  Earth observation for sustainable sugarcane production
  Dr D Simms, Dr P Burgess
Application Deadline: 27 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sugarcane production must address the challenge between the need to increase crop production and improve labour productivity whilst improving the efficiency of water and fertiliser use (Hess et al, 2016).

  Dr C Bond, Prof J McKinley
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Digitalisation and large, multi-dimensional, dynamic data are now the main stay of Earth and Environmental Science, but how we visualise, handle, analyse and make decisions from these datasets is still a significant challenge.
  Validation of satellite derived bathymetry data in dynamic seabed settings (part of the SENSE Centre for Doctoral Training)
  Prof DM Hodgson, Dr A Hogg
Application Deadline: 19 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The shallow seabed is a highly dynamic setting, with mobile erosional and depositional bedforms, and rapid deformation and remobilisation events, constantly changing the bathymetry.

  QUADRAT DTP: Climate change impacts on seasonal water storage and flow: implications for environmental management
  Dr J Geris, Dr D Mullan
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Catchment water storage is one of the most important functions controlling water availability and streamflow. Where and when water is stored and how different ’stores’ (e.g.
  QUADRAT DTP: Environmental ancient DNA analysis of Lateglacial and Early Holocene contexts in Ireland and Scotland
  Dr L Girdland Flink, Dr G Plunkett
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to refine our understanding of Lateglacial and Early Holocene biodiversity and ecosystems in Scotland and Ireland using ancient DNA extracted from ancient sediments (sedimentary ancient DNA, or sedaDNA).
  Antarctic Grounding Line Migration from ICESat-2 Altimetry (part of the SENSE Centre for Doctoral Training)
  Dr OJ Marsh, Dr A Hogg
Application Deadline: 19 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project offers an exciting opportunity to work at the interface of climate and space science, making an important contribution to international efforts to study the effects and impact of climate change.
  Unveiling the 4D variability in the lithospheric cradle of the Antarctic ice sheet
  Dr F Ferraccioli, Dr C Green
Application Deadline: 19 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project leverages on a new EO project of ESA, 4D Antarctica, which aims to investigate and model the Antarctic lithosphere and assess its effects on geothermal heat flux variability.
  Causes and solutions for the Great Atlantic Sargassum Belt (part of the SENSE Centre for Doctoral Training)
  Dr J Wolf
Application Deadline: 19 January 2020

  Prof M Srokosz, Dr F Jebri, Prof S Tett
Application Deadline: 19 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The key hypothesis to be examined is that southwest Indian Ocean (SWIO) currents are changing and will continue to change into the future (possibly due to anthropogenic climate change).
  QUADRAT DTP: PALLADIA: ParAíba do suL deLtA seDImentary dynAmics
  Dr R Flood, Dr C North
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

  Arctic Greening Across Scales (part of the SENSE Centre for Doctoral Training)
  Dr I Myers-Smith
Application Deadline: 19 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. As the Arctic warms, plants are responding and satellite-measures indicate widespread greening at high latitudes. This “greening of the Arctic” is among the world’s most significant large-scale ecological responses to global climate change1.
  Automatic Tree Recognition for ecological understanding and satellite calibration (part of the SENSE Centre for Doctoral Training)
  Dr S Hancock
Application Deadline: 19 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project summary. Knowledge of forest structure, biomass and leaf area is essential for understanding processes in ecology, climate studies and meteorology.

  Prof P Palmer, Dr E Mitchard, Prof T Keenan
Application Deadline: 19 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Large-scale climate variations, e.g. El Nino, can have immediate effects on the terrestrial carbon cycle via anomalous periods of drought, fire, and storm damage to forests.
