  Shedding light on ocean photosynthesis
  Dr A Hickman, Dr S Sathyendranath, Dr T Bibby
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Project Rationale. The ocean contains millions of single celled plants called phytoplankton that form the base of the marine food web.
  The effects of ocean climate change on environmental niches of pelagic sharks
  Prof D Sims, Dr R Marsh
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Programme website. http://inspire-dtp.ac.uk. Project Rationale. Shifts in the distributions and abundance of marine organisms are occurring globally as a major consequence of climate change.
  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.
  Can ocean gliders improve our ocean forecast models? (HALLUENV19ARIES) [CASE project with Cefas]
  Dr R Hall, Dr J Graham
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
This is a CASE project with Cefas. Scientific Rationale. The shallow seas over continental shelves are an important sink in the global carbon cycle and therefore have a large impact on Earth’s climate.
  Assimilation of ocean colour data to constrain the state and parameters of marine biogeochemical models.
  Dr S Roy
Applications accepted all year round
Marine biogeochemical models are run as part of Earth system and climate models, to assess the contribution of marine biology to the carbon cycle, and the response of marine ecosystems to a changing climate.
  Not just going with the flow: does biological production rather than deep water formation drive the Southern Ocean carbon sink?
  Dr P Brown, Dr Y Firing, Prof A Naveira-Garabato
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Programme website. http://inspire-dtp.ac.uk. Project Rationale.
  Ocean Sulfate and Earth’s Surface Evolution
  Dr R Newton, Dr B Mills, Dr T Aze, Prof L Benning
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Ocean sulfate is an underappreciated control on the evolution of Earth’s surface environment. Sulfate concentrations have changed a lot over the course of Earth’s history, but the effect on the biogeochemical cycles of other elements and the links to evolutionary events has received relatively little attention.
  Physical drivers of plankton variability in a shelf sea
  Prof J Sharples, Dr C Mahaffey, Dr J Hopkins, Dr J Polton
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Introduction. The phytoplankton, microscopic single-celled plants that drift with the ocean currents, play two key roles in the ocean.
  The impact of variability in atmospheric forcing on organic carbon sequestration in the Southern Ocean
  Dr A Martin, Dr D Jones, Prof A Naveira-Garabato
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Programme website. http://inspire-dtp.ac.uk. Project Rationale. The water masses leaving the Southern Ocean form a major conduit of atmospheric carbon into the interior of all ocean basins.
  The Ice Age, oceans and climate: triggers of iceberg calving and rapid temperature change
  Dr R Ivanovic, Dr L Gregoire
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
This PhD project will use climate/ice-sheet modelling to establish the complex chain of events that took place early in the last deglaciation, linking catastrophic ice sheet collapse, iceberg armadas, rapid cooling, abrupt warming and the complete reorganisation of largescale Atlantic Ocean circulation.
