Microplastics and carbon sequestration: identifying links and impacts

Project Rationale. The downward sinking flux of marine organic particles (e.g. as marine snow and faecal pellets) removes large amounts of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere to the deep ocean where it is stored for centuries – a process known as the biological carbon pump (BCP). Read more

Improving the representation of the ice shelf ocean cavity circulation in global ocean models (OP2209)

Global sea-level rise is one of the most severe impacts of climate change which threatens large coastal cities and ecosystems. Sea-level rise originates from several sources, including melting of glaciers and ice sheets. Read more

Climate, water and society in arid regions: from ancient civilizations to the Anthropocene

The largest region of arid climate stretches from North Africa, across the Middle East and into Central Asia. In these regions, water availability is an important restriction and yet this is where the first cities, first kingdoms and first empires rose and fell. Read more

Autonomous technologies and the marine carbon cycle: Impacts of coastal processes on ocean acidification and blue carbon. NERC GW4+ DTP PhD studentship for 2022 Entry, PhD in Biosciences.

Project Background. Recent environmental and climate initiatives such as ‘habitat restoration’ and ‘Blue Carbon’ aim to increase local biodiversity, support carbon removal from the atmosphere, and alleviate the impacts of stressors such as ocean acidification and deoxygenation. Read more

Understanding changes in temperature persistence under global warming

A fully-funded PhD studentship is available in the physics of climate change. The project will focus on changes in surface temperature “persistence” - or “memory” under climate change. Read more

SCENARIO: Toward next generation sea ice models: taking the rough with the smooth? (ref: SC2022_01)

Sea ice, formed from the freezing of ocean water, covers a large fraction of the polar oceans and plays a central role in the climate system, moderating air-ocean transfers of heat, moisture and momentum, and moderating global patterns of atmospheric and oceanic circulation. Read more

Microbial and biogeochemical processes through the ocean-sediment continuum

  Research Group: Earth Surface Science
The interface between the ocean and subseafloor sediments is a critical boundary that influences life in the deep biosphere, the transport and transformation of organic carbon and nutrients, and the global carbon cycle. Read more

Improving the utility of ocean colour satellites in marine systems science

Ocean colour satellites have revolutionised our capacity to characterise surface ocean ecosystems and biogeochemistry, allowing continuous global observation that would be impossible from any other platform. Read more

Predicting the Long-Term Changes in Earth's Magnetic Field

Earth's core has generated a magnetic field for billions of years; however, the nature of that field has varied considerably through time for reasons that are still poorly understood. Read more
