  Volcanic ash, soil development and resilience in a changing climate: a case study from Montserrat (BARCLAYUENV19ARIES)
  Prof J Barclay, Dr B Reid, Dr M Cave
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
Scientific background. It is a truth universally acknowledged that a volcanic island in possession of some ash must become extremely fertile.
  Holistic assessment of the impacts of an enhanced stratospheric aerosol layer
  Dr G Mann, Prof M P Chipperfield, Dr A Rap
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Volcanic eruptions can inject vast quantities of sulphur dioxide and ash into the upper atmosphere, which cools the Earth’s surface by scattering incoming solar radiation back to space.
  Martian volcanic systems: using surface strain indicators to investigate magmatically driven stress in the Tharis region, Mars
  Dr E Bramham, Dr M Thomas, Dr S Piazolo, Dr D Paton
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
This exciting project aims to decipher the geological history of Mars utilising the ample spacecraft data collected over the last decade.
  Going round the twist: The effect of stress on magma intrusion in Scotland and the Canary Islands
  Dr J Kavanagh, Prof a Biggin, Dr D Dennis, Dr B O'Driscoll
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Introduction. Magma is transported through the crust in fractures called dykes that cut across rock layers. Dykes are important in all stages in the life of a volcano; they transport magma from depth but may stall during ascent or reach the surface to feed eruptions (see Kavanagh 2018 for a review).
  Volcanic and geochemical evolution of the Ethiopian Rift in East Africa
  Dr T Gernon, Dr D Keir, Dr R Taylor
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Programme website. http://inspire-dtp.ac.uk. Project Rationale. The Ethiopian rift exposes some of the most active and potentially hazardous but poorly understood volcanoes on Earth.
  Monitoring magma rheology-seismicity feedbacks during volcanic eruptions
  Prof Y Lavallee, Dr J Kendrick, Dr S De Angelis, Dr P Papale
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Volcanic eruptions are associated with a range of geophysical signals, including ground deformation and seismicity (Bean et al., 2014; Chouet and Matoza, 2013; Gottsmann et al., 2011).
  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.
  Novel mathematical/statistical techniques for explosive volcanic behaviour
  Prof DB Duncan, Dr S Engwell, Prof GJ Lord, Prof GJ Gibson
Applications accepted all year round
This project is a joint project between the British Geological Survey (BGS) with Sam Engwell and the School of Mathematical and Computer Sciences (MACS) at Heriot Watt University with Gabriel Lord and Gavin Gibson in the area of mathematical modelling, uncertainty and risk.

  Assessing the risk of roof collapse in response to loading from volcanic ash with relevance to Ascension Island.
  Dr M Thomas, Dr A Abellan
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
The loading that results from ash fall following volcanic eruptions can pose a significant problem to the structural integrity of buildings.
