  SCENARIO: How do trees affect the hydrological cycle?
  Dr E Blyth, Prof A Verhoef, Dr E Robinson, Dr T Nisbet
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
One of the least constrained components of the hydrological cycle is the amount of rainfall that is captured by the vegetation and recycled back to the atmosphere – the Interception.
  SCENARIO: Quantifying the flow and nutrient dynamic changes for a major flood relief scheme in the lower River Thames to better manage water quality and aquatic ecology
  Dr M Bowes, Mr M Clegg, Dr S Robinson, Dr M Hutchins
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
The Thames basin is very densely populated, containing one fifth of the UK population. It floods regularly, and climate change projections suggest that flooding will increase over the coming century, with 15,000 homes being at risk of inundation within the lower reaches of the catchment.
  SCENARIO: The impacts of long-term declines in insect abundance on ecosystem function
  Mr D Roy, Prof T Oliver, Prof J Thomas, Dr T Johns
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
The plight of insects has generated worldwide attention from the scientific community and wider public. Recent interest was stimulated by a 27 year study(1) suggesting a loss of 75% in the biomass of flying insects from Protected Areas in Germany, quickly labelled as ‘ecological Armageddon’.
  EPSRC DTP PhD Studentship in Mathematics & Hydrology - Improving European flood forecasts using data assimilation
  Dr S L Dance, Dr H Cloke
Application Deadline: 22 February 2019
The annual cost due to flood damage in Europe is expected to rise to 100 billion EUR by the year 2080, due to a combination of climate change and socio-economic growth.
  Improved time-stepping schemes in weather and climate models
  Prof P Williams, Dr H Weller
Applications accepted all year round
"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 :Data synthesis and integration for improved climate impact assessment, modelling and policy
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr R Cornforth, Dr E Tarnavsky
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Climate change is already demonstrated in changes in the frequency and severity of extreme weather events.
  SCENARIO: A new approach to navigating uncertainty in climate-related hydrologic risk
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Prof T Shepherd, Dr K.A. Smith, Prof N Arnell, Dr G Darch
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Climate change poses a severe threat to the environment, and it is essential to be able to evaluate climate-related risk and provide appropriate guidance to decision-makers.
  SCENARIO: Analysis of peatland carbon dynamics using combined optical and microwave satellite data
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Prof K Morrison, Dr TL Quaife
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Peatlands are a key component of the terrestrial carbon cycle and sequester large amounts of carbon from the atmosphere. Monitoring their health and state is therefore key to understanding carbon dynamics and the important role peatlands play in the climate, and in climate change.
  SCENARIO: Bias correction in Data Assimilation
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr A Fowler, Dr A S Lawless
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Data assimilation, the process of initializing a computer model forecast using the latest observational data, has proven fundamental to the accuracy of modern day weather forecasting.
  SCENARIO: Climate Response to Short-lived Pollutants (CReSP)
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Prof W Collins, Prof K Shine, Dr N Bellouin
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
This project is to investigate the impacts of air pollutants on climate. As well as causing health problems, air pollutants such as ozone, soot and sulphuric acid also affect climate by changing the Earth’s radiation balance.
