  Assessing the millennial and centennial variability of the West African Monsoon during the late Quaternary: palaeodata and modelling approach
  Dr F Marret-Davies, Prof A Morse
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of the project is to qualitatively and quantitatively reconstruct the late Quaternary variability of the monsoon system off West Africa to better understand causes and consequences in periods of warmer than today conditions.
  SEESALT: Novel ways to ’SEE’ coastal ’SALT’ marshes using low-cost drones and sensors
  Dr D Green, Dr D Mauquoy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Saltmarshes are found extensively along low wave energy coastlines resulting from fine sediment accumulation and vegetation establishment.
  2020_62: The role of hydrodynamics in mediating effects of climate change on ecosystem stability and functioning
  Dr S Pawar, Prof G O Hughes, Prof M D Piggott, Dr E van Sebille
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisors. Dr Samraat Pawar ([email protected]); Professor Matthew Piggott, Department of Earth Science & Engineering; Professor Graham Hughes, Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering; Dr Erik van Sebille, external.
  Global carbon cycle feedbacks from massive volcanism
  Dr S Greene, Dr S Jones
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Carbon emissions to the atmosphere can trigger both positive feedbacks, adding further carbon to the atmosphere, and negative feedbacks, sequestering carbon in rocks or sediments.
  Severe weather over Southeast Asia: fieldwork and modelling
  Dr C Birch, Dr J Marsham, Dr R Neely
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Maritime Continent in Southeast Asia is a key region in the global weather and climate system. Its complex island geography and position among the warmest oceans on Earth lead to a multi-scale concoction of severe atmospheric convective and dynamical weather systems.
  Improved time-stepping schemes in weather and climate models
  Prof P Williams, Dr H Weller
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"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 - Next-generation representation of plant water stress in land-surface models
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Prof P L Vidale, Prof A Verhoef
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The processes that link the cycles of water and carbon are fundamental, and largely govern the (observed and simulated) dynamics of ecosystems and climate.
  Architectural Atmospheres: Tools, Methods and Design Processes - what agents and processes are brought into play to make the notion of atmosphere operational in defining new tools and design methodologies
  Dr I Wieczorek, Prof F B Samuel
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD is open to those who wish to explore and promote the sensory dimension of the built environment and, particularly, to evaluate and critically reflect on the notion of ambiance/atmosphere (as a spatial phenomenon) and its importance for the design of lived space, and thus, its implications for architectural production.
  Closing loopholes in the nitrogen cycle: Nitrification now and in the future
  Dr A Yool, Prof T Tyrrell, Dr A Martin, Prof N Bates
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Nitrification ( oxidation) of ammonia (NH3) back to nitrate (NO3-) is an important regenerative step in the nitrogen cycles of both marine and terrestrial systems.
