  New North Atlantic Palaeo-Temperature Reconstruction from Terrestrial Sedimentary Archives: Implications for the Influence of the Icelandic Plume on Oceanic Circulation and Climate
  Dr S Jones, Dr J Bendle
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
The Icelandic Plume is the most vigorous mantle convection cell within Earth’s mantle at present. The Greenland-Scotland Ridge (GSR) is the hotspot track of the Icelandic Plume and forms one of the most important gateways in the global circulation system.
  Understanding regional basin evolution through integrated global palaeo-Earth systems models and numerical stratigraphic forward modelling
  Prof P Burgess, Prof D Faulkner
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Palaeo-Earth systems models (PESMs) calculating palaeoclimate, denudation and palaeo-oceanic tides and currents could potentially provide important input parameters useful for process-based forward modelling approaches to reservoir prediction.
  Devonian Tropical Plant Assemblages from Arctic Svalbard
  Dr C Berry
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Project Background. The Devonian period (419-359 million years ago) is the critical time in Earth history when land plants evolved from being ankle high simple branched naked twigs to being leafy trees growing in complex forest ecosystems (Stein et al.
  Reconstructing lost worlds – Quaternary continental Ostracoda as tools in geoarchaeology
  Dr P Frenzel
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Ostracods are one of the main palaeontological proxies in Quaternary continental systems because of their ecological sensitiveness, wide distribution, often high abundance and high diversity.
  Sediment flux in and around the Sør Rondans Mountains in East Antarctica (RDF19/EE/GES/WINTER)
  Dr K Winter
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Sediments in glacial systems can alter frictional stress at the glacier bed, modify ice flow speeds and change ice flow direction through long-term erosive processes.
  NERC Reconstructing past temperatures from the terrestrial Southern Hemisphere over the last 20,000 years
  Dr B.D.A. Naafs
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
A NERC GW4 +DTP2 Project. Project PDF. https://www.bristol.ac.uk/media-library/sites/chemistry/documents/Reconstructing%20past%20temperatures%20from%20the%20terrestrial%20Southern%20Hemisphere%20-%20GW4%20%20NERC%20DTP%202019.pdf.
  PhD in Geographical & Earth Sciences: High Resolution Palaeoenvironmental Reconstruction from Lake Suigetsu, Japan
  Dr R Staff, Prof M Leng
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
In light of 21st century anthropogenically-influenced climatic change, one of the main scientific endeavours of our generation is to gain a fundamental understanding of the earth’s climate system.
  NERC Panorama Doctoral Training Partnership - Productivity crises in past and future oceans: what ancient crises tell us about future threats to marine ecosystems
  Dr D Bond
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
The world’s oceans and their ecosystems are under threat from anthropogenic activities that are interacting to produce complex changes like never before.
  A predator-prey arms race in Mesozoic oceans: Is there evidence of changes in trophic structure and trait evolution that indicate evolutionary escalation in Mesozoic oceans?
  Dr A Dunhill, Dr A Beckerman, Dr J Dunne, Prof P Wignall
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Background. The diversity of modern marine animals has increased dramatically over the past 230 million years, beginning with an event called the Mesozoic Marine Revolution (MMR).
  Late Quaternary palaeohydrological and palaeoecological reconstruction in southern Africa using leaf wax lipids
  Dr A Carr, Dr A Boom
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
The sub-tropics of Africa responded sensitively to Pleistocene glacial-interglacial climatic change, as evidenced by the formation of palaeo-lakes and the activity of now relict dune systems.
