  The sedimentology associated with subglacial drainage pathways beneath a soft bedded glacier
  Prof JK Hart
Application Deadline: 12 January 2019
One of the main drivers of glacier response to climate change is the rate at which surface water can reach the bed of the glacier.
  Spilling into confinement: submarine slope valleys as pollutant and carbon sinks
  Prof DM Hodgson, Prof J Peakall, Dr I Kane
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Highlights. An opportunity to investigate the distribution of organic carbon and pollutants in deep-marine channels, with societal and economic implications.
  The fingerprint of environmental change in the aeolian sedimentary record: a field-based study in the south-western United States
  Dr N Mountney
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
http://www.nercdtp.leeds.ac.uk/projects/index.php?id806. Desert aeolian sedimentary systems are sensitive to changes in a wide range of environmental variables, including climate, sea level, sediment supply and tectonic factors.
  Impact-cratering in Scotland: field investigation of the emplacement, sedimentology and environmental effects of a major impact-event
  Prof M J Branney, Prof S Davies
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
When asteroids collide with Earth they cause catastrophic air blasts, heat generation, earthquakes and tsunami that devastate the environment and biota.
  Where does the mud go in turbidite systems and why does it matter?
  Dr M Patacci, Prof W McCaffrey
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Summary. Opportunity to undertake fieldwork in stunning settings, such as the Maritime Alps (France) and the Ligurian coast (Italy).
  Provenance of Southern Cape Rivers: Links to Hydroclimate and Early Humans
  Prof I Hall, Dr M Andersen
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Project Background. The pattern and causes of late Pleistocene climate variability in the subtropics of south-eastern Africa is intensively debated.
  Carbon emissions from volcanism: the Karoo-Ferrar large igneous province and the Toarcian Oceanic Anoxic Event
  Dr S Greene, Dr S Jones
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Many of the most severe climate ‘events’ and carbon cycle perturbations of the Meso-Cenozoic coincide with major episodes of volcanism linked to Large Igneous Provinces (LIPs).
  Tooled up, or fluted and booted? Using sole structures to improve flow and environmental prediction, and geohazard understanding
  Prof J Peakall, Prof DM Hodgson
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Highlights. An opportunity to lead and develop the new paradigm of sole structures in deep-water environments and its use in understanding deep-marine environments.
  Proglacial landscape evolution across the Antarctic Peninsula with Holocene climate change
  Dr J Carrivick, Dr D Quincey
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
The ice sheet margin around the Antarctic Peninsula receded rapidly from its Last Glacial Maximum (LGM) position on the continental shelf edge ~ 18 ka (Davies et al., 2012) to a position towards the head of fjords, and in some cases onto land.
  Bypass to deposition: Architecture and processes in deep-water turbidite transition zones
  Dr C Stevenson, Dr I Kane, Dr R Jerrett, Dr M Poyatos More
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Deep-water turbidite systems have transition zones where flows change their behaviour from bypassing to depositional, often associated with a break in slope and a distinct change in architecture from channels into lobes (i.e.
