  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.
  Hydrologic versus hydraulic predictors of ecological responses to changing flow regimes: an evaluation of traditional versus emerging methods
  Dr S Sharifi, Dr A Webb
Application Deadline: 7 April 2019
The world’s rivers are undergoing unprecedented changes in their flow regimes. These changes can be negative impacts, such as those wrought through flow abstraction for irrigation, flow regime changes for hydropower or flood control, or long-term reductions in runoff caused by climate change (Dudgeon et al.
  Water Engineering: Complex Natural River Flow Modelling and Flood Analysis
  Dr P Pimenidou, Dr J Pu
Applications accepted all year round
The study on flooding, and identifying suitable ways to mitigate floods, have become a top priority for Government and the Environmental Agency, due to increasing flood frequency and intensity around the UK.
  Computational Efficiency and Better Understanding of River Deltas Using Lattice Botlzmann Method
  Dr N Leonardi
Application Deadline: 1 April 2019
River deltas are home to half a billion of people, are among the most productive ecosystem on earth, and constitute the main food source for many nations.
  A technologically-led approach to river restoration using UAVs (drones)
  Mr N Entwistle
Applications accepted all year round
Fluvial systems offer a challenging and varied environment for topographic survey, displaying a rapidly varying morphology, vegetation assemblage and degree of submergence.
  The impact of changes in river flow regime on the behaviour and population ecology of dippers, a riparian bird and bioindicator
  Dr S Sharp, Dr D Whyatt
Application Deadline: 29 March 2019
Freshwater ecosystems provide crucial ecosystem services and support exceptional biodiversity. However, rivers are highly influenced by environmental change and are among the most threatened of all ecosystems.
  Biology of the invasive Chinese mitten crab in the river Thames
  Prof D Morritt
Applications accepted all year round
The Chinese mitten crab, Eriocheir sinensis, is an invasive brachyuran crab species (one of the top 100 most invasive species) that is now well established in the River Thames and tributaries.
  Impacts of Glacier Retreat in the Peruvian Andes on River Water Quality - MScR in Global Environmental Challenges
  Dr J L Wadham, Dr C Yates
Application Deadline: 1 August 2019
About the Project. Peruvian glaciers, like most tropical glaciers, have witnessed high rates of mass loss over the last 30 years due to warming temperatures and changing precipitation.
  The earliest Lower Palaeolithic of the Middle Thames: Re-assessing the chronology and distribution of the high-level ancient river terraces
  Dr R Hosfield, Dr S Black
Applications accepted all year round
The majority of Britain’s earliest Palaeolithic sites are associated with estuaries and/or the lower reaches of major rivers. This distribution of sites suggests that the earliest colonisers may have been restricted to coastal habitats, with their milder micro-climates and distinctive resources.
  Analysis, occurrence, fate and effects of flubendazole in moorland river catchments
  Dr P Kay
Application Deadline: 29 March 2019
Moorland areas are very important worldwide and are found, for example, in the British Isles, Russia, Canada, Scandinavia, New Zealand, Tasmania, Japan and South America (Holden et al., 2007).
