  SCENARIO - Investigating the climate feedbacks that will determine the fate of the Greenland ice sheet
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr R Smith, Dr J Gregory, Dr J Robson
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sea level change is one of the mostly widely recognised and potentially serious consequences of climate change due to emissions of greenhouse gases.
  ONE Planet DTP - Impact of Arctic tundra snowpack insulation on soil temperatures and carbon fluxes (Ref: OP202013)
  Dr N Rutter
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In Arctic tundra, snowpacks play a critical role in mediating energy exchanges and carbon fluxes between the land surface and the atmosphere.
  ONE Planet DTP - Improving UK Met Office predictions of Arctic Weather (Ref: OP20212)
  Dr N Rutter
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is part of the ONE Planet DTP. Find out more here. https://research.ncl.ac.uk/one-planet/. High quality Arctic weather forecasts are urgently needed for northern communities, polar shipping navigability and natural resource policy decisions.
  Tropical weather systems and their global impacts: How will they evolve with climate change? (MATTHEWSAU20SCIO)
  Prof A J Matthews, Prof D Stevens
Application Deadline: 30 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The eastern Indian and western Pacific Oceans form the “tropical warm pool”, the largest area of warm ocean on the planet. The warm pool provides the heat and moisture for the most intense atmospheric convection (thousands of cumulonimbus clouds) on Earth.
  Climate change and the evolution of insect mating systems
  Dr SJ Cornell, Dr T Price
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The pervasiveness among animal species of polyandry – i.e., females mating with multiple males – perplexes evolutionary biologists, because it is costly to females (e.g.
  SCENARIO - Causal discovery algorithms for the study of climate change impacts on the global water cycle
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr M.I. Hegglin, Dr V Ojha
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The water cycle plays a critical role in shaping the global environment and supporting life on Earth. Climate change is predicted to lead to changes in the water cycle, affect available water resources, and as a consequence endanger the livelihoods of societies especially in the developing world.
  SCENARIO - Developing an urban canopy model for improved weather forecasts in cities
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Prof J Barlow, Dr O Coceal, Dr M Carpentieri
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  ONE Planet DTP - A new 3D hydrogeological dataset for the UK to drive projections of hydrological extremes under climate change (OP20296)
  Dr E Lewis
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Physically based (PB) hydrological models are essential for flood and water resources management under changing climate and land use patterns.
  ONE Planet DTP - Developing probabilistic precipitation datasets for high mountain regions in a changing climate (OP20298)
  Dr E Lewis
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Precipitation data is fundamental to understanding hydrological processes, yet precipitation patterns and variability in mountain regions are poorly understood.
  ONE Planet DTP - Simulating evolving snow processes in the changing climate of High Mountain Asia (OP20276)
  Dr N Forsythe
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

River flows originating in High Mountain Asia (HMA) – i.e. the Himalaya and Tibetan Plateau -- support the livelihoods of hundreds of millions of people.
