  Dynamic and Calving Behaviour of Glacier-Ice Shelf Systems in the Antarctic Peninsula
  Prof D Benn
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
We invite applications from UK and EU candidates for a fully-funded PhD studentship, on modelling behaviour of the Larsen B ice shelf and its tributary glaciers, both before and after the major ice shelf disintegration event in 2002.
  Calving behaviour, glacier dynamics and glacier stability in Greenland
  Dr J Lea, Dr N Leonardi, Prof D Mair
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Introduction. The calving of icebergs represent a varied range of processes that are currently too complex to be fully integrated into large scale ice sheet models (Benn et al., 2007; 2017).
  Ice and fire: exploring relationships between glaciers, volcanoes and climate - QUADRAT
  Dr M Spagnolo, Dr D Mullan
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Mountain glacier surface mass balance responds to changes in climate. The glacier equilibrium line altitude (ELA), the elevation at which net accumulation equals net ablation, has been empirically linked to both precipitation and temperature.
  Controls on the causes, dynamics and impacts of the catastrophic mass flows (aluviónes), northern Patagonia, Chile.
  Dr A Russell
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This project is part of the ONE Planet DTP. Find out more here. https://research.ncl.ac.uk/one-planet/. Background. Glacier recession in mountainous regions is known to both reduce slope stability and also create potentially unstable proglacial lakes.
  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.
  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. https://research.ncl.ac.uk/one-planet/. Himalayan glaciers have shrunk rapidly in recent decades, coincident with climate warming.
  Modelling ice shelf collapse in Antarctica (Advert Reference: RDF19/EE/GES/DE RYDT)
  Dr J De Rydt
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
The Antarctic Ice Sheet is one of the largest contributors to global sea level change and its contribution may increase sharply in the near future.
  Determining the impact of seasonal meltwater on the subglacial hydrology and basal slipperiness of Icelandic glaciers
  Dr N Ross
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This project is part of the ONE Planet DTP. Find out more here. https://research.ncl.ac.uk/one-planet/. Seasonally varying subglacial hydrological systems have been implicated in both the speed up and slow down of glacier and ice sheet flow, through their influence on basal slipperiness.
  Mulit-sensor fusion for Ice-Mass studies over Greenland
  Dr S Edwards
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This project is part of the ONE Planet DTP. Find out more here. https://research.ncl.ac.uk/one-planet/. Project Description. Previously NERC supported research (Murray et.
  How are large permafrost rock faces responding to climate change? (Ref: OP19_06)
  Dr M Westoby
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Climate warming is causing dramatic changes to Earth’s mountain environments, which are becoming more developed as populations and economies expand.
