  SCENARIO - Trapped lee waves as a source of low-level drag on the atmosphere
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr MA Teixeira, Dr SL Gray
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Atmospheric models used for numerical weather prediction and climate modelling have large uncertainties in their representation of small-scale processes that contribute to uncertainties in the large-scale movement of air termed the atmospheric circulation.
  Using microfluidic technology to measure and identify atmospheric ice nucleating particles
  Prof B Murray, Dr J Shim, Dr D McCluskey
Application Deadline: 3 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Summary. Our lack of knowledge of how clouds will respond to a changing climate represent one of the largest sources of uncertainty in our projections of future climate (Tan et al., 2016).
  Ground to space laser communications through atmospheric turbulence
  Dr J Osborn, Prof G D Love
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a 3.5 year fully funded EPSRC PhD research studentship to develop concepts and technologies to advance the capabilities of free-space optical communication links.
  SCENARIO - Generating and evaluating atmospheric dispersion volcanic ash forecast ensembles
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr T Frame, Dr H Dacre
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Volcanic ash poses a significant hazard to aircraft. When ash is ingested into engines it can cause engine failure, putting the lives of aircrew and passengers at risk.
  SCENARIO - Using high-resolution climate models to predict increases in atmospheric turbulence
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Prof P Williams, Dr R Schiemann
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Atmospheric turbulence is the leading cause of in-flight injuries to air travellers and flight attendants. Tens of thousands of aircraft encounter severe turbulence annually, injuring hundreds of people and causing structural damage to planes.
  SCENARIO - Turbulence and Clouds
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr H Weller, Prof P Clark
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The representations of clouds and associated buoyant atmospheric convection are arguably the weakest aspects of weather and climate models, leading to poor forecasts and unreliable projections of the regional impacts of climate change.
  High-resolution Imaging of Near-Earth Objects and Space Debris: Real-Time Atmospheric Tomographic Signal Processing
  Dr SJ Waddell, Dr R Clare
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The research project is concerned with development and implementation of signal and image processing algorithms for predicting a distortion function when viewing an artificial satellite or large space debris objects thorough atmospheric turbulence and with the aid of a 60 cm to 100 cm optical telescope.
  SCENARIO - Atmosphere blocking dynamics: Persistence, re-intensification and interaction with other weather systems
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr O Martinez-Alvarado, Dr R Schiemann, Dr K Hodges
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Atmospheric blocking occurs when persistent high-pressure systems (or anticyclones) remain quasi-stationary over a given location or region at mid- or high-latitudes.
  SCENARIO - Investigating the climate feedbacks that will determine the fate of the Greenland ice sheet
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr R Smith, Dr J Gregory, Dr J Robson
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sea level change is one of the mostly widely recognised and potentially serious consequences of climate change due to emissions of greenhouse gases.
  New experimental constraints on atmospheric Hg red-ox reactions.
  Dr M Horvat
Application Deadline: 29 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The main objective is to understand aqueous Hg red-ox mechanisms and rates from an experimental perspective.
