  The Stratigraphy and Emplacement of the Antrim Lavas (SEAL)
  Dr C T Stevenson, Dr S Watt
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Basaltic traps and related intrusions, globally, host a variety of resources including aggregates (Mitchel, 2015), minerals (Lusty, 2017), geothermal (Campbell et al., 2016), and groundwater (Seneger et al., 2015; Babar and Muley, 2018).
  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.
  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.
  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.
  NERC Panorama Doctoral Training Partnership - The effect of extreme climatic change on insect-plant interactions during the Jurassic
  Dr B Caswell
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
The increases in atmospheric concentrations of CO2 (pCO2), that are associated with climate change, cause decreases in the nutritional value of plants to the herbivorous insects that feed upon them.
  Tracing the geological signature of a human-induced transformation of the biosphere in Indonesia
  Prof M Williams, Dr J A Zalasiewicz
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
The human impact on the biosphere is profound and has been expressed in terms of species introductions, extirpations and extinctions, command of production, and the ability to modify species and whole ecosystems for human use.
  Pushing back the frontiers of luminescence dating – IAPETUS DTP PhD Studentship (Durham University and Glasgow University)
  Prof I Bailiff
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
University of Durham and the University of Glasgow. Luminescence - especially optically stimulated luminescence - dating is an established and important tool for dating events during the Late Pleistocene and latter part of the Middle Pleistocene.
  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).
  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.
  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.
