  Regional 3D atmosphere and ocean models to quantify the impact of oceanic sources on the regional Hg budget.
  Dr N Pirrone
Application Deadline: 29 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

To improve the modelling of Hg red-ox chemistry schemes in the atmosphere and implement exchange processes between the ocean and the atmosphere to facilitate the coupling between 3D atmospheric and oceanic models; to evaluate model updates using observational data and investigate the role of oceanic emissions; to investigate the impact of emission changes on Hg cycling in Europe.
  Exploration of long-term observational data sets to examine ocean/atmosphere exchange processes of Hg.
  Dr R Ebinghaus
Application Deadline: 29 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Long-term atmospheric data sets with high time resolution are existing for a globally increasing number of sites with the earliest ones starting already in 1995.
  Traceability of Hg speciation measurements in the atmosphere.
  Dr W Corns
Application Deadline: 29 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Accurate and precise determination of Hg species in the atmosphere are required to understand the fate, transformation and global transportation of Hg.
  Terrestrial Hg pools inter-compartmental exchanges.
  Dr D Kocman
Application Deadline: 29 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Terrestrial Hg pools can act as both source and sink for atmospheric and aquatic Hg, respectively, its actual fate being driven by complex mechanisms and processes of retention, deposition and remobilization.
  High-precision terahertz gas spectroscopy
  Dr A Valavanis, Dr J Freeman, Dr P Dean
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The terahertz (THz) band of the electromagnetic spectrum lies between infrared and microwave frequencies and offers unique capabilities for gas spectroscopy.
  Computational Fluid Dynamics Modelling of Tornadoes along Quasi-Linear Convective Systems
  Research Group: Atmospheric Science
  Prof D Schultz, Dr A Revell, Dr A Skillen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The UK experiences as many tornadoes as the USA as a whole. 1.2 vs 1.3 tornadoes per 10,000 km2 per year on average (Mulder and Schultz 2015).
  Unlocking clinopyroxene records of magma and mantle oxygen fugacity
  Research Group: Geoscience
  Dr D Neave, Dr M Hartley, Dr R Jones
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Subduction recycles oceanic lithosphere formed at mid-ocean ridges back into the Earth’s convecting mantle, creating much of the deep compositional heterogeneity we now see reflected in the diversity of magmas erupted at mid-ocean ridges and ocean islands.
  PhD in Equatorial waves and Tropical cyclons
  Dr K Hodges, Dr G-Y Yang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tropical Cyclones and equatorially-trapped waves are two major components of tropical weather systems. They are responsible for not only high impact weather events (such as extreme precipitation and high speed winds) in the tropics but also weather events in the extratropics through teleconnections.
  PhD in snow microphysics
  Dr C Westbrook
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The formation and evolution of ice particles (snowflakes) in clouds is an important problem in atmospheric physics. Ice particles in clouds influence the radiation budget of the earth.
  Enhancing predictability in chaotic systems
  Dr F Ginelli, Prof A Politi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The goal of this research program – which involves theoretical analysis and numerical simulations -- is to apply fundamental results and recent developments (to which the supervisors significantly contributed) of dynamical system theory to enhance our ability to predict the future evolution of complex and chaotic dynamical systems -- such as weather and climate systems.
