  EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Mathematics of Planet Earth
We are seeking excellent candidates for 16 fully funded PhD positions, as part of the forth cohort of the newly established EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in the Mathematics of Planet Earth (MPE), jointly run by Imperial College London and the University of Reading.
  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’.
  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: Coupled carbon, water and heat fluxes over the global land surface
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Prof K Haines, Dr TL Quaife, Dr D Hemming
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Simulating changes to the Earth’s energy, water and carbon cycles is a key goal of climate and earth system models.
  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: Improving our understanding of ice cloud microphysics using new aircraft and multi-wavelength radar measurements
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr C Westbrook, Dr T Stein, Dr S Mason
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Ice particles in clouds play an important role for both weather and climate prediction. Half of all precipitation globally is initiated through the formation of ice, while the radiative impact of ice clouds is very important because of their widespread coverage.
