  The effects of minor intrusions on host rock properties: Testing alternative models for heat transfer from magma to host
  Dr R Walker, Dr A Miles
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Magmatic intrusion into porous sediments can result in localised host rock diagenetic effects (e.g., compaction of pore space, grain cataclasis, pore infilling, redistribution of cements), which can have significant impact on subsurface fluid flow.
  Assessing the integrity of carbon capture and storage (CCS) reservoirs by using a combined experimental and modelling approach
  Dr I Falcon Suarez, Dr A Lichtschlag, Dr J Matter, Dr A Best
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Project Rationale. CO2 Capture and Storage (CCS) is a greenhouse gas mitigation technology, capable of ameliorating the current rate of global warming.
  Fault systems and fluid-rock interaction in the Samail peridotite: implications for carbon capture in mantle rocks.
  Dr E Mariani, Prof J Wheeler, Prof L Crispini, Prof D Teagle
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
The Samail peridotite in the Oman Mountains is namely one of the largest peridotite bodies exposed on land and it was emplaced by obduction of oceanic lithosphere between 95 and 70 Ma (e.g Searle et al.
  Comprehensive investigation of the chemical flooding EOR in natural rocks
  Dr J Vinogradov, Dr L Akanji
Applications accepted all year round
Chemical flooding is a promising method of EOR in both carbonate and sandstone reservoirs. It is widely accepted that presence of chemicals in rock pore space results in alteration of interfacial tension between brine and hydrocarbons and rock wettability alteration.
  What can hydrocarbon fingerprints tell us about fracking in organic-rich shales?
  Prof P S Monks, Prof S Davies
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
The accurate estimation of the hydrocarbon content of potential source rocks is increasingly important as unconventional sources of hydrocarbons become economically viable and we look manage of our environment responsibly as we try to meet our energy needs.
  Is Enhanced Rock Weathering an effective climate change mitigation strategy?
  Prof R James, Dr G Andrews, Dr C Pearce
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Programme website. Project Rationale. Anthropogenic inputs of carbon dioxide (CO2) to the atmosphere are the primary cause of global warming.
  Resolving the frequency of mass movement events with new luminescence dating techniques
  Dr R Smedley, Dr E Mariani, Dr S Dunning, Dr J-P Buylaert
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Introduction. Luminescence dating is a geochronological technique important for reconstructing past environments on Earth over the last million years (see Smedley, 2018 for details).
  Earthquake-induced instabilities in orogenic and volcanic environments
  Prof Y Lavallee, Dr J Kendrick, Ms L.N Schaefer
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Landslides and sector collapses are frequent consequences of tectonic earthquakes (Keefer, 1984, 2002), and represent an important secondary hazard, costing the economy ~$2 billion annually in damage and causing thousands of fatalities in the last century.
  Going round the twist: The effect of stress on magma intrusion in Scotland and the Canary Islands
  Dr J Kavanagh, Prof a Biggin, Dr D Dennis, Dr B O'Driscoll
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Introduction. Magma is transported through the crust in fractures called dykes that cut across rock layers. Dykes are important in all stages in the life of a volcano; they transport magma from depth but may stall during ascent or reach the surface to feed eruptions (see Kavanagh 2018 for a review).
  Surface complexation modelling of the zeta potential at oil-brine and brine- rock interfaces: the application to wettability characterisation and EOR via controlled salinity waterflooding
  Dr J Vinogradov, Dr D Vega-Maza
Applications accepted all year round
Controlled salinity waterflooding is a promising method of EOR in both carbonate and sandstone reservoirs. The incremental oil recovery by the controlled salinity waterflooding yields up to 40% of oil originally in place to be recovered in addition to initial primary waterflooding.
