  Forensic oceanography: how does winter leave a fingerprint in the ocean? (ZHAIUENV20ARIES)
  Dr X Zhai, Prof K Heywood
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

SCIENTIFIC BACKGROUND. The Southern Ocean is a critical component of the global climate system, accounting for about 75% of ocean heat uptake and 40% of ocean anthropogenic carbon uptake.
  Climates of the Caribbean: What are the drivers and impacts of ocean and climate variability for Caribbean Islands? (STEVENSUMTH20ARIES)
  Prof D Stevens, Dr S Dye, Dr J Graham, Dr J Pinnegar
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

SCIENTIFIC BACKGROUND. The Caribbean Small Island Developing States face a variety of impacts from climate variability and climate change.
  Pathways to Realistic Impact Modelling in Estuarine Areas (PRIMEA)
  Dr P Robins, Dr S Neill
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Estuaries connect terrestrial and marine environments, providing one of the most productive ecosystems on Earth. Complex land-sea interactions combined with intensive land-use and land-value mean that they are at heightened risk from flooding and poor health.
  Deluge or drought? Climate change and South Asian Monsoon rainfall (WEBBERUENV20ARIES)
  Dr B Webber, Prof D Stevens, Prof M Joshi, Dr AG Turner
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

BACKGROUND. Climate change is expected to profoundly affect the South Asian (Indian) monsoon, with substantial impacts on the livelihoods of over a billion people.
  How does the ocean influence glacial melt in the Amundsen Sea, Antarctica? (HALLUENV20ARIES)
  Dr R Hall, Prof K Heywood
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

SCIENTIFIC BACKGROUND. The Amundsen Sea glaciers in West Antarctica are rapidly melting in response to recent climate warming and related changes in ocean circulation, increasing estimates of future sea level rise.
  Will coupling the Met Office forecast model to an ocean model improve weather predictions in the tropics? (MATTHEWSUENV20ARIES)
  Prof A J Matthews, Dr B Webber
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Scientific background. Numerical weather prediction (NWP) is the main tool behind weather forecasting of rainfall, temperature, winds and other meteorological variables.
  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

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Arctic sea-ice decline: An ‘opening’ for more wind energy input to the ocean?
  Dr Y Lenn, Dr T Rippeth
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Arctic summers are now characterized by ever-expanding areas of open water exposed by the declining sea ice. This dramatic decline has input fresh meltwater to the surface ocean and created more openings for direct exchange of heat, freshwater and momentum (i.e.
  Microplastic-sediment interactions (MiPSi)
  Research Group: Earth Surface Science
  Dr K Spencer, Prof G Wharton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The accelerating global release of microplastics (mP) into the aquatic environment seems inevitable, with long-term consequences for water quality and biodiversity.
  Atmospheric measurements and modelling to support the Montreal Protocol and international climate agreements (NERC GW4+ DTP)
  Dr M Rigby, Prof S O'Doherty, Prof A Manning
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type
