  Effects of atmospheric Nitrogen pollution on Soil Carbon Storage and greenhouse gas emission from forests soils.
  Dr S Ullah, Dr L Hamilton
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Conservation of forest ecosystems support a range of vital functions including providing habitat to wildlife, regulation of water resources and capturing atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) for long-term storage in soils and in biomass.
  Rivers of the dammed: how should beavers fit and function in UK landscapes?
  Dr S Dixon, Dr J Larsen, Prof V Gauci
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Beavers are one of nature’s most prolific “ecosystem engineers”, able to radically reshape river systems and the surrounding landscape, through their unique ability to build dams and alter the flow of water, sediment, and nutrients.
  Quantifying temperature change in the sub-Antarctic (NERC GW4+ DTP)
  Dr B.D.A. Naafs, Dr A Gallego-Sala, Dr S Roberts
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

  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.
  Molecular Modeling for Design of Biochar Materials
  Dr V Erastova
Application Deadline: 9 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project brings molecular modeling into biochar research, providing atomistic details to the key properties of biochar, and through this enabling the informed design and optimization of biochar for desirable functionality.
  Quantifying the contribution of enhanced carbonate weathering to Earth system resilience. PhD in Geography (NERC GW4+ DTP)
  Prof T Lenton
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Prof Tim Lenton, Department of Geography, College of Life and Environmental Sciences, University of Exeter. Additional Supervisors.
  Will continental carbonates produce less or more deposition as we move into the Anthropocene?
  Dr M Rogerson
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Understanding future climate, and understanding carbon sequestration strategies, requires that we enhance our understanding of how carbon behaves in the Earth System.
  Herbivore and mycorrhizal mediation of carbon cycling in heather moorlands
  Dr S M Sait, Prof K. Field, Prof P Chapman
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The multiple drivers of environmental change, such as climate change and pollution, have led to widespread negative impacts on ecosystem functioning and services that are critical for human well-being.
  Understanding controls on peat formation in the Congo basin (CENTA2-SGGE2-BOOM)
  Dr A Boom, Prof S Page, Dr S Sjögersten
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tropical peatlands are dense, long-term stores of carbon (C) that are vital components of global C soil-atmosphere exchange processes.
  Can enhanced weathering provide an effective climate change mitigation strategy?
  Dr C Pearce, Dr G Andrews, Prof R James
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Anthropogenic inputs of carbon dioxide (CO2) to the atmosphere are the primary cause of global warming.
  Determining Earth’s Volatile Cycling using Machine Learning
  Dr C Rychert, Dr T Henstock
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Earth’s volatile cycle is fundamental to human existence on the planet. However, precise constraints on this system have proved challenging.
  Microplastic hotspots on the deep seafloor: Investigating the role of seafloor currents in microplastic transport and accumulation
  Dr M Clare, Prof A Cundy, Dr A Horton, Dr I Kane
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. There is growing concern about the impact of plastic pollution (particularly microplastics) on ocean ecosystems and human health[1].
  Quantifying Hydrothermal Exchanges between Seawater and the Lower Oceanic Crust: Evidence from the Oman Drilling Project
  Prof D Teagle, Dr B Thornton, Dr R.M. Coggon, Dr J Matter
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Thermal and chemical exchanges between the oceans and the oceanic crust during hydrothermal circulation at mid-ocean ridges exert major controls on the chemistry of seawater.
  Quantifying Variations in Hydrothermal Contributions to the Oceans:Scaling from drill core observations to global models
  Dr R.M. Coggon, Prof D Teagle, Dr B Thornton
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Ocean chemistry reflects a dynamic balance between riverine inputs, biological processing, sediment burial, and hydrothermal exchanges with ocean crust.
