  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.
  PhD/Graduate Teaching Assistants (GTAs) – Geography
A fantastic opportunity to study for a fully funded doctorate whilst gaining valuable teaching experience. The Faculty of Arts and Sciences is home to a large and diverse group of disciplines with a track record of excellence in research, much of which crosses traditional disciplinary boundaries.
  Controls on the causes, dynamics and impacts of the catastrophic mass flows (aluviónes), northern Patagonia, Chile.
  Dr A Russell
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/. Background. Glacier recession in mountainous regions is known to both reduce slope stability and also create potentially unstable proglacial lakes.
  Controls on the hydro-geomorphological impact of the 2017 El Niño Costero floods, northern Peru.
  Dr A Russell

  Comparing Biodiversity and Ecosystem Functions of Restored and Natural Mangrove Forests in Indonesia using Palynology and plant DNA metabarcoding (Ref: OP19_23)
  Prof U Salzmann
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Mangrove forests are uniquely valuable tropical coastal wetlands in the transition zone be- tween land and sea that suffer significant destruction worldwide.
  Sedimentary Records of the Evolution of the Melville Bugt Ice Stream
  Dr A Newton, Prof B Rea
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
In response to ongoing climate forcing the Greenland Ice Sheet (GrIS) has experienced changes in extent and mass balance, with implications for sea level and oceanography of the North Atlantic.
  YODASLAMS: YOunger DryAs Stadial Landform DynAMicS in Ireland
  Dr R Flood, Dr MS Spagnolo
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
"Rapid climatic changes, as occurred during the Late Glacial, can serve as an analogue for the present. During the Younger Dryas Stadial (Greenland Stadial‐1.
  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).
  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.
  (MERI) Can stratigraphic sequences at all scales be explained by autogenic processes?Applying theory to a real world deltaic succession from the Pyrenean Foreland, Spain.
  Research Group: Geoscience
  Dr R Jerrett, Dr R Duller
Application Deadline: 6 February 2019
In sequence stratigraphy, the interpretation of organisation or patterns in stratigraphic successions relies heavily on the assumption that allogenic mechanisms (e.g.
