  SCENARIO: Enhancing forecasting flood inundation mapping through data assimilation
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr S L Dance, Dr S Vetra-Carvalho
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Flooding is major risk for lives and livelihoods around the world. In Europe alone, the annual cost due to flood damage is expected to rise to 100 billion EUR by the year 2080, due to a combination of climate change and socio-economic growth.
  SCENARIO: Nutrient release from coniferous woodland stimulated by changes in forest management: A new nitrate time bomb?
  Dr M Lukac, Mr M Ascott, Dr E Vanguelova
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Nitrogen (N) pollution of rivers and groundwater costs billions of pounds per year globally in water treatment and environmental damage from eutrophication.
  Seeing the unseen: application of novel sensor networks to measure the potential of soils for greenhouse gas mitigation.
  Dr L Todman, Dr M Lukac
Application Deadline: 16 January 2019
Soils can store carbon but also emit greenhouse gases such as nitrous oxide. As such, there is global interest in understanding the role that soils could play in mitigating net greenhouse gas emissions.
  SCENARIO: Engineering soil microbial carbon metabolism for multiple environmental benefits
  Dr E J Shaw, Dr R Griffiths, Dr M Redmile-Gordon, Dr E Armenise
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Soils are essential to human well-being because they perform multiple functions that underpin the provision of ecosystem services that sustain life and regulate climate.
  A pressure governing approach for modelling of variable flow systems in Building Performance Simulation (BPS) tools
  Dr M Shahrestani, Dr S Smith, Assoc Prof E A Essah
Applications accepted all year round
Heating and cooling distribution systems are the most common parts of heating, ventilation, air-conditioning and refrigeration (HVAC&R) systems, which account for a significant portion of energy used in HVAC&R systems.
  A taxonomy of cities - using urban typologies to understand the infrastructural dynamics of the UK heat supply
  Dr E Mohareb, Dr P Coker, Dr D Perrotti
Applications accepted all year round
The School of the Built Environment is currently increasing its research capacity associated with urban scale sustainability.
  Applications of Urban Metabolism for Mitigating Resource Demands
  Dr E Mohareb
Applications accepted all year round
In an increasingly urbanized world, cities must continue to drive global economic activity whilst having a minimal impact on their environmental support systems.
  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
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.
  CFD study of the impact of green infrastructure on urban microclimate
  Dr Z Luo
Applications accepted all year round
Green infrastructure (GI) has been considered as one of most important passive air quality control strategies in cities for promoting health benefits as well as enhancing ecological service such as mitigating urban heat island.
  Climatic responsive heating and cooling for indoor thermal environments
  Dr R Yao
Applications accepted all year round
Climate change and regional climates significantly impact on energy consumption of heating and cooling for achieving thermal comfort.
