  CO2 Uptake by the Southern Ocean: Using atmospheric measurements to understand the key processes (SUNTHARALINGAMUENV20ARIES)
  Dr P Suntharalingam, Dr A Jones, Dr A Manning, Prof C Le Quere
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

BACKGROUND AND APPROACH. The Southern Ocean plays a fundamental role in regulating global climate through uptake of heat and atmospheric carbon-dioxide (CO2), and removes ~40% of atmospheric CO2 derived from human activity.
  Effect of atmospheric stability on aeolian transport
  Dr B Li, Dr J Cooper
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Atmospheric stability is the air vertical movement tendency controlled by atmospheric stratification, which can usually be measured using a series of Richardson numbers.
  SCENARIO - Trapped lee waves as a source of low-level drag on the atmosphere
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr MA Teixeira, Dr SL Gray
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Atmospheric models used for numerical weather prediction and climate modelling have large uncertainties in their representation of small-scale processes that contribute to uncertainties in the large-scale movement of air termed the atmospheric circulation.
  NERC GW4 DTP Projects 2020: (Changing Planet) Estimating greenhouse gas emissions using the next generation of satellite observations
  Dr A Ganesan
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Through the work in Bristol’s School of Geographical Sciences, Atmospheric Chemistry Research Group (ACRG) and the Met Office, the UK is world-leading in the estimation of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions using atmospheric data.
  The imprint of the Atlantic jet stream and storm track on ocean overturning in the North Atlantic
  Prof R Williams, Prof T Woollings, Dr D Smith
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to identify how the atmospheric jet stream affects the meridional overturning in the North Atlantic by diagnosing coupled atmosphere-ocean models.
  NERC GW4+ DTP PhD studentship: Linking large-scale oceanic and atmospheric forcings to local scale flooding via machine learning
  Dr T Kjeldsen
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership (GW4+ DTP).
  Arctic climate extremes: the role of changing interactions between atmospheric modes (MARSHALLUBAS20ARIES)
  Dr G Marshall, Prof I Renfrew, Dr S Hosking, Dr J Jones
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

SCIENTIFIC BACKGROUND. During the past few decades the Arctic has experienced the greatest warming on Earth. the resultant sea ice loss, permafrost melting and snow cover changes have affected the regional hydrology, ecosystems and indigenous peoples.
  Total Atmospheric Emissions from the Biosphere
  Dr W J Bloss, Dr L Kramer
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The dominant source of hydrocarbons to the atmosphere is vegetation – biogenic volatile organic compounds or BVOCs. In the atmosphere, BVOCs undergo chemical processing, leading to the formation of secondary pollutants such as ozone and organic aerosol particles, affecting human and environmental health and climate.
  SCENARIO - Using high-resolution climate models to predict increases in atmospheric turbulence
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Prof P Williams, Dr R Schiemann
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Atmospheric turbulence is the leading cause of in-flight injuries to air travellers and flight attendants. Tens of thousands of aircraft encounter severe turbulence annually, injuring hundreds of people and causing structural damage to planes.
  Space weather at mid-latitudes: climatology, dynamics and drivers of atmospheric Joule heating
  Dr A Grocott, Prof J Wild
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Earth experiences ‘space weather’ that impacts the planetary environment in a variety of ways. These impacts are a recognised environmental hazard, as detailed in the UK National Risk Register.
