  Understanding and optimizing open loop geothermal systems with artificial intelligence and geophysics
  Prof G Fabien-Ouellet, Prof P Pasquier
Application Deadline: 20 December 2018
Open loop geothermal systems have the potential to significantly reduce heating and air-conditioning costs. Geothermal systems use the ground, and more precisely the aquifer, as a heat reservoir.
  A combined framework of machine learning and full waveform inversion for electromagnetic sensing of infrastructure (Advert Reference: SF18/MCE/WARREN)
  Dr C Warren
Applications accepted all year round
Electromagnetic sensing systems, such as Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR), are critical tools to allow us to evaluate the condition of surface and sub-surface infrastructure.
  Geodetic evidence for lateral magmatic connections at Chilean volcanoes
  Dr S Ebmeier, Dr D Ferguson, Prof A Hooper
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Knowing the location, volume and mobility of eruptible magma stored in the crust is critical for forecasting volcanic eruptions. Volcanic hazards threaten human life, health and livelihoods, so improvements to the way we interpret monitoring datasets, including deformation, have potential for real world impacts.
  Machine learning to detect earthquakes in energy extraction
  Dr A Nowacki, Prof D Hogg
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Our society depends on the safe extraction of energy from a mixture of natural resources, including heat from the ground in geothermal power production, and the exploitation of hydrocarbons.

  Seismicity and Structure of Subducting Slabs
  Dr T Craig, Dr S Rost
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
This project aims to understand the distribution of seismicity associated with internal deformation in shallow subducting slabs. Subduction zones are well known to host the largest and most damaging earthquakes, but also a wide variety of smaller events.
  Stratified or not-stratified or somewhere in between: Multi-disciplinary study of partially stratified layers in Earth’s outer core
  Dr S Rost, Dr J Mound, Dr A Nowacki
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
The Earth’s outer core, the source of Earth’s magnetic field, is considered to be well mixed due to the fast convection (with velocities on the order of 10s km/yr) and the low viscosity of the liquid iron-nickel alloy.
  The dynamics of jets in rapidly rotating fluids by computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulation
  Dr P Livermore, Prof R Hollerbach
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The movement of electrically conducting liquid inside the core of Earth and other planets is responsible for generating their planetary magnetic fields, yet we know very little about their dynamics, as creating realistic simulations is extremely challenging.
  Fracture permeability response to the gas adsorption/desorption process in organic rocks by coupled Hydro–Mechanical modelling
  Dr G Quan, Dr K Wu
Applications accepted all year round
Gas adsorption/desorption is an essential process related to gas transport in fractured organic rocks, such as coals and organic-rich shales.
  Groundwater and nutrient dynamics in heterogeneous agricultural catchments - QUADRAT
  Dr J C Comte, Dr U Ofterdinger
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
In Irish and Scottish agricultural regions, groundwater is increasingly recognised as a major pathway for water and nutrient inputs to streams [1].
