The multiple drivers of environmental change, such as climate change and pollution, have led to widespread negative impacts on ecosystem functioning and services that are critical for human well-being.
  Constraining CO2 emission of cities with sensor networks
  Prof H Boesch, Dr J Vande Hey
Application Deadline: 21 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project reference. CSE Physics Boesch 2020. Reducing carbon emissions to prevent damaging climate change is one of the grand challenges of our time.
  Joint PhD with University of Hamburg: Examining beyond-2100 Earth System feedbacks across the model hierarchy
  Assoc Prof M Meinshausen, Dr V Brovkin
Application Deadline: 21 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Understanding and quantifying centennial-scale Earth System feedbacks for a wide range of scenarios is key to provide updated information on remaining carbon budgets for policy makers and society alike.
  CO2 Uptake by the Southern Ocean: Using atmospheric measurements to understand the key processes (SUNTHARALINGAMUENV20ARIES)
  Dr P Suntharalingam, Dr A Jones, Dr A Manning, Prof C Le Quere
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

BACKGROUND AND APPROACH. The Southern Ocean plays a fundamental role in regulating global climate through uptake of heat and atmospheric carbon-dioxide (CO2), and removes ~40% of atmospheric CO2 derived from human activity.
  Quantifying the role of natural and anthropogenically driven geomorphic disturbances in forest landscapes on global carbon emissions
  Prof SE Darby, Dr GJ Roberts, Prof J Dash
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. This project aims to quantify (1985-2020) the extent to which the world’s forests have been fragmented by geomorphic disturbances (landsliding and river channel migration) and explore the implications with respect to determining the impacts of this fragmentation and loss on the global carbon cycle.
