  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.
  Integrating local shoreface changes and regional hydrographic data to establish a regional sediment budget
  Dr J Leyland, Dr H Kassem, Prof I Townend, Dr C Thompson
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Programme website. http://inspire-dtp.ac.uk. Project Rationale. Mixed, shingle barrier beaches have high natural capital value due to their importance for flood defence amongst other roles.
  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.
  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.
  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.
  Quantification of sediment organic matter fractions at Crose Mere, Shropshire FTNIRS and FTIRS
  Dr J Boyle, Prof R Chiverell
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Palaeolimnological assessment of recent environmental change, building quantitative records of past states that pre-date instrumental measurements, has dramatically strengthened our understanding of current ecosystem functioning, enabling political and management decisions by providing firm evidence of both the existence of change, and of its causes.
  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.
