  Faster, greener, and more competitive? How will vegetation alter in a changing Antarctic? (a project from the SENSE Centre for Doctoral Training)
  Dr C Colesie, Prof M Williams
Application Deadline: 19 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The unique Antarctic terrestrial vegetation serves as an early warning system in understanding ecosystem responses to climate change.
  Finding the Missing Dry Forests: Using Earth Observation Data to Determine where are the Dry Forests of Africa And Asia (part of the SENSE Centre for Doctoral Training)
  Dr K Dexter, Dr C Ryan
Application Deadline: 20 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Summary. The student will build statistical models that relate the presence of dry forest in the Neotropics to remotely sensed parameters, such as NDVI, tree density and fire frequency.
  How is climate change altering productivity and carbon storage across Arctic tundra? (part of the SENSE Centre for Doctoral Training)
  Prof M Williams
Application Deadline: 19 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. The Arctic is warming faster than any other land region, and its vegetation is responding, with adjustments to plant cover, phenology and growth.
  Ice-ocean-atmosphere interactions in the Arctic (part of the SENSE Centre for Doctoral Training)
  Dr N Gourmelen, Dr E Frajka-Williams
Application Deadline: 19 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background and Rationale. The Arctic holds 3.07 ± 0.02 106 km3 of land-ice, for an equivalent potential sea level rise of 7.6 m.
  Image processing and machine learning applied to Earth Observation of the cryosphere (part of the SENSE Centre for Doctoral Training).
  Dr R Bingham, Dr N Gourmelen
Application Deadline: 19 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A number of recent studies have begun to highlight the potential to analyse remote sensing imagery to monitor changes that have occurred to the Earth’s ice sheets, ice caps and glaciers over the last few decades.
  The response of savannas and dry forests to global change: disentangling the effects of climate change, land use and changing CO2 (part of the SENSE Centre for Doctoral Training)
  Dr C Ryan
Application Deadline: 19 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project background. Savannas and dry forests are in flux, with both increasing and decreasing woody biomass in many areas. Why this is happening is unknown, but it is thought to be linked to both local land-use (e.g.
  Sequential Bayesian inference for spatio-temporal probabilistic models of global Leaf Area Index change using Earth Observation data (part of the SENSE Centre for Doctoral Training)
  Dr V Elvira
Application Deadline: 19 January 2020

CASE PARTNER. SPACE INTELLIGENCE LTD - http://www.space-intelligence.com. The Earth’s vegetation is changing as a result of both human activity and climate change.
  Developing a new methodology for assessing future food production based on machine learning, remote sensing and crop models (part of the SENSE Centre for Doctoral Training)
  Dr A Challinor
Application Deadline: 19 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD combines remote sensing, crop models and machine learning in order to produce improved projections of future food production.
  Hazard monitoring from Space: Next generation InSAR time series analysis (part of the SENSE Centre for Doctoral Training)
  Prof A Hooper
Application Deadline: 19 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Radar Interferometry (InSAR) is a technique that provides measurements of surface displacement from Space, potentially with millimetric accuracy.
  Impact of long-term changes to ice-cover and permafrost on landslide and flood risk in the Swiss Alps (part of the SENSE Centre for Doctoral Training)
  Dr A Abellan, Dr H Pritchard, Dr J West, Dr J Elliott
Application Deadline: 19 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

CONTEXT / BACKGROUND. High mountainous areas all over the world are highly prone to multiple hazards, including interacting landslides and flooding, which cascade across national borders, affecting critical economic infrastructure and human settlements.
