  Anatomy of subduction megathrust: a unique view from deep drilling into the Nankai Trough, Japan
  Prof D Faulkner, Dr J Bedford, Dr E Mariani
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Subduction zone megathrust earthquakes are the largest and most destructive on earth, with many rupturing the seafloor and generating devastating tsunamis such as that produced after the M9.0 Tohoku-Oki earthquake in 2011.
  Late Pleistocene Geomagnetic and Environmental Change in East Asia
  Dr C Xuan, Prof A Kemp
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Project Rationale. Earth’s magnetic field is essential to life on our planet because of the protection it provides from solar wind and cosmic rays.
  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.
  Provenance of Southern Cape Rivers: Links to Hydroclimate and Early Humans
  Prof I Hall, Dr M Andersen
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Project Background. The pattern and causes of late Pleistocene climate variability in the subtropics of south-eastern Africa is intensively debated.
  Climate impacts on terrestrial nomadic birds of the Australian interior
  Dr S G Willis, Dr R Fuller
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Background. Australia experienced during 2010-11 rainfall of a scale and intensity that was unprecedented in recorded history, driven by the strongest La Niňa weather pattern since 1917.
  From Greenhouse to Icehouse: Past changes in southern hemisphere vegetation and the evolution of the Antarctic ice sheet (Advert Reference: RDF19/EE/GES/SALZMANN)
  Dr U Salzmann
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
How stable were Antarctic Ice Sheets during warm climate intervals in the past? What are the main events and processes controlling Antarctic climate and how are they related to global environmental change? The polar regions play a key role in our understanding of environmental change in a future warmer-than-present world.
  The evolution of volcanism following sector collapse
  Dr S Watt, Prof T J Reston
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Sector collapses are among the largest volume events to affect volcanic systems, potentially involving the rapid displacement of tens of cubic kilometres of rock.
  Validating Cenozoic records of deep-sea ostracod diversity
  Dr I Boomer
Applications accepted all year round
Ostracods are microscopic, bivalved crustaceans that have a long fossil record in marine and non-marine habitats. The existence of deep-sea ostracod assemblages in today’s oceans have been known since the 19th century Challenger expedition.
  Is the ocean short of breath due to global warming?(DALL’OMIOUPML19ARIES)
  Dr G Dall'Olmo, Dr C Robinson, Dr L Polimene, Dr B Queste
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
The problem. The ocean is running out of oxygen. This de-oxygenation is reducing the habitats available for fish and other marine organisms and can alter global biogeochemical cycles.
  Improving Agroforestry in Latin America with the Versatile Tree Genus Inga
  Dr K Dexter
Application Deadline: 10 January 2019
See. https://www.geos.ed.ac.uk/e4-dtp/project/pdf/98. Summary. The student will contribute to a funded project using experimental and observational approaches to determine the best Inga species for agroforestry, while developing their own projects on specific species of Inga.
