  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.
  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.
  A Volume and Mass Conserving Ocean Model for Climate Studies
  Dr M Morales Maqueda
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/. For technical reasons, current ocean models employed in climate research use what is called the Boussinesq approximation.
  Nutrient Resources in a Future Ocean
  Dr S Reynolds,, Dr F Ragazzola, Dr M Hale
Application Deadline: 17 February 2019
Applications are invited for a fully-funded three year PhD to commence in October 2019. The PhD will be based in the School of Earth and Environmental Sciences and will be supervised by Dr Sarah Reynolds, Dr Federica Ragazzola and Dr Michelle Hale.
  Better projections of ocean-driven ice loss from Antarctica.(Ref: OP19_52)
  Dr J De Rydt
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The Antarctic Ice Sheet is one of the largest contributors to global sea level rise and its contribution may increase sharply in the near future.
  Impact of recent climate change on phytoplankton composition in the Arctic Ocean
  Dr F Marret-Davies, Dr C Mahaffey
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
The Arctic Ocean is undergoing rapid environmental change. The Arctic is warming twice as fast as the global average. The areal extent of sea ice has declined by 9% per decade since 1978 (Comiso 2012).
  Towards a theory for the surface layer of the ocean: clarifying the contribution of non-breaking waves to the observed differences between the oceanic surface layer and its atmospheric counterpart
  Dr MA Teixeira, Dr A Grant
Applications accepted all year round
In this project we intend to clarify the contribution of non-breaking waves to the observed differences between the oceanic surface layer and its atmospheric counterpart, and to formulate a systematic description of its scaling properties regarding, for example, heat and momentum fluxes, as achieved for the atmosphere by Monin-Obukhov theory.
  Seasonal shifts in phytoplankton community structure in the Southern Ocean observed from space
  Dr H Bouman, Dr CM Moore, Dr A Martin, Dr S Henson
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Marine diatoms are key players in the ocean carbon cycle, responsible for ~ 20% of global marine productivity.
  Ocean wave field and climate monitoring with a GNSS Wave Glider
  Dr N Penna
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/. Ocean wave field monitoring is needed for climatology, as it controls the input of wind stress into the oceanic mixed layer and thereby serves as a control for the global ocean climate.
  Ocean drivers of Antarctic ice shelf melt and sea level rise: Understanding future changes (WEBBERBU19SCI-AFFJ)
  Dr B Webber, Prof K Heywood, Prof D Stevens
Application Deadline: 28 January 2019
Background. Sea level rise will threaten the livelihoods of over one billion people living close to coastlines and is one of the defining challenges of the 21st century.
