  Geophysical and stratigraphical evidence for sediment dynamics and catchment landscape evolution in UK lake basins
  Prof R Chiverell, Prof a Biggin, Dr R Smedley
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Understanding the evolution of landscapes is important. They record the complex interplay of natural processes, extreme events (magnitude and frequency), and with the intensification of land use, anthropogenic influences.
  Will salt marsh survive sea level rise? An integrated numerical model and field investigation
  Dr N Leonardi, Dr R Smedley
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Salt marshes are delicate ecosystems located at the boundary between sea and land and play a number of crucially important socio-economic roles.
  Monitoring, forecasting and remediating sediment in estuary zones
  Dr C Walsh
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This project is part of the ONE Planet DTP. Find out more here. https://research.ncl.ac.uk/one-planet/. Rivers have always, and will continue to be important for a range of economic, social and environmental reasons.
  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.
  Can periodic sediment input signals make it through to the sedimentary archive?
  Dr R Duller, Prof P Burgess, Dr R Jerrett, Dr K Straub
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Introduction. “How can we accurately decode a sedimentary succession for periodic input sediment supply signals if we have gaps in the succession and signals are shredded?” A common assumption in stratigraphic analysis is the stratigraphic record presents us with an unbiased record of past landscapes & climate.
  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.
  Working with natural processes to reduce floods, sediment and phosphorus losses from farmed landscapes
  Dr M Perks
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This project is part of the ONE Planet DTP. Find out more here. https://research.ncl.ac.uk/one-planet/.
  Sediment flux in and around the Sør Rondans Mountains in East Antarctica (RDF19/EE/GES/WINTER)
  Dr K Winter
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Sediments in glacial systems can alter frictional stress at the glacier bed, modify ice flow speeds and change ice flow direction through long-term erosive processes.
  Novel tools for quantifying and managing sediment and nutrient loss from agricultural land
  Dr D Mullan, Dr J Geris
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
"The protection of surface waters is central to much of the 21st century environmental legislation within the EU, including the Water Framework Directive (WFD) and Nitrates Directive.
