  Reducing Uncertainty in the Response of the Earth System to Anthropogenic CO2 Emissions with Statistical Emulation of Land Surface Models. PhD in Mathematics (NERC GW4+ DTP)
  Dr O Stoner
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Dr Oliver Stoner, Department of Mathematics, College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences, University of Exeter.
  NERC-funded PhD studentships: Department of Earth Science and Engineering, Imperial College London

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Science and Solutions for a Changing Planet (SSCP) Doctoral Training Partnership integrates six host partners and a number of business and policy sector partners, to offer an exciting programme that trains and inspires the next generation of environmental experts and leaders to tackle some of the toughest challenges of our time.
  The Role of Place and Scale on Effectiveness of Temporary Storage Areas for Surface Runoff Attenuation
  Dr M Wilkinson, Dr J Geris, Prof P Hallett
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project addresses the need to understand where and at what scale land management could help to improve above and below ground storm water storage for managing floods.
  Modelling the influence of solar activity on climate. PhD in Physics and Astronomy (NERC GW4+ DTP)
  Dr J Manners
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Dr James Manners, Department of Physics and Astronomy, College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences, University of Exeter.
  Transport of climate active trace gases between the atmosphere and biosphere
  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
  Prof R Kerr
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Overview. Soils both produce and degrade/consume trace volatile gases, as such they are a critical component of global cycling for all greenhouse and climate affecting gases.
  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.
  Benefit of high resolution models for climate predictions. PhD in Mathematics (NERC GW4+ DTP)
  Prof A Scaife
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Prof Adam Scaife, Department of Mathematics, College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences, University of Exeter.
  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.
  Statistical post-processing of ensemble forecasts of compound weather risk. PhD in Mathematics (NERC GW4+ DTP)
  Dr F Kwasniok
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Dr Frank Kwasniok, Department of Mathematics, College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences, University of Exeter.
  Forever Blowing Bubbles: Quantifying Methane Discharge from Inland Water Systems (IAPETUS2 Project)
  Dr A Bass, Dr C Gauchotte-Lindsay
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Methane (CH4) is one of the most potent greenhouse gases and a significant regulator of global climate. Significant CH4 degassing occurs from inland aquatic systems, but substantial variability in spatial and temporal flux rates mean quantifying and characterising this pathway is challenging.
  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.
