  Investigation of alternative generation technologies for wave energy
  Mr H Jeffrey
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The International Energy Agency’s 2012 Energy Technology Perspectives forecasts up to 337GW of marine energy capacity could be deployed across the world, with about 70% from wave energy, by 2050.
  Active Control of Wave Energy Converters
  Dr A Lecchini-Visintini, Prof M Turner
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Wave energy conversion is a promising and sustainable way of generating both power and potable water. The waters around the UK are particularly energetic and many are ideal locations for wave energy devices A great deal of research has been invested over the last several decades into wave energy conversion devices.
  Mathematical modelling of the distensible tube wave energy converter
  Dr W Smith
Applications accepted all year round
The distensible tube wave energy converter (WEC) is a recognized representative of the next strand of marine energy devices, it being different from current prototypes in its potential to achieve a substantial reduction in the cost of energy.
  Dynamics of a wave propelled surface vessel
  Dr N Townsend, Dr M Tan
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Project Rationale. This project aims to establish the fundamental principles of a novel mechanism to convert ocean wave energy directly into propulsion for ASVs.
  Ultra-low frequency waves in the terrestrial magnetosphere
  Research Group: Astronomy and Space Science
  Prof TK Yeoman, Dr D Wright
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) waves are a ubiquitous phenomenon in astrophysical plasmas. Within the Terrestrial space environment, such waves manifest themselves as Ultra low frequency (ULF) waves with periods ranging from tens to thousands of seconds.
  What controls the internal wave field and turbulent mixing over Southern Ocean undersea topography?
  Dr A Brearley, Prof A Naveira-Garabato, Dr D Smeed
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Project Rationale. Throughout the global ocean, regions of rough bottom topography are important locations of water mass mixing and transformation.
  Deep, dark and dynamic: Converted-wave seismology to explore the physical properties of Antarctic glacier ice
  Dr A Booth, Dr R Clark
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Could you be converted to glacier seismology?! Join our group at Leeds’ School of Earth and Environment, collaborating with the British Antarctic Survey, to apply seismic methods - from field survey through to interpretation - to some of the most pressing issues in glaciology today! Full project description here.
  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.
  Environmental assessment of offshore wind energy devices
  Research Group: Centre For Sustainable Environments
  Prof Y Guo
Applications accepted all year round
The installation of Offshore Wind Energy Device (OWED) will inevitably alter the flow patterns around the devices. This may enhance the sediment transport and scour around the foundation, thus leading to the instability of offshore wind energy device foundation, and further resultant failure of the whole system.
  The transfer of solar wind energy into the upper atmosphere through magnetospheric waves
  Research Group: Astronomy and Space Science
  Dr D Wright, Prof TK Yeoman
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The interaction between the Sun’s and the Earth’s plasma environments is very dynamic and one of societal and commercial importance.
