  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.
  The rocky road to recovery – The role of microbialites in coral reef recovery after abrupt environmental change
  Dr C van der Land
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This project is part of the ONE Planet DTP. Find out more here. https://research.ncl.ac.uk/one-planet/. Microbialites are excellent recorders of past sea-level and water chemistry, especially during times of environmental stress when skeletal corals (normal reef builders) are less likely to survive.
  The role of microorganisms in the cycling of climate active gases (Ref: OP19_16)
  Prof D Pearce
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Microorganisms are likely to play an increasingly important role in the Earth’s climate system (Falkowski et al., 2008 Science 320.
  From Greenhouse to Icehouse: Past changes in southern hemisphere vegetation and the evolution of the Antarctic ice sheet (Ref: OP19_24)
  Prof U Salzmann
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The polar regions play a key role in our understanding of environmental change in a future warmer-than-present world. The past vegetation and climate of Antarctica and the evolution of its highly sensitive and dynamic ice sheet are poorly constrained by geological data.
  From Greenhouse to Icehouse: Past changes in southern hemisphere vegetation and the evolution of the Antarctic ice sheet (Advert Reference: RDF19/EE/GES/SALZMANN)
  Prof 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.
  Plastic invasion of remote foodwebs
  Dr C Waller, Dr M Johnson
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Since the onset of mass production of plastics in the 1950’s the flux of plastics to the marine environment has been a growing problem (Cole at al., 2011), such that microplastic contamination of the oceans is now one of the world’s most pressing environmental concerns (Hurley et al., 2018).
  Microbial communities cycling organic sulfur compounds in Arctic sea ice
  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
  Dr H Schaefer, Dr Y Chen
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Overview. The Arctic is undergoing significant changes due to climate warming. Arctic ice cover has significant feedbacks and regulatory function for regional and global climate, but recently the extent of ice cover in the Arctic Ocean has fallen to record low levels.
