  Machine Learning In Biostratigraphy
  Dr I Boomer
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Quantitative or semi-quantitative biostratigraphic data (microfossil occurrences in well and outcrop samples) are routinely collected within the hydrocarbon industry, but the interpretation of the data in terms of age/biozone and palaeoenvironment (which then feeds into other aspects of the exploration process) can be laborious, requiring access to specialist knowledge.
  Dinoflagellate cysts and palaeoenvironmental change during Cretaceous oceanic anoxic events: a study of OAE1a
  Prof I Jarvis, Prof G Gillmore
Applications accepted all year round
This project will study Cretaceous dinoflagellate cysts. It seeks to understand relationships between dinocysts, a proxy for marine nutrient availability and organic zooplankton fertility, and episodes of black shale (petroleum source rock) deposition during Oceanic Anoxic Events (OAEs) in the mid-Cretaceous.
  Drivers of marine ecosystem change during an ancient abrupt global warming event
  Dr K Edgar, Dr R Butler
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
The Palaeocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum (PETM) ~56 million years ago, is the largest of a series of abrupt global warming events known from the Cenozoic.
  Life and Environment During Rapid Climatic Warming 56 million Years Ago: A Geological Analogue for the Future (PEDENTCHOUKUENV19ARIES)
  Dr N Pedentchouk, Dr M Chapman, Mr P Dennis
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
Rationale and Significance. One of the most extreme global warming events in the geologic past took place at the boundary between the Palaeocene and Eocene.
  Tracking the ancient Indian monsoon: investigating the geochemistry of deep-sea sediments from the Bay of Bengal and Andaman Sea
  Dr K Littler, Dr B.D.A. Naafs, Prof R Pancost, Dr I Bailey
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).
  Late Quaternary palaeohydrological and palaeoecological reconstruction in southern Africa using leaf wax lipids
  Dr A Carr, Dr A Boom
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
The sub-tropics of Africa responded sensitively to Pleistocene glacial-interglacial climatic change, as evidenced by the formation of palaeo-lakes and the activity of now relict dune systems.
  Evolution of Antarctic circumpolar oceanic circulation and high-latitude climate
  Dr S Bohary, Prof P Wilson
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Project Rationale. The flow of the Antarctic Circumpolar Current (ACC) through the Drake Passage is the primary conduit for modern surface and deep-water communication between the Pacific and Atlantic basins.
