  Seasonal to sub-decadal variability of extreme wind storms over Europe
  Dr G C LECKEBUSCH
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Severe extra-tropical cyclones are the major natural hazard for the North-Atlantic/European region and especially for the UK. Extreme winter seasons may see up to 15-20 strong, partly damage prone events hitting, e.g.
  SCENARIO: Understanding forecast value in complex decision-making systems
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr D Brayshaw, Dr J Methven
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
A forecast is only useful to a decision-maker if it can be acted upon. and only valuable insofar as the resulting action leads to improved outcomes.
  Climates of the Caribbean: What are the drivers and impacts of ocean and climate variability for Caribbean Islands? (STEVENSUMTH19ARIES) [CASE project with Cefas]
  Prof D Stevens, Dr S Dye, Dr C Goodess, Dr J Pinnegar
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
This is a CASE project with Cefas. Scientific Background. The Caribbean Small Island Developing States face a variety of impacts from climate variability and climate change.
  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
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.
  Acoustic Detection of Rainfall using Ocean Gliders in the Tropical Indian Ocean (MATTHEWSAU19NERC)
  Prof A J Matthews, Dr R Hall
Application Deadline: 17 January 2019
A fully-funded PhD studentship is available in tropical meteorology and oceanography, as part of the NERC-funded TerraMaris project.
  Extreme weather in the tropics (MATTHEWSUENV19ARIES)
  Prof A J Matthews, Prof D Stevens, Dr M Joshi, Dr B Webber
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
Scientific background. Extreme weather in the tropics, particularly in the form of heavy rainfall and strong winds, can affect the livelihoods of the local population through flooding, landslides and impacts on agriculture and local infrastructure.
  How will the changing Indian Ocean influence the South Asian monsoon over the coming century? (WEBBERUENV19ARIES)
  Dr B Webber, Prof D Stevens, Dr M Joshi
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
Background. Climate change is expected to profoundly affect the South Asian (Indian) monsoon, with substantial impacts on the livelihoods of over a billion people.
  Observing ocean-atmosphere interaction from the poles to the tropics with an AutoNaut autonomous surface vehicle (HEYWOODUENV19ARIES) [CASE project with Autonaut Ltd]
  Prof K Heywood, Dr B Webber
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
This is a CASE project with Autonaut Ltd. Background. Typically the ocean absorbs heat from the atmosphere in tropical regions, and releases heat to the atmosphere in polar regions, thus regulating Earth’s climate.
  Statistical post-processing of ensemble forecasts of compound weather risk.
  Dr F Kwasniok
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership (GW4+ DTP).
  Chasing convective storm evolution with swarms of space-borne Ka-band radars
  Dr A Battaglia, Dr H Boesch
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Convective storms are the heart of the Earth’s weather and climate system.
