  Modelling soil erosion and soil carbon dynamics in agricultural systems
  Dr M Galdos, Prof P Chapman
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Besides supporting food, feed, fuel and fibre production, soils provide ecosystems services such as storing carbon, filtering water and maintaining biodiversity.
  Arctic carbon under threat from climate extremes: how do extreme climatic events affect soil carbon and microbial communities?
  Dr G Phoenix, Dr T Helgason, Dr J Bjerke
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
Extreme climatic events can have far greater impacts on ecosystems than gradual climate change. This is particularly apparent in the Arctic, where widespread damage from extreme events is causing large-scale die-back to tundra ecosystems and driving the phenomena known as “Arctic Browning”.
  Source to Sea: Soil carbon transport from forested environments to coastal waters (Ref IAP2-18-72)
  Dr C Schroeder, Dr W Austin, Dr C Smeaton, Dr N Shah
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Scotland is a carbon (C) nation with significant stores held in both terrestrial and marine environments. Scotland’s peatlands, for example, hold Europe’s largest organic carbon (OC) reserves, and recent research has shown that Scotland’s sea lochs are even more effective carbon stores [1,2].
  SCENARIO: Engineering soil microbial carbon metabolism for multiple environmental benefits
  Dr E J Shaw, Dr R Griffiths, Dr M Redmile-Gordon, Dr E Armenise
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Soils are essential to human well-being because they perform multiple functions that underpin the provision of ecosystem services that sustain life and regulate climate.
  Leaf chemistry response to elevated CO2: decomposition and nutrient cycle impacts
  Dr R Bartlett, Dr L Batty
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
The Birmingham Institute of Forest Research Free Air Carbon Enrichment Facility (BIFoR FACE) is an outdoor experiment studying the impact of elevated carbon dioxide (eCO2) on an established deciduous forest ecosystem through several multi-disciplinary research projects.
  Soil microbes to mitigate climate change
  Dr J Whitaker, Prof N Ostle
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
Why is this project important?. Human populations are expected to increase by 50% to 9 billion by 2050 as climate change continues – together these changes will place unprecedented pressure on the Earth’s finite and fragile natural resources.
  Creating “Climate-smart” soils to optimize carbon sequestration through land management
  Dr J Subke, Dr M Garnett, Dr M Perks, Prof D Johnson
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Background. The Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5 °C by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC, 2018) recently outlined the clear case for reducing net CO2 emissions globally.
  Agroforestry, soil health and delivery of public goods
  Prof P Chapman, Prof J Holden
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Agroforestry is the practice of deliberately growing trees in combination with arable crops and/or pasture on the same piece of land.
  Siberian summers: detecting the leakage of old carbon from permafrost catchments
  Dr J Dean, Prof R Chiverell
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Arctic permafrost soils are large carbon stores capable of driving a positive climate feedback loop as global temperatures rise (Dean et al., 2018a).
  Structure and function of soil microbial communities in contrasting biomes at The Eden Project
  Dr K. Field, Prof P E Urwin, Dr T Helgason
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
"The Eden Project is a unique global garden situated in a reclaimed Kaolinite quarry approximately 3 miles from St Austell, Cornwall.
