  Are glacial lake hazards increasing int eh Bhutan Hilmaya?
  Dr S Dunning
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This project is part of the ONE Planet DTP. Find out more here. Himalayan glaciers have shrunk rapidly in recent decades, coincident with climate warming.
  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.
  Geotechnical Properties of Glacial Tills: Engineering and Environmental Applications
  Dr D Hughes, Prof B Rea
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
"The geotechnical properties of a substrate (e.g. grain-size, permeability, shear strength) determines how it responds to natural and anthropogenic processes.
  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.
  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].
  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.
  YODASLAMS: YOunger DryAs Stadial Landform DynAMicS in Ireland
  Dr R Flood, Dr MS Spagnolo
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
"Rapid climatic changes, as occurred during the Late Glacial, can serve as an analogue for the present. During the Younger Dryas Stadial (Greenland Stadial‐1.
  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).
  Timing of large landslides and ice-melt controlled nutient cycling in their debris in Western Greenland
  Dr S Dunning
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This project is part of the ONE Planet DTP. Find out more here. Mass movements are the primary process to lower ice-free bedrock slopes above glaciers and ice sheets, and, key to post-glacial landscape change.
