  Investigating the impact of climate change on riverine flooding (Advert Reference: SF18/MCE/MOTTA)
  Dr D Motta
Applications accepted all year round
Riverine flooding evaluation typically includes a hydrologic analysis to estimate the flood peak discharge or hydrograph for a reference return period, and a hydraulic model to compute the corresponding water surface elevations and flooded areas.
  Atmospheric Drivers of UK flood events: Current State and Future Changes
  Dr J Catto
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership (GW4+ DTP).
  Comprehensive investigation of the chemical flooding EOR in natural rocks
  Dr J Vinogradov, Dr L Akanji
Applications accepted all year round
Chemical flooding is a promising method of EOR in both carbonate and sandstone reservoirs. It is widely accepted that presence of chemicals in rock pore space results in alteration of interfacial tension between brine and hydrocarbons and rock wettability alteration.
  Perceptions of floods and flood risk in Hull past/present/future
  Dr B McDonagh
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Living with Water. Perceptions, Processes, Responses and Mitigation of Flooding. To celebrate the University's research successes, the University of Hull is offering a full-time UK/EU/International PhD Scholarship for candidates applying for each of the following projects as part of a new research cluster.
  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 can Knowledge of Hillslope Soils Help to Prevent Flooding Through Changes in Land Management?
  Dr B McKenzie, Dr Z Gagkas, Dr A Black
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Background. The impact of climate change across Scotland is indisputable. SEPA (2006) state that current predictions indicate higher river flows nationwide in the future will likely lead to increased flood risk.
  Climate change effects on coastal flooding: are models fit-for-purpose and how do we mitigate the risk?
  Dr P Robins
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
Coastal flooding has been ranked the second highest risk for civil emergency in the UK, costing £0.25bn annually in economic loss.
  Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) from depleted Sandstone and Carbonate/chalk reservoirs
  Dr P Jadhawar, Dr H Hamidi, Dr Y Zhou
Applications accepted all year round
Nearly one third of the oil is left behind in the reservoir after the primary and secondary recovery methods of oil recovery.
  Flood mitigation schemes in rural communities in the south west of England
  Dr K Clarke, Dr A P Dykes, Dr M Ibsen
Applications accepted all year round
There have been several severe flood events in southwest England in recent years, including Boscastle in 2004, Dawlish in 2014 and Coverack in 2014 and July 2017.
  Channel-floodplain interactions during flood events: energy and momentum exchange
  Dr S J Mclelland
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Living with Water. Perceptions, Processes, Responses and Mitigation of Flooding. To celebrate the University's research successes, the University of Hull is offering a full-time UK/EU/International PhD Scholarship for candidates applying for each of the following projects as part of a new research cluster.
