  QUADRAT DTP CASE: Sustainable Resilience to Coastal Erosion: Innovative Approaches to Protection of Assets Along Coastlines at Risk
  Dr D Green, Prof J McKinley
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

All coastlines are subject to dynamic change through wave and wind action resulting in significant loss or gain of land through erosion and/or accretion.
  Rifting to continental breakup: Comparing the tectonic evolution of the Porcupine Basin and Rockall Trough with Breakup west of Spain
  Prof T J Reston, Dr S Jones
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The breakup of continents to form ocean basins is a first order tectonic process.
  How does changing bed topography during floods effect turbulence and flow resistance in rivers?
  Dr J Cooper, Dr J Higham
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This experimental project aims to develop new understanding of the role of bed topography in the generation of turbulence and flow resistance in gravel-bed rivers during floods, and thus elucidate the critical role that turbulence has on flood risk and the transport and dispersion of sediment and pollutants.
  Quantification of benthic invertebrate burrow architecture
  Prof M Solan, Dr J Leyland, Dr J Godbold, Mr M Mavrogordato
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Marine sediments provide habitat for a wide range of organisms and exploitation of this three-dimensional environment is important in mediating major ecosystem properties.
  Microplastic-sediment interactions (MiPSi)
  Research Group: Earth Surface Science
  Dr K Spencer, Prof G Wharton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The accelerating global release of microplastics (mP) into the aquatic environment seems inevitable, with long-term consequences for water quality and biodiversity.
  Proglacial landscape evolution across the Antarctic Peninsula with Holocene climate change
  Dr J Carrivick
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ice sheet margin around the Antarctic Peninsula receded rapidly from its Last Glacial Maximum (LGM) position on the continental shelf edge ~ 18 ka (Davies et al., 2012) to a position towards the head of fjords, and in some cases onto land.
  Avalanche dynamics on desert dunes: Processes and drivers, from ancient to modern
  Dr J Nield, Dr R Ewing, Dr M Baddock
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Avalanching is responsible for wind-blown dune migration on Earth and Mars and because avalanches are preserved in dune stratigraphy, they are the most direct way that we can interpret past wind-climate conditions.
