  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 - 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.
  Ice nucleation in aerosols containing biomolecules
  Prof W Schwarzacher, Dr A Rust
Application Deadline: 3 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a 4 year PhD studentship starting in Autumn 2020 as part of the EPSRC CDT in Aerosol Science. https://www.aerosol-cdt.ac.uk/how-to-apply/.
  SCENARIO - Atmosphere blocking dynamics: Persistence, re-intensification and interaction with other weather systems
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr O Martinez-Alvarado, Dr R Schiemann, Dr K Hodges
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Atmospheric blocking occurs when persistent high-pressure systems (or anticyclones) remain quasi-stationary over a given location or region at mid- or high-latitudes.
  ONE Planet DTP - Ocean wave field and climate monitoring with a GNSS Wave Glider (OP20292)
  Dr N Penna
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ocean wave field monitoring is needed for climatology, as it controls the input of wind stress into the oceanic mixed layer and thereby serves as a control for the global ocean climate.
  ONE Planet DTP - Is the future of urban drainage systems blue-green or grey? (OP20218)
  Dr C Walsh
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In England, 3.2 million households are located in areas at risk of surface water flooding, with annual damages exceeding £300 million.
  ONE Planet DTP - Robust protection of water resources in a changing climate (OP20233)
  Dr D Werner
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Robust environmental fate prediction and risk assessment for agrochemicals plays a key role in assuring food security without polluting surface water resources.
  ONE Planet DTP - Global warming and the future of ice caps (Ref: OP202054)
  Prof GH Gudmundsson
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ice caps are one of the fastest changing part of the cryosphere. It is estimated that ice caps and glaciers can contribute between 35-40cm of sea level rise.
  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.
