  Low-Carbon Energy Recovery from Methane Hydrate Reservoirs
  Dr P Jadhawar, Dr W Afzal
Applications accepted all year round
Naturally occurring gas (mostly methane) hydrates along the continental margins (coastal offshore) and permafrost sediments are the clean source of energy outnumbering the rest forms of conventional energy sources.
  Predicting future methane release from the seabed due to Arctic warming and sea ice retreat
  Dr Y Aksenov, Dr H Moreno, Dr B Sinha, Prof T Minshull
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Project Rationale. Methane hydrate is an ice-like substance that is stable at high pressures and low temperatures and is present beneath the seabed on continental margins.
  Plant adaptations to wetland conditions as regulators of methane oxidation and emissions from tropical wetlands
  Dr S Sjögersten
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
Natural wetlands are the greatest emitters of atmospheric methane. Plants are important controls of this as they can both stimulate high methane production and suppress emissions by releasing oxygen into the ground supporting bacterially mediated oxidation of methane drastically cutting emissions.
  Seismically triggered greenhouse gas eruptions from carbon rich wetland environments
  Dr N Kettridge, Dr S Ullah, Prof S Krause
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Wetlands represent the largest and most uncertain global methane source (Kirschke et al., 2013).
  Microbial methane cycling in Scottish peatlands
  Research Group: Institute of Life and Earth Sciences
  Dr J Pratscher, Prof P A Wookey
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Peatlands are one of Scotland’s most important natural assets, cover over 20% of Scotland’s land area, and they are estimated to store around 1,600 Mt of carbon.
  Isotopic characterisation of methane and ethane within groundwater aquifers: assessing sources, flow pathways and the impact of shale gas exploration in the Vale of Pickering, UK
  Dr A Smith
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
Hydraulic fracturing (‘fracking’) is highly controversial with public concerns over environmental impacts, not least the risks to groundwater.
  Emissions of Greenhouse Gases from Extensive Agriculture in the Indio-Gangetic Plain
  Dr H Boesch, Dr H Sembhi
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Agriculture is the world’s second-largest emitter of damaging greenhouse gases (GHG) after the energy sector. The future growth of the global population will result in additional pressures on the agricultural sector to secure food production whilst aiming to reduce GHG emissions.
  Quaternary and methylated amine cycle in coastal oceans: new genes, novel microbes and unexpected pathways
  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
  Dr Y Chen, Dr K Purdy
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Project Highlights. New genes and novel microbes. Unexpected pathways. World-leading supervisory team on climate-change microbiology.
  Low temperature steam reforming of methane for hydrogen production
  Dr P Kechagiopoulos, Prof J Anderson
Applications accepted all year round
Hydrogen, a primary raw material of the chemical industry, presents significant potential as an energy carrier that can drive the implementation of highly efficient energy systems at a reduced environmental impact.
  Assessment of fugitive methane gas emissions from UK fracking operations using unmanned aerial vehicle surveys and fixed-site monitoring (CASE studentship)
  Dr G Allen, Dr P Williams, Dr H Ricketts
Application Deadline: 6 February 2019
CASE STUDENTSHIP WITH ENVIROTECH LIMITED. Measuring and monitoring greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from industry informs many environmental process studies, ranging from shorter-term assessments of air quality and its impacts on human health, to longer term understanding of climate change.
