  Peatland hydrology: a global comparison using the PeatDataHub monitoring network
  Prof J Holden, Dr P Morris, Dr G Lopez-Gonzalez
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
This PhD project seeks to use the new PeatDataHub platform (https://peatdatahub.net/) to compile data from sites around the world in order to enable the successful student to interrogate datasets on water table and other hydrological properties to understand more about global peatland water-table dynamics.
  Enhancing peatland resilience to wildfire through peatland habitat restoration; building the evidence base
  Dr N Kettridge
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
The recent Saddleworth Moor fire burned over 1000 hectares of UK upland, instigated a major national incident, led to the evacuation of 100 homes and placed considerable strain on UK emergency services, with even the army activated to support fire suppression.
  (MERI) Microbial controls on carbon loss from eroding and restored UK blanket peatland
  Research Group: Molecular Environmental Sciences
  Dr C Robinson, Prof J Lloyd, Prof M G Evans
Application Deadline: 6 February 2019
CASE STUDENTSHIP with Moors for the Future Partnership. The blanket peatlands of the UK are important terrestrial carbon stores but are uniquely eroded because of impacts of industrial pollution, overgrazing, wildfire and climate change (Evans and Warburton, 2011 and Figure 1).
  SCENARIO: Analysis of peatland carbon dynamics using combined optical and microwave satellite data
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Prof K Morrison, Dr TL Quaife
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Peatlands are a key component of the terrestrial carbon cycle and sequester large amounts of carbon from the atmosphere. Monitoring their health and state is therefore key to understanding carbon dynamics and the important role peatlands play in the climate, and in climate change.
  Long-Term Impacts of Peatland Restoration on Hydrological Function
  Dr R Artz, Dr M Coyle, Prof J Holden
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Many UK blanket peatlands were drained during the second half of the 20th century using open cut ditches. However, these are now being blocked as part of peatland restoration initiatives.
  Carbon Down the Drain: Controls on DOC production and transport in oil palm plantations and forests on tropical peatland
  Prof S Page, Dr M Whelan
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Tropical peatlands are dense, long-term stores of carbon (C) that are vital components of global C soil-atmosphere exchange processes.
  Mechanical modelling of the stability of Earth’s peatland carbon reservoirs
  Dr M Hubbard, Dr D Brown, Dr D Large, Dr B Muljadi
Applications accepted all year round
School of Mathematical Sciences - 4-year PhD Scholarship. Mechanical modelling of the stability of Earth’s peatland carbon reservoirs.
  Assessing Drought Resilience of Restored Peatlands Using Combined Optical and Microwave Satellite Data
  Dr A Gimona, Dr R Artz, Dr TL Quaife, Prof K Morrison
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Background. Peatlands are a key component of the terrestrial carbon cycle. They sequester large amounts of carbon from the atmosphere.
  How are our peatlands eroding? Using fine scale ‘roughness signatures’ to quantify soil and carbon losses via different erosion mechanisms
  Dr M Smith, Prof A Baird, Prof J Warburton
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
"Peatlands form an important terrestrial carbon store, comprising 30-50% of all carbon stored in soils worldwide (Gorham, 1991) much of which is at risk of degradation through climate change (Gallego-Sala and Prentice, 2013), increasing its susceptibility to erosion.
