  Can periodic sediment input signals make it through to the sedimentary archive?
  Dr R Duller, Prof P Burgess, Dr R Jerrett, Dr K Straub
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Introduction. “How can we accurately decode a sedimentary succession for periodic input sediment supply signals if we have gaps in the succession and signals are shredded?” A common assumption in stratigraphic analysis is the stratigraphic record presents us with an unbiased record of past landscapes & climate.
  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.
  Downstream dispersal and transfer of macroplastics in river systems: a travel distance approach
  Dr M Powell, Prof S E Gabbott
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Environmental pollution by synthetic polymers (plastics) is a global problem that severely impacts ecosystem form and function, human health, natural resource management and environmental aesthetics.
  Pushing back the frontiers of luminescence dating – IAPETUS DTP PhD Studentship (Durham University and Glasgow University)
  Prof I Bailiff
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
University of Durham and the University of Glasgow. Luminescence - especially optically stimulated luminescence - dating is an established and important tool for dating events during the Late Pleistocene and latter part of the Middle Pleistocene.
  Modelling microplastic dispersal, settling and distribution in estuarine environments
  Dr R Dorrell, Dr C Hackney, Prof D Parsons
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).
  Landscape evolution modelling for enhanced geohazard risk management along the Bailong River Corridor, Gansu, China
  Dr T Dijkstra, Prof Q Liang
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Reference number. CENTA18-LU11. Start date. October 1st 2019. Closing date. January 21st 2019. Interview date. Week beginning February 11th 2019.
  Climate change in the Peruvian Amazon: assessing and modelling the role of invertebrates in wood decay and carbon cycling under changing flood dynamics
  Dr K Barrett, Dr M Burns
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Accurately measuring carbon fluxes in tropical forests is important due to their role in understanding and mitigating climate change.
  Dinoflagellate cysts and palaeoenvironmental change during Cretaceous oceanic anoxic events: a study of OAE1a
  Prof I Jarvis, Prof G Gillmore
Applications accepted all year round
This project will study Cretaceous dinoflagellate cysts. It seeks to understand relationships between dinocysts, a proxy for marine nutrient availability and organic zooplankton fertility, and episodes of black shale (petroleum source rock) deposition during Oceanic Anoxic Events (OAEs) in the mid-Cretaceous.
  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.
  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).
