  Retreating Glaciers and Toxic Rivers: disentangling the history of water quality in the deglaciating Peruvian Andes - MScR in Global Environmental Challenges
  Dr J L Wadham, Dr C Williams
Application Deadline: 1 August 2019
About the Project. Peru holds >70% of the world’s tropical glaciers, all of which have undergone high rates of mass loss in the last three decades due to changing climate.
  Developing Ecologically acceptable Sediment targets for chalk rivers
  Prof D A Sear, Dr PJ Shaw, Prof A Collins, Mr T Sykes
Application Deadline: 1 June 2019
Fine sediment accumulation in the gravel beds of chalk streams is a key reason for failure under the Water Framework and Habitats Directives, impacting salmonid spawning success, and macro-invertebrate and macrophyte communities (richness and abundance).
  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: 30 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.
  Flow characteristics and sediment transport in vegetated compound channels
  Research Group: Centre For Sustainable Environments
  Prof Y Guo
Applications accepted all year round
The project is to examine the effect of vegetations on the open channel/river flow and sediment transport. It is well known that plants can reduce flow velocity, and thus sediment transport by creating additional flow resistance, leading to the increase of the river flooding.
  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.
  Integrating resilience into flood modelling - MScR in Global Environmental Challenges
  Dr M Pregnolato, Prof P Bates
Application Deadline: 1 August 2019
About the Project. Flooding is the most widely distributed of all natural hazards with floods from rivers, estuaries and the sea threatening many millions of people worldwide.
  Atmospheric Drivers of UK flood events: Current State and Future Changes
  Dr J Catto, Dr M Ekstrom
Application Deadline: 29 April 2019
This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership (GW4+ DTP).
  Shallow water equations with temperature gradients and well-balanced f-wave finite volume Riemann solvers
  Dr H Alemi Ardakani, Dr B Beare
Application Deadline: 29 April 2019
Main Information. This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership (GW4+ DTP).
  The mixing mechanisms created at the interface between Newtonian and non-Newtonian shear flows
  Dr J.E Higham, Prof C A Lin
Application Deadline: 1 June 2019
This joint experimental and computational project aims to delve into the fundamental physics relating to the mixing processes created by Newtonian and non-Newtonian shear flows.
