  Mountain soil resilience to land-use and climate extremes
  Prof N Ostle
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
Can our upland landscapes provide clean drinking water, store carbon, maintain biodiversity, act as a platform for leisure activities and provide a rural…
  Simulating evolving snow proceses in the changing climate of High Mountain Asia
  Dr N Forsythe
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This project is part of the ONE Planet DTP. Find out more here. https://research.ncl.ac.uk/one-planet/. River flows originating in High Mountain Asia (HMA) – i.e.
  Climate change impacts on cold-adapted butterflies: discovering the mechanisms and testing potential mitigation approaches
  Dr R Menendez
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
Cold-adapted species, including those restricted to mountains, are highly vulnerable to climate change. For UK butterflies, cold-adapted species are similarly threatened by climate change mediated decline, with some species demonstrating range retractions concurrent with recent warming.
  Exploring Design Opportunities for Context-Adaptive Collaborative Tools to Support and Enhance Drone-assisted Search and Rescue (SAR) Operations
  Dr N Verdezoto, Dr M Hoffman
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Every year hundreds of people are reporting missing in mountains and national parks in the UK. The extreme changes in weather conditions, reductions in statutory services budgets as well as the lack of resources and training make rescuing operations more challenging.
  Ice and fire: exploring relationships between glaciers, volcanoes and climate - QUADRAT
  Dr M Spagnolo, Dr D Mullan
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Mountain glacier surface mass balance responds to changes in climate. The glacier equilibrium line altitude (ELA), the elevation at which net accumulation equals net ablation, has been empirically linked to both precipitation and temperature.
  Impartial third party interventions in wild chimpanzees
  Dr N Koyama
Application Deadline: 18 February 2019
Applicants are invited to apply for a project that will be in competition for funding for an internal university award. The outcome of the application will be determined by several factors including the quality of the candidate.
  If a slope in Antarctica falls down does it matter? Quantifying landslide erosion rates, timing, and the transport of debris
  Dr S Dunning
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This project is part of the ONE Planet DTP. Find out more here. https://research.ncl.ac.uk/one-planet/. Mass movements are the primary process to lower ice-free bedrock slopes above glaciers and ice sheets.
  What comes before the slide and where does it all go? Pre-failure deformation and debris tracking of large slope failures using time-series remote sensing
  Dr S Dunning
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This project is part of the ONE Planet DTP. Find out more here. https://research.ncl.ac.uk/one-planet/. Our CASE partner (Dan Holdsworth Studios) are keen to appropriate cutting-edge Science data in areas of extreme change in the mountains of the world.
  Greenhouse Gas Cycling in Supraglacial Debris Covers (Ref: OP19_63)
  Prof B Brock
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Debris-covered glaciers extend over 4000 km2 in the high Asian Mountains and are significant and expanding features of most of the World’s glacierized mountain ranges.
  How are large permafrost rock faces responding to climate change? (Ref: OP19_06)
  Dr M Westoby
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Climate warming is causing dramatic changes to Earth’s mountain environments, which are becoming more developed as populations and economies expand.
