  Erosion hazards in a changing climate: making inland communities more resilient
  Dr J Cooper, Prof A Plater, Prof J Hooke, Mr D Viner
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
This modelling project aims to quantify how future climate scenarios will affect the frequency and severity of erosion hazards in catchments, the vulnerability of key rural infrastructure and how we might best mitigate their impact.
  How are our peatlands eroding? Using fine scale ‘roughness signatures’ to quantify soil and carbon losses via different erosion mechanisms
  Dr M Smith, Prof A Baird, Prof J Warburton
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
"Peatlands form an important terrestrial carbon store, comprising 30-50% of all carbon stored in soils worldwide (Gorham, 1991) much of which is at risk of degradation through climate change (Gallego-Sala and Prentice, 2013), increasing its susceptibility to erosion.
  Modelling soil erosion and soil carbon dynamics in agricultural systems
  Dr M Galdos, Prof P Chapman
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Besides supporting food, feed, fuel and fibre production, soils provide ecosystems services such as storing carbon, filtering water and maintaining biodiversity.
  RISK CDT - Vulnerability of coastal infrastructures under climate change
  Dr E Patelli, Dr N Leonardi
Applications accepted all year round
Applications will close as soon as a suitable candidate has been found. The successful candidate is expected to start by February 2019.
  Performance Evaluation and Failure Analysis of Preventive Corrosion/Erosion Coatings Used in Power Plant and Refinery
  Dr D Daniel
Applications accepted all year round
Fossil fuels are currently the major energy source with approximately 80% of total energy consumption of the world. Renewable energy including traditional biomass contributes to about 14%.
  Multifunctional coatings: Developing novel, robust and multifunctional erosion resistant coatings
  Prof K Choy
Applications accepted all year round
Novel and high performance multifunctional coatings are required to extend the operation life of critical aircraft components operating in extreme environments, enhance their performance and reduce maintenance requirements.
  Examining the erratic record of Scotland’s glacially and fluvially modified landscape
  Dr L L Kirstein, Dr R Walcott, Prof S Mudd, Dr A Hein
Application Deadline: 10 January 2019
Project summary. Scotland’s land surface is the product of plate tectonics modified by surface processes and extensively reconfigured by glacial erosion.
  PhD in Geographical and Earth Sciences – Decoding tectonics and climate effects in incipient mountains: the Sierra Nevada (southern Spain) case study
  Dr C Persano, Prof A Densmore, Dr D Fabel, Prof T Hoey
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
This project aims to constrain the evolving topography of mountain belts and to understand how mountains grow. Constraining how topography of mountains change with time, therefore, is crucial for understanding sediment delivery to the basins and changes in atmospheric circulation.
  Micronutrient and pollution transfer in East African lake catchments: impacts on the food-water-energy security nexus
  Dr M Watts
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
Background. Subsistence farmers in Africa are often dependent on food grown within a limited area. Therefore, their health is often associated with geochemical factors that influence the soil-to-crop transfer of essential micronutrients (MN) for health (e.g.
  Land surface dynamics of global dust emission schemes to improve climate change projections
  Dr A Chappell
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Project Background. Terrestrial mineral dust emission has a profound and pervasive impact on Earth’s systems and future climate projections.
