  NERC GW4+ DTP Projects 2020: (Changing Planet) The impact of global warming on hurricane-induced storm surges in the Caribbean
  Dr R Bingham, Dr D Mitchell
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The islands of the Caribbean are particularly vulnerable to hurricanes, seen most recently during the 2017 hurricane season. Over the last 500 years, hurricanes have caused an estimated 300,000–500,000 deaths in North America and the Caribbean, predominantly in the Small Island Developing States (SIDS) of the Caribbean.

  Dr G Coxon
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

By 2050, it is projected that England will be facing severe water supply shortages due to climate change and increasing demand from growing populations and societal development.
