  How does magma move through sill-complexes?
  Dr C Magee, Dr D Paton
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Understanding how magma intrusion controls the location of volcanoes and pre-eruption warning signals is critical to hazard assessment.
  Monitoring magma rheology-seismicity feedbacks during volcanic eruptions
  Prof Y Lavallee, Dr J Kendrick, Dr S De Angelis, Dr P Papale
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Volcanic eruptions are associated with a range of geophysical signals, including ground deformation and seismicity (Bean et al., 2014; Chouet and Matoza, 2013; Gottsmann et al., 2011).
  Going round the twist: The effect of stress on magma intrusion in Scotland and the Canary Islands
  Dr J Kavanagh, Prof a Biggin, Dr D Dennis, Dr B O'Driscoll
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Introduction. Magma is transported through the crust in fractures called dykes that cut across rock layers. Dykes are important in all stages in the life of a volcano; they transport magma from depth but may stall during ascent or reach the surface to feed eruptions (see Kavanagh 2018 for a review).
  Feeling hot, hot, hot! Harnessing energy from magma in New Zealand
  Dr J Kavanagh, Dr B Edwards, Dr G Kilgour
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Climate change, rising global populations, increasing energy consumption, and depletion of oil and gas reservoirs mean the exploitation of renewable energy resources, such as geothermal energy, is becoming increasingly important.
  Geodetic evidence for lateral magmatic connections at Chilean volcanoes
  Dr S Ebmeier, Dr D Ferguson, Prof A Hooper
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Knowing the location, volume and mobility of eruptible magma stored in the crust is critical for forecasting volcanic eruptions. Volcanic hazards threaten human life, health and livelihoods, so improvements to the way we interpret monitoring datasets, including deformation, have potential for real world impacts.
  The dynamics of magma storage and ascent beneath an active arc volcano (Villarrica, Chile)
  Dr D Ferguson, Dr D Morgan, Dr S Ebmeier
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Volcanic arcs, formed along convergent plate margins, produce most of Earth’s subaerial volcanic activity and are responsible for the largest and most devastating historical eruptions.
  Tectonomagmatic formation of Earth’s first continents, the Slaufrudalur Pluton, SE Iceland
  Dr A R Hastie, Dr C T Stevenson
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Earth is the only planet in our solar system that has distinctive oceanic and continental crust. Importantly, the growth of Earth’s first stable and preserved continental crust about 4 billion years ago modified the early mantle, hydrosphere and atmosphere and enabled terrestrial life to evolve.
  Olivine, magma and fluids: exploring the origin(s) of platinum-group element mineralization in the Main Zone of northern Bushveld Complex of South Africa.
  Dr I McDonald, Dr M A Millet
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Project Background. Long considered barren of metalliferous ore deposits, the gabbronorite dominated Main Zone of the northern limb of the Bushveld Complex of South Africa is now established as a new frontier for Ni-Cu-PGE mineralization [1].
  Squeeze and mingle: understanding the role of deformation-driven melt transport in mid-ocean ridge magma chambers (Bay of Islands ophiolite, Newfoundland, Canada)
  Prof C MacLeod, Dr C J Lissenberg
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Project Background. We now realise our conceptual view of magma chambers as large melt bodies is outmoded. that they are instead predominantly melt-poor crystal mushes1.
  The effects of minor intrusions on host rock properties: Testing alternative models for heat transfer from magma to host
  Dr R Walker, Dr A Miles
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Magmatic intrusion into porous sediments can result in localised host rock diagenetic effects (e.g., compaction of pore space, grain cataclasis, pore infilling, redistribution of cements), which can have significant impact on subsurface fluid flow.
