  Climates of the Caribbean: What are the drivers and impacts of ocean and climate variability for Caribbean Islands? (STEVENSUMTH19ARIES) [CASE project with Cefas]
  Prof D Stevens, Dr S Dye, Dr C Goodess, Dr J Pinnegar
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
This is a CASE project with Cefas. Scientific Background. The Caribbean Small Island Developing States face a variety of impacts from climate variability and climate change.
  Marine Soundscapes – discriminating and understanding biological and anthropogenic sources from autonomous vehicles
  Dr J Bull, Dr P White
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Project Rationale. Sound is central to the way marine mammals and many fish species communicate, search for prey, and navigate to avoid predators and hazards.
  Climate change effects on coastal flooding: are models fit-for-purpose and how do we mitigate the risk?
  Dr P Robins
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
Coastal flooding has been ranked the second highest risk for civil emergency in the UK, costing £0.25bn annually in economic loss.
  Dispersal of Microplastics in the Marine Environment
  Dr S Neill
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
With an estimated 8 million tonnes of plastic entering our oceans each year, marine plastics are one of the biggest and most immediate threats facing the marine environment.
  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.
  How will the changing Indian Ocean influence the South Asian monsoon over the coming century? (WEBBERUENV19ARIES)
  Dr B Webber, Prof D Stevens, Dr M Joshi
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
Background. Climate change is expected to profoundly affect the South Asian (Indian) monsoon, with substantial impacts on the livelihoods of over a billion people.
  Observing ocean-atmosphere interaction from the poles to the tropics with an AutoNaut autonomous surface vehicle (HEYWOODUENV19ARIES) [CASE project with Autonaut Ltd]
  Prof K Heywood, Dr B Webber
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
This is a CASE project with Autonaut Ltd. Background. Typically the ocean absorbs heat from the atmosphere in tropical regions, and releases heat to the atmosphere in polar regions, thus regulating Earth’s climate.
  Dynamics, instability and tracer spreading in a hydrothermal plume
  Prof R Williams, Dr A Tagliabue, Dr C Spingys, Prof R Mills
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Project Summary. Hydrothermal plumes provide important inputs of trace metals into the deep ocean and these trace metals are often used as tracers of plume dispersion.
  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.
  Predicting future methane release from the seabed due to Arctic warming and sea ice retreat
  Dr Y Aksenov, Dr H Moreno, Dr B Sinha, Prof T Minshull
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Project Rationale. Methane hydrate is an ice-like substance that is stable at high pressures and low temperatures and is present beneath the seabed on continental margins.
