Programme website. Project Rationale. Rates of warming in the high northern latitudes are amongst the highest globally and are exerting multiple effects on Arctic coastal and shelf ecosystems, including unprecedented changes in the composition and diversity of seafloor communities.
  DTC BIO 16 - Understanding the effect of benthic bioturbation on chemical dynamics in lakes using an integrated biology, physics and modelling approach
  Prof K W Tang
Applications accepted all year round
Successful invasion by Chaoborus larvae (phantom midge) represents an ecological tipping point in eutrophic lakes where bioturbation of Chaoborus sustains internal nutrient loading, water deoxygenation and release of sediment methane.
  Revealing a cryptic organosulfur cycle in benthic marine environments using microbiology and metagenomics
  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
  Dr H Schaefer, Dr Y Chen
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Project Highlights. Microbiology of cycling of climatically active aerosol precursors and trace gases. Apply metagenomics approaches to organosulfur cycling.
  Mass and energy flow in seafloor ecosystems, testing and tuning deep-sea models with biochemical observations
  Dr R Jeffreys, Prof A Hirst, Dr B Bett
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Introduction. Deep-sea habitats at water depths over 2000 m cover ~60% of the Earth’s surface and are the largest and least explored environment on the planet (Smith et al.
