Project Rationale. Plastic contamination of the oceans is of considerable concern and may cause significant damage to ecosystem structure and function.
  The origin of pseudotachylytes in seismogenic fault zones and their role during slow interseismic creep
  Dr E Mariani, Prof D Faulkner, Dr L Menegon, Prof G Di Toro
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this project is to gain insight into the processes that control the seismic cycle by investigating the relationship between pseudotachylytes and associated mylonites in present-day as well as ancient seismogenic fault zones.
  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

Project Rationale. There is growing concern about the impact of plastic pollution (particularly microplastics) on ocean ecosystems and human health[1].
  Invisible Threats to Oceans (InTO): assessing the combined toxicity effects of emerging anthropogenic pollutants on microbial communities (SUPER DTP)
  Dr S Matallana-Surget, Dr T Gutierrez
Application Deadline: 29 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Emerging pollutants represent one of the main environmental concerns; they are defined as new contaminants produced by modern society that are not routinely monitored, but cause adverse ecological effects.
