  QUADRAT DTP CASE: The interaction between carbonates, igneous intrusions and CO2 in the ocean system
  Dr D Muirhead, Dr K O'Driscoll
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Contact metamorphism of carbonaceous sedimentary rocks can lead to the release of significant volumes of gases, particularly CO2 and related fluids.
  QUADRAT DTP: Co-evolution of Earth and Life: are land plants good for coral reefs?
  Dr A Brasier, Dr J Sigwart
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

For the first four billion years of its history, the Earth was a fundamentally different planet to that which we know today. the only green covering on land (if any) was provided by mats of microbes.
  QUADRAT DTP: Exploring the potential of multi-tissue sulphur and strontium isotope analysis and isoscape modelling to reconstruct past faunal movements
  Dr K Britton, Dr N Ogle
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The reconstruction of the lifetime movements of archaeological animals can provide us with unique perspectives on past human societies and – when involving wild species – can also provide valuable insights into ancient ecosystems.
  QUADRAT DTP: Is macroalgal carbon sequestration the ’elephant in the Blue Carbon room’ ?
  Prof U Witte, Dr K O'Driscoll
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Marine plants draw down CO2, and in a world of rising atmospheric CO2 levels carbon sinks in vegetated coastal ecosystems can sequester CO2 on geological time scales and are now referred to as ’Blue Carbon’.
  QUADRAT DTP: Trace element behaviour in surface environments on enriched shales, Britain and Ireland
  Prof J Parnell, Prof A Meharg
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A critical aspect of environmental studies is the understanding of how trace elements are distributed in surface deposits where they can cause toxicity in the water supply, animals and foodstuffs.
  The Significance of Macroalgal Detritus for Marine Food Webs and Blue-Carbon Sequestration
  Prof U Witte, Prof W Austin, Dr P Smith
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Marine plants draw down CO2, and in a world of rising atmospheric CO2 levels carbon sinks in vegetated coastal ecosystems can sequester CO2 on geological time scales and are now referred to as ‘Blue Carbon’.
  Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) from depleted Sandstone and Carbonate/chalk reservoirs
  Dr P Jadhawar, Dr H Hamidi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nearly one third of the oil is left behind in the reservoir after the primary and secondary recovery methods of oil recovery.
  Exploitation and production from Methane Hydrate reservoirs (Arctic and Subsea porous media)
  Dr P Jadhawar, Dr J Derksen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Naturally occurring gas (mostly methane) hydrates along the continental margins (coastal offshore) and permafrost sediments are the clean source of energy outnumbering the rest forms of conventional energy sources.
  Blue carbon change on polar continental shelves with ocean colour & current dynamics
  Dr D K A Barnes
Application Deadline: 19 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Marine ice losses around the polar regions are one of the most fundamental physical responses of the Earth system to rising atmospheric greenhouse gas concentrations.
  Do extra-terrestrial impacts offer global stratigraphical markers?
  Dr V Peck, Prof C Lane
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ice, marine and terrestrial sediment archives offer invaluable insights into Earth System processes. Precise tie-points between palaeorecords is essential to examin the phasing and drivers of inter-hemisphere climate variability.
  Ice sheets, fans and drifts: how glacial-marine processes and climate change have built the West Antarctic continental margin
  Dr R Larter, Prof Julian Dowdeswell
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The West Antarctic Ice Sheet has advanced and retreated across its adjacent continental margin many times during the Neogene and Quaternary, possibly collapsing entirely during the last interglacial (Dutton et al., 2015).
  Ice to Iron
  Dr P Fretwell, Dr A Piotrowski
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Glacial sediments are important sources of nutrients to the ocean, especially the Southern Ocean where nutrient-stimulated changes in the biological pump plays a large role in global carbon cycling.
  Reconstructing variability of the ‘cold water route’ through the mid to late Pleistocene
  Dr V Peck, Dr E McClymont
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Atlantic meridional overturning circulation (AMOC) plays a fundamental role in regulating the Earth’s climate. Past reductions in the strength of this overturning circulation have been associated with dramatic cooling in the northern hemisphere.
  The physics and biology of the ocean carbon sink: how air-sea interactions affect organic carbon uptake and sequestration in the Southern Ocean.
  Dr D Jones, Dr A Martin, Prof A Naveira-Garabato
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The water masses leaving the Southern Ocean form a major conduit of atmospheric carbon into the interior of the global ocean. Part of this transport is via the ‘solubility carbon pump’ whereby CO2 dissolved in seawater is transported into the interior ocean.
  The mysterious microbial ecosystem beneath our feet: Unravelling the groundwater microbiology archive
  Mr J Sorensen
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This FRESH CDT project aims to provide the first overview of the UK’s groundwater microbial ecosystem. Groundwater constitutes 99% of all accessible freshwater on the planet and is a vital resource for public water supply in the UK.
