  Field-based investigation of structural and geochemical variability of gold-bearing veins in the Klondike Gold District, Yukon, Canada
  Dr T Torvela, Dr R Chapman, Dr D Banks
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Late-orogenic hydrothermal activity results in the formation of quartz and carbonate vein systems in the upper crust. It is an enigma why only certain hydrothermal pulses are associated with economic gold mineralization but others are not.
  Rocky coast geomorphology: the key to unlocking our archaeological heritage
  Dr C Earlie
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Project Background. Archaeological coastal sites play a crucial role in the cultural heritage of our country. At Tintagel, Cornwall, the geomorphological evolution of the rocky coastline is critical to interpreting the site.
  Quantifying plate boundary segmentation using earthquake patterns in space and time
  Dr D Keir, Dr T Gernon
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Programme website. http://inspire-dtp.ac.uk. Project Rationale. The majority of the planet’s earthquakes occur along the boundaries between tectonic plates.
  Structural controls on gold mineralization in the Palaeoproterozoic Mako Volcanic Belt, Senegal
  Dr J Lambert-Smith, Prof T Blenkinsop
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Project Background. Orogenic gold deposits have strong structural controls on their location and geometry at all scales.
  Squeeze and mingle: understanding the role of deformation-driven melt transport in mid-ocean ridge magma chambers (Bay of Islands ophiolite, Newfoundland, Canada)
  Prof C MacLeod, Dr C J Lissenberg
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Project Background. We now realise our conceptual view of magma chambers as large melt bodies is outmoded. that they are instead predominantly melt-poor crystal mushes1.
  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.
  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).
  Seismicity and Structure of Subducting Slabs
  Dr T Craig, Dr S Rost
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
This project aims to understand the distribution of seismicity associated with internal deformation in shallow subducting slabs. Subduction zones are well known to host the largest and most damaging earthquakes, but also a wide variety of smaller events.
  The effects of minor intrusions on host rock properties: Testing alternative models for heat transfer from magma to host
  Dr R Walker, Dr A Miles
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Magmatic intrusion into porous sediments can result in localised host rock diagenetic effects (e.g., compaction of pore space, grain cataclasis, pore infilling, redistribution of cements), which can have significant impact on subsurface fluid flow.
  Modelling high-speed railway-induced vibrations around tunnels (ground-support)
  Dr C Paraskevopoulou, Dr D Connolly, Dr P Woodward, Dr M Hildyard
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
OVERVIEW. This project will be of interest to someone looking for a multidisciplinary project involving fieldwork, laboratory analysis and numerical modelling in the broad areas of tunnelling, geotechnical and geological engineering.
