NERC GW4+ DTP studentship - Sea sparkle: identifying and predicting bioluminescent blooms

Noctiluca scintillans1 (known as “sea sparkle”) is a bioluminescent dionoflagellate, found commonly in UK coastal waters. It is sometimes associated with harmful red tides, which threaten local ecosystems and fisheries through eutrophication2. Read more

Effects of vegetation on wave hydrodynamics and sediment dynamics

Because vegetation attenuates wave energy and traps sediments, and is naturally adaptive to climate change, there is increasing interest in its possible use for coastal protection purposes. Read more

Moving stories: narrating change along the shorelines of Spurn

About this project. . Applications are invited for a fully funded interdisciplinary PhD scholarship drawing upon the research methodologies of Literature and Marine Science to investigate the narratives of Spurn, and understand the interrelation of coastal ecology, communities and cultures.

Characterising the efficiency of Enhanced Weathering as an atmospheric CO2 removal strategy using isotopic tracers

Project Rationale. The implementation of new approaches for reducing atmospheric CO. 2. levels is urgently required if we are to achieve the Paris Agreement target of limiting the post-industrialization increase in global temperature to 1.5°C. Read more

The transport of plastics and alien particles under waves

While substantial fundamental research has been conducted in recent decades on sediment transport under waves,, little is known about the behaviour of alien particles dispersed within a sand bed mobilised by waves. Read more

Developing resilient hospitals through agent-based modelling

Approximate one-fifth of UK confirmed COVID-19 cases and the majority of the infected frontline healthcare workers are associated with healthcare-acquired infections due to contaminated built environments. Read more

The Release and Fate of Organofluoro ‘Forever’ Chemicals from Wastewater Treatment Works

Project Outline. This studentship will investigate the role of wastewater treatment works (WWTWs) as potential major sources of per/polyfluoroalkylated substances (PFAS) to rivers and coastal waters. Read more

Efficacy of Greenhouse Gas Removal via Enhanced Rock Weathering: impact of groundwater chemistry and flow

Enhanced rock weathering (ERW) is a prime Greenhouse Gas Reduction (GGR) technology based on amending soils with crushed calcium- and magnesium-rich silicate rocks that accelerates natural carbon dioxide sequestration processes with important co-benefits for crop production and restoration of soil health.
