This project asks whether the Earth’s hydrosphere could have come from outer space via water-rich meteorites. The focus of this work will be on analysing the abundance and hydrogen isotopic composition of water in Mighei-like (CM) carbonaceous chondrites.
Two missions are currently en route to collect samples from carbonaceous asteroids and return them to Earth. The OSIRIS-Rex mission (NASA) will sample Bennu, whereas Hayabusa2 (Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency, JAXA) will visit the asteroid Ryugu.
This collaborative PhD is based on a partnership between academics researching the geographies of (mental) health/disability and Remake Up (http://remakeup.org/), a social enterprise in Glasgow that uses profits to fund subsidised or free permanent make-up (paramedical tattooing) for those with disfigurement or critical illness experiences involving facial or other bodily change.
The composition and pollution implications of waste materials from historic paper makingThis project will investigate the composition and pollution implications of waste materials from historic paper making, using a case study site at Milngavie, Scotland.
PhD students are sought to join the multi-institution ECLIPSE Supervolcano programme hosted at the School of Geography, Environment, and Earth Sciences, Victoria University of Wellington (VUW; http://www.victoria.ac.nz/sgees).
