  Self-Organisation in Urban Atmospheric Aerosols?
  Dr C Pfrang, Dr Z Shi
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project will investigate the potential impact on cloud formation & urban pollution of self-organisation within aerosol particles.
  The Retrieval of Atmospheric Isoprene from Satellite INstruments (RAISIN)
  Dr J Harrison, Dr E Marais
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Isoprene is the single most important non‐methane biogenic volatile organic compound (BVOC) in the atmosphere. Emitted from terrestrial vegetation, especially in the tropical forests, its annual emissions comprise nearly half the global BVOC budget.
  Chemosensors for atmospheric peroxyl radical investigations (CAPRI)
  Dr T J Dillon, Dr A R Rickard, Dr V Chechik
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Atmospheric chemistry lies at the heart of a wide range of environmental issues of substantial societal and economic impacts.
  Sunlight exposure and cutaneous production of vitamin D in Black African/Afro-Caribbean adults
  Dr M Farrar, Prof L Rhodes, Prof A Webb
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our main source of vitamin D is through skin exposure to ultraviolet radiation (UVR) in sunlight. Vitamin D is essential for healthy bones and is associated with reduced incidence of several cancers and immune-mediated disorders.
  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.
  Next-generation model for plant ozone damage: a big step towards smaller uncertainties and more robust climate predictions. PhD in Mathematics (NERC GW4+ DTP)
  Prof N Unger
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Prof Nadine Unger, Department of Mathematics, College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences, University of Exeter.
  Reducing Uncertainty in the Response of the Earth System to Anthropogenic CO2 Emissions with Statistical Emulation of Land Surface Models. PhD in Mathematics (NERC GW4+ DTP)
  Dr O Stoner
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Dr Oliver Stoner, Department of Mathematics, College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences, University of Exeter.
  BioDAR: Using Weather Radars to Examine Biodiversity
  Dr R Neely, Dr C Hassall
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Overview and Scientific need. Weather radar scan the entirety of the UK every 5 minutes, and similar types of radar are used around the world.
  The global carbon cycle budget imbalance
  Dr A Rap, Dr D Spracklen
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will use state-of-the-art models to investigate the extent to which improved representation of biosphere-atmosphere processes reduces the global carbon cycle budget imbalance.
  A big data virtual investigation of chemistry in the upper troposphere
  Dr E Marais
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The global upper troposphere (8-12 km overhead) is a profoundly important part of the atmosphere that impacts climate, air quality and the chemical composition of the atmosphere.
  Constraining CO2 emission of cities with sensor networks
  Prof H Boesch, Dr J Vande Hey
Application Deadline: 21 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project reference. CSE Physics Boesch 2020. Reducing carbon emissions to prevent damaging climate change is one of the grand challenges of our time.
  Solar energy input from the Earth’s magnetosphere to its atmosphere (CENTA2-PHYS7-WRIG)
  Dr D Wright, Dr S Imber
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The interaction between the Sun’s and the Earth’s plasma environments is very dynamic and one of societal and commercial importance.
  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: 24 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 - 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.
  SCENARIO - Fundamental Mechanisms of Arctic Summer-time Cyclone Growth and Sea-Ice Interaction
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Prof J Methven, Dr B Harvey
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

As the climate has warmed in response to increasing greenhouse gases, the September minimum in Arctic sea-ice extent has decreased dramatically and the drift speed of summer Arctic pack ice has increased, attributed to thinner ice.
