  River water temperature: understanding river thermalscapes, driving mechanisms and ecological responses
  Prof D M Hannah, Dr S J Dugdale, Dr I A Malcolm
Applications accepted all year round
Water temperature is the ‘master’ river habitat variable, controlling physico-chemical and biological processes within river systems.
  River temperature under change: understanding potential of riparian forest and landscape properties for climate adaptation
  Prof D M Hannah, Prof S Krause
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Background. It is expected that climate change will impact UK river ecosystems (Hannah & Garner, 2015) as a consequence of extreme low-flows and high river water temperature events (Garner et al., 2017a).
  Anticipating climate change: understanding impacts on the water environment in a major UK river basin
  Dr C Bradley, Prof D M Hannah
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
River flow and water temperature are critically important for riverine physical, chemical, and biological processes. There are many potential societal benefits if we can advance our understanding of.
  New approaches to restoration of aquatic ecosystems – Integrating catchment and coastal processes to increase flood protection in tidally influenced rivers and estuaries
  Prof M Macklin, Dr M Schuerch, Dr L Mao, Dr H Moore
Application Deadline: 14 December 2018
Lincoln Centre for Water and Planetary Health – School of Geography. Location. University of Lincoln, UK. Funding. £14,553 per annum stipend, plus all tuition fees covered.
  PhD in Geographical & Earth Sciences: Catchment-scale hydro-geomorphological analysis of upland river restoration (with CASE partner SEPA)
  Dr R Williams, Dr R Hodge, Prof T Hoey
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
River restoration encompasses a wide variety of activities to improve physical, chemical and/or biological processes in rivers.
  SCENARIO - Improving river flood forecasts using machine learning and water observations from river camera images
  Dr V Ojha, Dr S L Dance
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
We aim to draw water information of from river cameras for river flood forecasting using machine learning algorithms. This project involves processing of a large volume of data (river camera images) and analogue measurements on river observation.
  Occurrence and fate of microplastics in river catchments
  Dr P Kay, Dr R Grayson
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Microplastics are tiny plastic fragments which originate from the decomposition of plastic products such as bottles and textiles or which are intentionally used in other products including cosmetics (Figure 1).
  Modelling movement of large sediment in river flows
  Prof J Hooke, Dr J Cooper
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Motivation and wider context. In high magnitude flood events very large particles, including boulders and large pieces of masonry can be carried, especially in ephemerally-flowing channels of dry climates.
  Employing artificial intelligence & machine learning to optimise flood control for 21st Century cities
  Prof O Bokhove
Applications accepted all year round
Summary Rational and unique mathematical strategies for active flood control will be developed and tested in the design of flood alleviation schemes for UK rivers, such as Yorkshire’s Aire and Calder Rivers, based on increasing flood-plain storage capacity.
  Arctic-and-alpine-river-food-web-response-to-glacier-retreat
  Prof L Brown, Dr J Carrivick
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
"Climate change poses a considerable threat to the biodiversity of high altitude ecosystems, with Arctic alpine regions across the world already beginning to show clear responses to warming (Milner et al., 2017).
