Showing 1 to 10 of 17
  Total Atmospheric Emissions from the Biosphere
  Dr W J Bloss, Dr L Kramer
Applications accepted all year round
The dominant source of hydrocarbons to the atmosphere is vegetation – biogenic volatile organic compounds or BVOCs. In the atmosphere, BVOCs undergo chemical processing, leading to the formation of secondary pollutants such as ozone and organic aerosol particles, affecting human and environmental health and climate.
  The Stratigraphy and Emplacement of the Antrim Lavas (SEAL)
  Dr C T Stevenson, Dr S Watt
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Basaltic traps and related intrusions, globally, host a variety of resources including aggregates (Mitchel, 2015), minerals (Lusty, 2017), geothermal (Campbell et al., 2016), and groundwater (Seneger et al., 2015; Babar and Muley, 2018).
  Wood burning in the West Midlands: impact on air quality and health
  Dr Z Shi, Prof R Harrison, Dr X Cai
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
World Health Organization (WHO) estimated that air pollution is associated with 7 million premature deaths per year globally. In the UK, air pollution causes 40,000 premature deaths (Royal College of Physicians, 2016) and costs the economy £20 bn per year.
  Tree mortality and drought: leveraging the power of big data
  Dr T Pugh, Dr J P Sadler, Dr T Matthews
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Why do trees die? How do the rates and drivers of tree mortality vary from the tropical rainforest to the boreal? How do these mortality rates affect forest structure? These questions are crucial in order to understand large-scale forest dynamics.
  Future Climate: Future Pollen and Spores
  Dr F Pope
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Globally, atmospheric CO2 concentrations are rising because of anthropogenic activity. They will continue to rise in the coming century.
  Self-Organisation of Cooking Emissions in Urban Aerosols?
  Dr C Pfrang, Dr Z Shi
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
The project will investigate the potential impact on cloud formation & urban pollution of self-organisation within aerosol particles.
  How will forested watersheds store, mix and release water in a Greenhouse World? Effects of elevated CO2 on tree water source apportionment
  Dr J McDonnell, Prof D M Hannah, Prof S Krause
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
This NERC CENTA PhD studentship proposal is an ambitious research program to advance the understanding of how forested headwater catchments store, mix and release water.
  Unravelling the process of subduction initiation: style, mechanism, and timing
  Dr M Maffione, Dr C T Stevenson
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Subduction is a key step in the solid Earth cycle that allows tectonic plates to move.
  The fate of microplastics accumulating at groundwater-surface water interfaces
  Prof S Krause, Dr I Lynch, Prof G Sambrook Smith
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
The transport, fate and behaviour of MPs have been studied predominantly in marine ecosystems, with severe knowledge gaps remaining in freshwater and terrestrial ecosystems (Klein et al., 2015; Wagner et al., 2014; Windsor et al., 2018).
  Enhancing peatland resilience to wildfire through peatland habitat restoration; building the evidence base
  Dr N Kettridge
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
The recent Saddleworth Moor fire burned over 1000 hectares of UK upland, instigated a major national incident, led to the evacuation of 100 homes and placed considerable strain on UK emergency services, with even the army activated to support fire suppression.
