  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.
  Ice streams: present-to-palaeo - QUADRAT
  Prof B Rea, Dr A Newton
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Ice streams are the arteries which drain large quantities of ice from the interior of ice sheets to the ice margin. From both palaeo and present they are known to display dynamical behaviour in relation to ice flow velocity.
  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).
  Development and Evolution of the West Greenland Passive Continental Margin
  Research Group: Institute of Petroleum Engineering
  Prof J Underhill, Dr R Jamieson
Application Deadline: 1 February 2019
Passive continental margins record the rifting, breakup and thermal subsidence of divergent margins and therefore their study is a key components in developing our understanding of large scale tectonic processes.
  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.

  Earthquake-induced instabilities in orogenic and volcanic environments
  Prof Y Lavallee, Dr J Kendrick, Ms L.N Schaefer
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Landslides and sector collapses are frequent consequences of tectonic earthquakes (Keefer, 1984, 2002), and represent an important secondary hazard, costing the economy ~$2 billion annually in damage and causing thousands of fatalities in the last century.
  Tectonomagmatic formation of Earth’s first continents, the Slaufrudalur Pluton, SE Iceland
  Dr A R Hastie, Dr C T Stevenson
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Earth is the only planet in our solar system that has distinctive oceanic and continental crust. Importantly, the growth of Earth’s first stable and preserved continental crust about 4 billion years ago modified the early mantle, hydrosphere and atmosphere and enabled terrestrial life to evolve.
  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).
