  The titanium isotope composition of seawater: a new oceanographic tracer?
  Dr M A Millet, Dr M Andersen
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Project Background. The chemistry of oceans is the result of a balance between inputs (e.g. weathering of landmasses) and outputs (e.g.
  Continental weathering and secular evolution of redox-sensitive isotope systematics
  Dr M Andersen, Dr M A Millet
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Project Background. The weathering of continental crust is a major driver of Earth’s climate. It helps regulate atmospheric CO2 content as well as provides soluble ions to the oceans.
  Lithium isotopes in foraminifera: a new proxy for the ocean carbonate system?
  Prof R James, Prof G Foster
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Project Rationale. The lithium (Li) isotope composition of tiny shells of marine plankton (foraminifera) preserved in sediment cores is traditionally thought to record past variations in the Li isotopic composition of seawater (e.g.
  Lead isotope ratio measurements in microcosms and avian samples as indicators for the source of lead poisoning in wildfowl
  Dr J Barker, Dr S Barton
Applications accepted all year round
Lead (Pb) poisoning is commonly linked amongst anthropogenically-caused deaths in waterfowl and this is often associated with hunting and fishing activities.
  Late Quaternary palaeohydrological and palaeoecological reconstruction in southern Africa using leaf wax lipids
  Dr A Carr, Dr A Boom
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
The sub-tropics of Africa responded sensitively to Pleistocene glacial-interglacial climatic change, as evidenced by the formation of palaeo-lakes and the activity of now relict dune systems.
  Investigating the presence of a recycled component in the Azores mantle source
  Research Group: Geoscience
  Dr B O'Driscoll, Prof R Burgess, Dr G Holland
Application Deadline: 6 February 2019
The Azores archipelago is considered unusual as an example of oceanic intraplate volcanism for a variety of reasons1,2. One is the extreme range in trace element and radiogenic isotope (Sr-Nd-Pb-Hf) signatures that its basalt products exhibit.
  Isotope-enabled climate modelling to better understand long-term rainfall dynamics in North Africa
  Dr P Hopcroft, Dr M Widmann, Dr G C LECKEBUSCH
Applications accepted all year round
Project highlights. Study climate in a region that is particularly vulnerable to future change. Use isotope-enabled and high-resolution climate model simulations to investigate how the Sahara became ‘Green’ 9000-4000 years ago.
  Isotopic fingerprints of carbonyl sulfide (COS) in atmosphere and biosphere (KAISERJU19SF)
  Prof J Kaiser
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
Background. Carbonyl sulfide (COS) is a sulfur-analogue of CO2. It is the most abundant atmospheric sulfur compound and has a lifetime of 2 to 4 years.
  Isotopic fingerprints of carbonyl sulfide (COS) in atmosphere and biosphere (KAISERUENV19ARIES)
  Prof J Kaiser, Dr A Marca, Dr P Suntharalingam, Prof T Roeckmann
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
Background. Carbonyl sulfide (COS) is a sulfur-analogue of CO2. It is the most abundant atmospheric sulfur compound and has a lifetime of 2 to 4 years.
  DTC PHYS 8 - Laser ablation molecular isotope spectroscopy (LAMIS) of paleoenvironmental materials.
  Dr W Bryan
Applications accepted all year round
A record of environmental characteristics such as ocean acidity, atmospheric opacity, rainfall and temperature are "encoded" into paleoenvironmental samples such as tree rings, sediments and pollen, where the signature of variability is the amount of naturally occurring isotopes containing carbon and oxygen.
