  The Carbon Cycle of and Artificial Tropical Ecosystem.
  Dr D Bebber, Dr L Rowland
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).
  OUR CHANGING OCEANS: artificial intelligence (AI) and the marine carbon cycle.
  Dr U Schuster
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Additional Supervisors. Dr Jacqueline Christmas, Department of Computer Science, College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences, University of Exeter.
  Ironing out the carbon cycle: Carbon burial associated with iron oxides in Arctic shelf sediments
  Dr C Marz, Prof C.L. Peacock
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
As marine geoscientists, we are interested in the capability of the world’s oceans to sequester atmospheric CO2 into photosynthetic algal biomass, and to ultimately lock it away in seafloor sediments when this biomass dies and sinks to the ocean depths.
  Climate change in the Peruvian Amazon: assessing and modelling the role of invertebrates in wood decay and carbon cycling under changing flood dynamics
  Dr K Barrett, Dr M Burns
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Accurately measuring carbon fluxes in tropical forests is important due to their role in understanding and mitigating climate change.
  Origin and drivers of the Global Carbon Budget imbalance (LEQUEREUENV19ARIES)
  Prof C Le Quere, Dr A Manning, Prof P Friedlingstein
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
Scientific background. Over half of the CO2 emitted to the atmosphere by human activities is absorbed by the natural carbon ’sinks’ on land and in the ocean, leaving a fraction of the emissions in the atmosphere.
  Satellite Observations of CO2 in support of the Paris Agreement for Emission Reduction
  Prof H Boesch, Dr J Vande Hey
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Mitigating or slowing down global warming is one of the primary challenges humankind faces in the 21st century. Globally we are already approaching a warming mark of 1°C and we are seeing effects, such as droughts, reduced snowpack, and increased forest fires.
  Ocean Sulfate and Earth’s Surface Evolution
  Dr R Newton, Dr B Mills, Dr T Aze, Prof L Benning
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Ocean sulfate is an underappreciated control on the evolution of Earth’s surface environment. Sulfate concentrations have changed a lot over the course of Earth’s history, but the effect on the biogeochemical cycles of other elements and the links to evolutionary events has received relatively little attention.
  The role of natural aerosol in biosphere-atmosphere interactions and feedbacks
  Dr A Rap, Dr D Spracklen
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
This project will investigate the role of natural aerosol in vegetation-climate feedbacks, using state-of-the-art models to improve our understanding of biosphere-atmosphere interactions with important implications for future climate projections.
  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).
  Pests and pollution: Mycorrhizal mediation of carbon cycling in heather moorlands
  Research Group: School of Biology
  Dr S M Sait, Dr K. Field, Prof P Chapman
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
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.
