Showing 1 to 9 of 9
  Validating Cenozoic records of deep-sea ostracod diversity
  Dr I Boomer
Applications accepted all year round
Ostracods are microscopic, bivalved crustaceans that have a long fossil record in marine and non-marine habitats. The existence of deep-sea ostracod assemblages in today’s oceans have been known since the 19th century Challenger expedition.
  The evolution of volcanism following sector collapse
  Dr S Watt, Prof T J Reston
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Sector collapses are among the largest volume events to affect volcanic systems, potentially involving the rapid displacement of tens of cubic kilometres of rock.
  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).
  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.
  Tectonomagmatic formation of Earth’s first continents, the Slaufrudalur Pluton, SE Iceland
  Dr A R Hastie, Dr C T Stevenson
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Earth is the only planet in our solar system that has distinctive oceanic and continental crust. Importantly, the growth of Earth’s first stable and preserved continental crust about 4 billion years ago modified the early mantle, hydrosphere and atmosphere and enabled terrestrial life to evolve.
  Carbon emissions from volcanism: the Karoo-Ferrar large igneous province and the Toarcian Oceanic Anoxic Event
  Dr S Greene, Dr S Jones
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Many of the most severe climate ‘events’ and carbon cycle perturbations of the Meso-Cenozoic coincide with major episodes of volcanism linked to Large Igneous Provinces (LIPs).
  Drivers of marine ecosystem change during an ancient abrupt global warming event
  Dr K Edgar, Dr R Butler
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
The Palaeocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum (PETM) ~56 million years ago, is the largest of a series of abrupt global warming events known from the Cenozoic.
  Holocene rapid climate change and vegetation response in Cappadocia, Turkey
  Dr W J Eastwood, Dr J P Sadler
Applications accepted all year round
Multi-proxy approaches to integrated regional studies of environmental variability during the late Glacial and Holocene can provide valuable insights into the ways that significant shifts in climate have affected natural ecosystems, landscapes and human activities over decadal, centennial and millennial timescales.
  River water temperature: understanding river thermalscapes, driving mechanisms and ecological responses
  Prof D M Hannah, Dr S J Dugdale, Dr I A Malcolm
Applications accepted all year round
Water temperature is the ‘master’ river habitat variable, controlling physico-chemical and biological processes within river systems.
