  SCENARIO: The role of post-tropical cyclones for European extreme weather
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr R Schiemann, Dr K Hodges, Dr L Shaffrey, Dr A Baker
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
North Atlantic tropical cyclones typically form at low latitudes off the African coast, then track west and northwestward, and some of them make landfall over Central and North America.
  Understanding how climate change affects the tropical rain belt over Africa and its variability
  Dr J Marsham, Dr D Parker
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
SUMMARY. The tropics cover 40% of Earth’s area, include 36% of its land, and are home to 40% of its people. Africa is the continent with the largest tropical land mass, and its rapidly growing population includes many of the people who are most vulnerable to climate change.
  The ecology of lightning strikes: How many trees in tropical forests are killed by lightning?
  Dr T Hill, Dr L Rowland, Dr TR Feldpausch
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Location. University of Exeter, Streatham Campus, Exeter EX4 4QJ. Main Information. This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership (GW4+ DTP).
  Quantifying climate-driven range shifts in tropical species – a global analysis
  Prof J K Hill, Dr C Beale
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
Quantifying climate-driven range shifts in tropical species – a global analysis. Tropical rainforest species are shifting their ranges to track climate, although.
  Weathering of volcanic products in the tropical environment of the Panama Canal area
  Dr D Buchs, Dr P Renforth
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Project Background. Weathering of volcanic products in the tropical climate is key to the formation of soils that constitute a critical zone between the lithosphere and biosphere, are associated with significant geotechnical challenges and could possibly play a significant role in the global carbon budget.
  School of Geographical and Earth Sciences - Understanding ecohydrological dynamics in intact tropical peatlands: a biogeochemical approach
  Prof J Toney, Dr K.H. Roucoux
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
The Biomarkers for Environmental and Climate Science (BECS) research group at the University of Glasgow is looking to recruit an excellent PhD student to assess carbon storage and ecosystem dynamics through biomarker approaches in recently discovered tropical peatlands of northern Peru.
  Constraining the carbon balance of intact tropical forest landscapes
  Dr T Baker, Dr D Galbraith, Prof O Phillips
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Intact tropical forests play a key role in determining the rate of climate change, as they can act as either a significant sink, or potentially source, of carbon.
  Deadly Climate Hazards Combined: Tropical Cyclones and Deadly Heat
  Dr T Matthews, Dr J Hillier
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Loughborough University is a top-ten rated university in England for research intensity (REF2014). In choosing Loughborough for your research, you’ll work alongside academics who are leaders in their field.
  Landscape composition and carbon-biodiversity co-benefits in the Tropical Andes
  Dr D Edwards, Prof R Freckleton
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
Deforestation is a key driver of global climate change and the biodiversity extinction crisis. However, the financial resources available to tackle both issues are limited, indicating an urgent need to identify actions that address them concurrently.
  Acoustic monitoring of human exploitation in tropical forests
  Dr J.L. Snaddon, Prof C P Doncaster
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Project Rationale. Tropical forests contain over half of global terrestrial biodiversity, and they provide vital ecosystem services at local, regional and global scales.
