Showing 1 to 10 of 38
  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.
  The role of Antarctic sea ice in glacial-interglacial climatic transitions
  Dr Louise Sime, Dr A Marzocchi
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Project Rationale. Since the onset of the Northern Hemisphere glaciation, Earth’s climate has undergone large transitions between cold “glacial” and warm “interglacial” stages.
  Tracing iron cycling from the ice sheets to the polar oceans
  Dr A Annett, Dr M Lohan
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Project Rationale. The polar oceans play a significant role in climate through uptake of anthropogenic carbon and heat via biological and physical mechanisms.
  Impact of sea level rise on atmospheric CO2 concentration over glacial-deglacial periods
  Dr T Rippeth
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
One of the great under-answered questions in the geosciences relates to the cause of the big drop in the concentration of CO2 in the preindustrial atmosphere during ice ages.
  Understanding vegetation response to fire during glacial and interglacial states.
  Prof S Harrison
Application Deadline: 1 March 2019
Fire is highly sensitive to changes in climate, which affects both fuel availability and on the suitability of conditions allowing fire spread.
  Sediment flux in and around the Sør Rondans Mountains in East Antarctica (RDF19/EE/GES/WINTER)
  Dr K Winter
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Sediments in glacial systems can alter frictional stress at the glacier bed, modify ice flow speeds and change ice flow direction through long-term erosive processes.
  Warm climate, high seas. How did sea level change in Europe during the Last Interglacial?
  Dr N Barlow, Dr L Gregoire
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The big picture. Global sea-level rise is one of our greatest environmental challenges and is predicted to continue for hundreds of years, even if global greenhouse-gas emissions are stopped immediately (Clark et al., 2016).
  Resolving the frequency of mass movement events with new luminescence dating techniques
  Dr R Smedley, Dr E Mariani, Dr S Dunning, Dr J-P Buylaert
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Introduction. Luminescence dating is a geochronological technique important for reconstructing past environments on Earth over the last million years (see Smedley, 2018 for details).
  Phylogeography of European ungulates from the last interglacial period and their subsequent evolution
  Prof AR Hoelzel
Application Deadline: 12 January 2019
This study will use next generation sequencing methods to explore the genetic diversity of deer and other ungulates from the Eemian interglacial period, ~120,000 years ago.
  Understanding how Antarctic Ice Sheets control the climate of Antarctica (Advert Reference: RDF19/EE/GES/ROBERTS)
  Dr W Roberts
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
This project will unravel how the size and shape of Antarctica influences its climate. One of the key predictions of climate models is “polar amplification”.
