  Environmental data science: a new machine learning approach to study the influence of climate change on extreme weather (NOWACKPU20SCIEC)
  Dr P Nowack, Prof M Joshi
Application Deadline: 30 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change is one of the most pressing societal and scientific challenges. Improving our understanding of climate change, in particular concerning its impacts on the country- or even city-scale, is therefore a global research priority.
  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: 24 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 - Causal discovery algorithms for the study of climate change impacts on the global water cycle
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr M.I. Hegglin, Dr V Ojha
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The water cycle plays a critical role in shaping the global environment and supporting life on Earth. Climate change is predicted to lead to changes in the water cycle, affect available water resources, and as a consequence endanger the livelihoods of societies especially in the developing world.
  Tropical weather systems and their global impacts: How will they evolve with climate change? (MATTHEWSAU20SCIO)
  Prof A J Matthews, Prof D Stevens
Application Deadline: 30 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The eastern Indian and western Pacific Oceans form the “tropical warm pool”, the largest area of warm ocean on the planet. The warm pool provides the heat and moisture for the most intense atmospheric convection (thousands of cumulonimbus clouds) on Earth.
  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: 24 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.
  Clouds in Earth’s changing climate
  Dr T Dinh
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Clouds are the largest source of uncertainty in climate models’ prediction of global climate change.
  Past intermediate and deep ocean circulation during sustained periods of warmth
  Research Group: Earth Surface Science
  Dr H Ford
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ocean is absorbing much of the heat and carbon dioxide emissions related to human caused climate change, but the long-term impacts on heat transport, carbon cycling and deep ocean circulation are poorly understood.
  Using satellite data to understand the influence of marine biogenic activity on high latitude clouds and climate (part of the SENSE Centre for Doctoral Training)
  Dr D Grosvenor, Prof K Carslaw
Application Deadline: 19 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to use satellite data to advance our understanding of how biogenic marine activity affects clouds and climate in remote high latitude regions.
  SCENARIO - A multi-scale modelling approach to bring urban climate and weather into built environment
  Dr Z Luo, Prof S Grimmond
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

With rapid global urbanization, more than 50% population now live in cities, and it will be projected to be 70% by 2050. Our living environment is exposed to overheating risk due to the combination of climate extreme, i.e., heatwave and urban heat island.
  ONE Planet DTP - The rocky road to recovery – The role of microbialites in coral reef recovery after abrupt environmental change (OP20321)
  Dr C van der Land
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Reef microbialites are excellent recorders of past sea-level and water chemistry, especially during times of environmental stress when skeletal corals (normal reef builders) are less likely to survive.
