  Glacier recession, glacial sediment export and the morphodynamics of proglacial forefields
  Prof S Lane
Application Deadline: 24 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Swiss National Science Foundation has funded a new project at the University of Lausanne that will address the behaviour of the areas that form in front of glaciers (proglacial forcefields) as glaciers retreat.
  The Evolution of Fluvial Sediment Delivery from Asia’s Rivers to the Oceans: Trends and Causes
  Dr J Leyland, Prof SE Darby
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. This project aims to quantify and explain variations (1985-2020) in the discharge of fluvial sediment to the oceans, with a focus on the continent of Asia.
  Deconstructing the Falkland sediment drift – Implications for Patagonian Ice Sheet and Antarctic Circumpolar Current evolution during the Plio-Pleistocene. PhD in Geology (NERC GW4 + DTP)
  Dr I Bailey
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Dr. Ian Bailey, Camborne School of Mines, College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences, University of Exeter.
  Microplastic-sediment interactions (MiPSi)
  Research Group: Earth Surface Science
  Dr K Spencer, Prof G Wharton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The accelerating global release of microplastics (mP) into the aquatic environment seems inevitable, with long-term consequences for water quality and biodiversity.
  Quantification of the impact of changing vegetation on hillslope sediment transport
  Research Group: Earth Surface Science
  Dr S Grieve, Dr E Lines
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hillslope sediment transport exists on a continuum from the gradual downslope motion of particles, termed soil creep, to catastrophic shallow landslides and debris flows.
  Impact of Sediment Transport and Vegetation to the Reservoir Hydrodynamics within Fluvial Environment
  Research Group: Centre For Sustainable Environments
  Prof F Hu, Dr J Pu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Reservoirs and dams are popular control mechanisms for different water resources around the world. However, lately, there have been increasing incidences of reservoir failure linked to sediment transport and vegetation within its environment, that have caused massive financial and social impacts.
  Can beaver-modified ecosystems mitigate water quality deterioration caused by both point and diffuse source pollution? PhD in Geography (NERC FRESH)
  Dr R Brazier
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Professor Richard Brazier, Department of Geography, University of Exeter. Additional supervisors. Dr Gemma Coxon, School of Geographical Sciences, University of Bristol.
  Transport of radioactive waste along the Sellafield shoreline: climate change impact and mitigation strategies through nature based solutions
  Dr N Leonardi, Prof A Plater
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This proposal aims to build on previous collaboration across the Department of Geography and Planning and NNL on the ARCoES project.
  SEESALT: Novel ways to ’SEE’ coastal ’SALT’ marshes using low-cost drones and sensors
  Dr D Green, Dr D Mauquoy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Saltmarshes are found extensively along low wave energy coastlines resulting from fine sediment accumulation and vegetation establishment.
  Quantifying Globally Significant Carbon Sequestration in Large River Systems. PhD in Geography (NERC GW4+ DTP)
