  PhD in Geographical & Earth Sciences: Improved GPS time series analysis for geoscience applications including sea-level, GIA, tectonics, hydrology & volcanology
  Dr E Petrie, Prof P Clarke, Dr S Ray
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Using Global Positioning System (GPS) data to measure the motion of bedrock is highly useful in many areas of geoscience. calibrating tide gauges for land motion.
  Geodetic evidence for lateral magmatic connections at Chilean volcanoes
  Dr S Ebmeier, Dr D Ferguson, Prof A Hooper
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Knowing the location, volume and mobility of eruptible magma stored in the crust is critical for forecasting volcanic eruptions. Volcanic hazards threaten human life, health and livelihoods, so improvements to the way we interpret monitoring datasets, including deformation, have potential for real world impacts.
  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.
  The evolution of volcanism following sector collapse
  Dr S Watt, Prof T J Reston
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Sector collapses are among the largest volume events to affect volcanic systems, potentially involving the rapid displacement of tens of cubic kilometres of rock.
  Quantifying Uncertainties Associated with Source Influences on particle-laden buoyant PLUMES (QUASI-PLUMES)
  Dr A Cuthbertson, Dr YS Park
Application Deadline: 3 February 2019
Understanding the environmental impacts of wastewater discharges into oceans, dredged material disposal in coastal marine waters and atmospheric emissions from industrial stacks and volcanoes, requires detailed knowledge of how the multiphase (fluid + particulate) behaviour of buoyant jets and plumes is affected by the source conditions (e.g.
  How does magma move through sill-complexes?
  Dr C Magee, Dr D Paton
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Understanding how magma intrusion controls the location of volcanoes and pre-eruption warning signals is critical to hazard assessment.
  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.
  The dynamics of magma storage and ascent beneath an active arc volcano (Villarrica, Chile)
  Dr D Ferguson, Dr D Morgan, Dr S Ebmeier
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Volcanic arcs, formed along convergent plate margins, produce most of Earth’s subaerial volcanic activity and are responsible for the largest and most devastating historical eruptions.
  Feeling hot, hot, hot! Harnessing energy from magma in New Zealand
  Dr J Kavanagh, Dr B Edwards, Dr G Kilgour
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Climate change, rising global populations, increasing energy consumption, and depletion of oil and gas reservoirs mean the exploitation of renewable energy resources, such as geothermal energy, is becoming increasingly important.
  (MERI) Magama chambers or mush?
  Research Group: Geoscience
  Dr J Mecklenburgh, Prof E Rutter, Dr B O'Driscoll, Prof M Burton
Application Deadline: 6 February 2019
The classical view of large volume magma chambers containing close to 100% melt below volcanoes has been the paradigm for over a century.
