  SEESALT: Novel ways to ’SEE’ coastal ’SALT’ marshes using low-cost drones and sensors
  Dr D Green, Dr D Mauquoy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Saltmarshes are found extensively along low wave energy coastlines resulting from fine sediment accumulation and vegetation establishment.
  CollaPsE: a Collaborative science-art Project on coastal cliff Erosion. PhD in Geography (NERC GW4+ DTP)
  Dr G Bennett
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Dr Georgina Bennett, Department of Geography, College of Life and Environmental Sciences, University of Exeter. Additional Supervisors.
  Community-based approaches for the implementation of Nature-based solutions against coastal erosion
  Dr A Ollauri, Dr K Munro, Dr S B Mickovski
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

SCEBE-19-024. Coastal erosion is a natural hazard which frequency and intensity will likely increase as a result of sea-level rise and storm surges due to climate change.
  Numerical modelling of sediment transportation and surface roughness on vegetated coastal dune systems
  Assoc Prof S Wakes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Coasts and coastal communities around the world are vulnerable to sea level increases and intensity of storm events. Vegetated sand dunes are relied upon for protection, buffering coastal communities from the sea.
  Storm clustering and its influence on coastal morphology and defence.
  Dr I Haigh, Dr D Pender, Prof R Lamb, Ms J Hornsby
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The coastal zone is widely recognised as important at national, European and global levels, but is facing increasing pressures from climate change.
  Systems off-balance? Exploring the cumulative impacts of enriched coastal waters, altered nutrient ratios and a warming climate on coastal phytoplankton communities (MALINUENV20ARIES)
  Dr G Malin, Dr N Greenwood, Dr M Devlin
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

SCIENTIFIC BACKGROUND. Coastal eutrophication is a worldwide issue with negative cultural and environmental impacts and its assessment is a formal requirement of several European Directives.
  An interdisciplinary assessment of innovative coastal management: the Bacton-Walcott Sandscaping Scheme (TOLHURSTUENV20ARIES)
  Dr T Tolhurst, Dr I Lorenzoni, Mr R Goodliffe
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

SCIENTIFIC BACKGROUND. Rising sea levels and other effects of climate change are exacerbating coastal change internationally. Recognition of the benefits of coastal defences that work with natural processes has resulted in a shift towards ‘soft’ coastal protection.
  A new monitoring tool for Coastal Landslide Observatories (JOHNSONUENV20ARIES)
  Dr J Johnson, Prof R. Nicholls
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In the face of climate change, our coasts are becoming increasingly vulnerable due to more extreme weather events as well as sea-level rise.
  Keeping above the waves? The response of coastal freshwater peatlands to sea-level rise. PhD in Geography (NERC GW4+ DTP)
  Dr T Roland
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Dr Tom Roland, Department of Geography, University of Exeter. Additional Supervisor. Dr Matt Palmer, Met Office Hadley Centre.
  Transport of radioactive waste along the Sellafield shoreline: climate change impact and mitigation strategies through nature based solutions
  Dr N Leonardi, Prof A Plater
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This proposal aims to build on previous collaboration across the Department of Geography and Planning and NNL on the ARCoES project.
