  Towards a theory for the surface layer of the ocean: clarifying the contribution of non-breaking waves to the observed differences between the oceanic surface layer and its atmospheric counterpart
  Dr MA Teixeira, Dr A Grant
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this project we intend to clarify the contribution of non-breaking waves to the observed differences between the oceanic surface layer and its atmospheric counterpart, and to formulate a systematic description of its scaling properties regarding, for example, heat and momentum fluxes, as achieved for the atmosphere by Monin-Obukhov theory.
  Passive cooling in cities: a multi-scale modelling approach
  Dr Z Luo, Prof S Grimmond, Dr T Sun
Application Deadline: 5 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Passive cooling (e.g. Natural ventilation) is regarded as an important building technology to reduce energy consumption, overheating risk and promote sustainability in the built environment.
  Data synthesis and integration for improved climate impact assessment, modelling and policy
  Dr R Cornforth, Dr E Tarnavsky
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change is already demonstrated in changes in the frequency and severity of extreme weather events.
  Evaluating and improving high-resolution high-impact weather numerical weather forecasts
  Dr RS Plant, Dr T Stein
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Over the past decade, high-resolution numerical weather forecasting has become practical using so-called “convection-permitting” models for lead times of 1-24 hours.
  Improving our understanding of ice cloud microphysics using new aircraft and multi-wavelength radar measurements
  Dr C Westbrook, Dr T Stein, Dr S Mason
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ice particles in clouds play an important role for both weather and climate prediction. Half of all precipitation globally is initiated through the formation of ice, while the radiative impact of ice clouds is very important because of their widespread coverage.
  Earth Observation Vacancies (up to 10 posts)

Funding Type

PhD Type

 The Plymouth Marine Laboratory (PML) Earth Observation Science group has a world-class reputation in fundamental research on climate change and biogeochemical pools and cycles in aquatic systems; aquatic ecosystem and human health; and sustainable development issues in ocean, coastal and inland water environments.
  Measuring vulnerability and resilience to climate change-induced shocks in developing economies
  Prof R Cornforth, Dr L Todman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change is already demonstrated by changes in the frequency and severity of extreme weather events.
  Coupled carbon, water and heat fluxes over the global land surface
  Prof K Haines, Dr TL Quaife, Dr D Hemming
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Simulating changes to the Earth’s energy, water and carbon cycles is a key goal of climate and earth system models.
  Electric dust storms: environmental challenges and impacts
  Prof G Harrison, Dr C Ryder, Dr K.A. Nicoll
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mineral dust aerosol is a major component of the Earth-Atmosphere system, comprising 70% of the global aerosol mass burden.
  Flow processes and turbulent exchange in urban canopies
  Dr J Barlow, Dr O Coceal
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Most of the world’s population now experiences an urban version of weather extremes and climate change. Accurate forecasting of weather and air quality in cities relies on correctly representing the physics of turbulent exchange between the surface and the overlying atmosphere.
