  EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Mathematics of Planet Earth
We are seeking excellent candidates for 16 fully funded PhD positions, as part of the forth cohort of the newly established EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in the Mathematics of Planet Earth (MPE), jointly run by Imperial College London and the University of Reading.
  Improved time-stepping schemes in weather and climate models
  Prof P Williams, Dr H Weller
Applications accepted all year round
"The task of predicting weather and climate may be reduced to the following iterative procedure. First, given the state of the system at any time (the input), use the governing equations to compute the state at a slightly later time (the output).
  SCENARIO :Data synthesis and integration for improved climate impact assessment, modelling and policy
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr R Cornforth, Dr E Tarnavsky
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Climate change is already demonstrated in changes in the frequency and severity of extreme weather events.
  SCENARIO: Analysis of peatland carbon dynamics using combined optical and microwave satellite data
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Prof K Morrison, Dr TL Quaife
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Peatlands are a key component of the terrestrial carbon cycle and sequester large amounts of carbon from the atmosphere. Monitoring their health and state is therefore key to understanding carbon dynamics and the important role peatlands play in the climate, and in climate change.
  SCENARIO: Bias correction in Data Assimilation
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr A Fowler, Dr A S Lawless
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Data assimilation, the process of initializing a computer model forecast using the latest observational data, has proven fundamental to the accuracy of modern day weather forecasting.
  SCENARIO: Climate Response to Short-lived Pollutants (CReSP)
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Prof W Collins, Prof K Shine, Dr N Bellouin
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
This project is to investigate the impacts of air pollutants on climate. As well as causing health problems, air pollutants such as ozone, soot and sulphuric acid also affect climate by changing the Earth’s radiation balance.
  SCENARIO: Electric dust storms: environmental challenges and impacts
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Prof G Harrison, Dr C Ryder, Dr K.A. Nicoll
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Mineral dust aerosol is a major component of the Earth-Atmosphere system, comprising 70% of the global aerosol mass burden.
  SCENARIO: Evaluating and improving high-resolution high-impact weather numerical weather forecasts
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr RS Plant, Dr T Stein
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Over the past decade, high-resolution numerical weather forecasting has become practical using so-called “convection-permitting” models for lead times of 1-24 hours.
  SCENARIO: Flow processes and turbulent exchange in urban canopies
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr J Barlow, Dr O Coceal
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Most of the world’s population now experiences an urban version of weather extremes and climate change. Accurate forecasting of weather and air quality in cities relies on correctly representing the physics of turbulent exchange between the surface and the overlying atmosphere.
  SCENARIO: Improving our understanding of ice cloud microphysics using new aircraft and multi-wavelength radar measurements
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr C Westbrook, Dr T Stein, Dr S Mason
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Ice particles in clouds play an important role for both weather and climate prediction. Half of all precipitation globally is initiated through the formation of ice, while the radiative impact of ice clouds is very important because of their widespread coverage.
