  Tropical land-use change and regional climate
  Dr D Spracklen
Application Deadline: 2 January 2019
Rapid deforestation and degradation are occurring across the tropics. This land-use change impacts the surface energy balance, water and carbon cycles through changes to land-surface properties and through smoke emitted by forest and vegetation fires (Spracklen et al., 2018).
  Land use change monitoring from satellites using artificial intelligence
  Prof H Balzter, Dr A Zhang
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Recent advances in computing technology, cloud computing and high-performance computing are paralleled with those in advanced artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms and significant investment in the European Copernicus Earth Observation programme and its Sentinel satellite missions.
  Linking sustainable land management with biodiversity conservation in Nepal
  Prof L Stringer, Dr M Dallimer
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Land degradation and biodiversity loss are important environmental challenges that directly affect human livelihoods and development.
  How do changes in the land surface influence climate?
  Research Group: Atmospheric Science
  Dr L Garcia-Carreras, Prof G Vaughan, Prof D Schultz
Application Deadline: 6 February 2019
Land-use change represents an important component of anthropogenic climate change, with nearly 40% of the Earth’s ice-free surface already converted to cropland or pasture.
  Advancing the development and application of spatial decision support tools for the sustainable reuse of brownfield land
  Dr D Beriro, Dr F Coulon
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
CENTA2 is a consortium of research intensive Universities and research institutes that are working together to provide excellence in doctoral research training.
  Deforestation, forest degradation and fire in the tropics
  Dr D Spracklen
Application Deadline: 2 January 2019
The aim of this PhD project is to understand the links between tropical deforestation, forest degradation and fire and to quantify the impacts on regional air quality and climate.
  How does alternative land use policy in deltas affect food production and development: A case of the Mahanadi?
  Prof J Dash, Prof EL Tompkins
Application Deadline: 12 January 2019
Developing country river deltas are climate change hotspots and these are in urgent need of transdisciplinary research to address the drivers of social and physical vulnerability (Cochrane et al., 2017).
  Land Justice and Human Rights: using international and regional human rights mechanisms to protect land and land users.
  Prof R Freedman
Applications accepted all year round
Traditionally, issues relating to land have fallen outside of the international human rights matrix.
  Field scale reconstruction of nineteenth century rural land use using first County Series OS maps and parish area books
  Prof N S Walford, Dr D Brown
Applications accepted all year round
The project will explore agricultural land use change in mid-nineteenth century England, which was a period of relatively high prosperity and stability before the onset of an era of decline and depression from the early 1870s through to the twentieth century.
  Modelling temporal changes in biodiversity as a function of land-use change in Indonesia
  Dr T Matthews, Dr J P Sadler, Dr T Pugh, Dr NE Barrand
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
The reported impacts of forest loss and land-use change are almost universally negative, and habitat loss more generally is argued to be the biggest driver of the current extinction crisis (Sala et al., 2000; Haddad et al., 2015).
