  Assessing the applicability of Artificial Intelligence in the Environmental Impact Assessment process – a case study of oil and gas projects
  Dr B Anifowose
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project undertakes an empirical evaluation of AI and machine learning application to specific EIA operating principles for selected oil and gas projects.
  Caprock and overburden characterisation: avoiding leakage of CO2 from CCS sites
  Prof RH Worden, Prof D Faulkner, Prof K Taylor, Dr P Armitage
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of the project is to produce unusual data to characterise the caprock and overburden to CCS sites in the UK and beyond. CCS is an essential piece of the technical jigsaw required to cut greenhouse gas emissions.
  In-situ reduction reduction of greenhouse gases from the Athabasca oil sands tailings ponds: detailed insights using ultrahigh resolution mass spectrometry
  Dr M Barrow, Prof G Bending
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Highlights. State-of-the-art mass spectrometry instrumentation (amongst world-leading). International environmental research.
  Effects of dispersants on mitigating environmental impacts of marine oil pollution: insights from microbiological, chemical and field investigations.
  Dr B McKew, Dr R Holland, Dr T J McGenity
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Scientific background. Oil spills are one of the most challenging threats to the marine environment that can have long-. term impacts on fisheries, the economy and society.
  Pore-scale 3D Imaging of Hydrogen Storage in Reservoir Rocks
  Research Group: Institute of GeoEnergy Engineering
  Dr K Singh, Prof S Geiger, Dr A Busch
Application Deadline: 6 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Subsurface hydrogen storage can be a viable option to account for fluctuations in the global energy demand from renewable resources.
  Where did all the sulphur go? Understanding reactions of sulphur with iron and organic matter in anoxic oceans
  Dr C Marz, Prof C.L. Peacock, Dr R Newton, Prof S Poulton
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Over the last decades, it has emerged that increased CO2 in the atmosphere since the industrial revolution is one of the main drivers of accelerated global climate change.
  Getting the most out of deep-sea images for ecological assessment
  Dr B Thornton, Dr J Durden, Dr B Bett
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Monitoring benthic communities is a fundamental, and in many jurisdictions legal, requirement for the conservation of habitats (e.g.
  Conversion of carbon dioxide into fuels for energy storage.
  Dr C.A. Ponce-de-Leon-Albarran, Dr L. Wang
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is currently 411 parts per million (ppm) and increases 2 ppm/year possibly due to fossil fuel consumption, deforestation, as well as natural processes contributing to the greenhouse effect such as global warming.
  Smarter analysis of satellite data for air quality regulators (CENTA2-PHYS5-VAND1)
  Dr J Vande Hey, Dr E Ferranti
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Satellite observations are increasing in spatial resolution providing a new source of data for policy makers and regulatory organisations.
  Next-generation model for plant ozone damage: a big step towards smaller uncertainties and more robust climate predictions. PhD in Mathematics (NERC GW4+ DTP)
  Prof N Unger
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Prof Nadine Unger, Department of Mathematics, College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences, University of Exeter.
