  CDT-SIS-527: Geo-chemical and geo-mechanical seabed characterisation using autonomous underwater vehicles
  Research Group: Sustainable Infrastructure Systems (SIS)
  Dr B Thornton
Application Deadline: 31 December 2018
This industry funded Ph.D. will investigate methods to perform geo-chemical and geo-mechanical seabed observations for mineral prospecting and infrastructure planning using Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs) with landing capabilities.
  Multi-scale modelling of flow through heterogeneous geo-materials
  Dr K van der Zee, Dr D Brown, Dr A Dawson
Applications accepted all year round
Do you have a passion for sustainability?. Would you like to apply mathematical research to help improve resource security?.
  DTC GEO 1 - Assessing the impact of volcanism on past climate.
  Prof S Davies
Applications accepted all year round
Volcanism is a major forcing of natural climate variability, yet the climate sensitivity to individual events and the extent to which past eruptions exerted change over a range of timescales remains poorly understood, due to the limitations of deriving a full record of volcanic events.
  DTC GEO 10 - Amended biochars to remediate heavy polluted mine waters
  Dr I Robertson
Applications accepted all year round
The aim of the propossed PhD is to investigate the use of amended biochars to remediate heavy polluted mine waters and to determine the feasibility of metal recovery from the biochars.
  DTC GEO 2 - Wildfires – carbon source or sink? Quantifying the degradation resistance of charcoal produced in different types of vegetation fires
  Dr S Doerr
Applications accepted all year round
Wildfires emit the equivalent of 30% of the global carbon (C) emissions from fossil fuel combustion, but are widely considered C neutral as the emitted C is normally taken up again as vegetation regrows.
  DTC GEO 3 - Dwelling through Rural Second Homes
  Dr K Halfacree
Applications accepted all year round
Not least at a time of perceived housing shortages, rural second homes represent controversial expressions of consumption, symbolising class inequality, urban appropriation, lack of affordable housing and the demise of ‘traditional’ rural communities.
  DTC GEO 4 - Satellite monitoring of global desertification.
  Dr R Hernández Clemente
Applications accepted all year round
Desertification is a major global environmental problem worldwide. This project is focused on detecting, monitoring and modelling the early onset of desertification processes before they are irreversible using satellite data from Sentinel-2 and Landsat products.
  DTC GEO 6 - Geophysical field exploration of firn aquifers on ice caps in Svalbard, High Arctic
  Prof B Kulessa
Applications accepted all year round
In the last few years the major discovery of firn aquifers on Polar ice sheets and glaciers has led to the appreciation that hundreds of gigatonnes of water may be stored within them for years to decades, thus causing major delays in the ice masses’ contributions to sea level rise.
  DTC GEO 8 - Seasonality in Himalayan glacier dynamics
  Dr A Luckman
Applications accepted all year round
Glaciers in the Himalayas are gradually wasting away, and often present risks to local communities in the form of outburst floods.
  DTC GEO 9 - Platforming Knowledge Production with focus on the "digital turn" in human geography and proximate disciplines
  Dr C Muellerleile, Mr LE EVANS
Applications accepted all year round
Digital platforms now play a role in most economic sectors, and knowledge production and consumption in higher education are no exception.
