Funding Type

PhD Type

The NERC Panorama DTP has around 24 fully funded studentships for October 2019 starters to study the science of the Earth's atmosphere and climate, Earth processes and the living world.
  Validation of satellite derived bathymetry data in dynamic seabed settings
  Prof DM Hodgson, Dr A Hogg
Application Deadline: 19 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The shallow seabed is a highly dynamic setting, with mobile erosional and depositional bedforms, and rapid deformation and remobilisation events, constantly changing the bathymetry.
  Improved forecasting of pollutant flux, erosion and flood deposits across river catchments using satellite and UAV techniques
  Dr P Kay, Prof DM Hodgson
Application Deadline: 19 January 2020

Funding Type

  Dr K Tansey, Dr H Zhou
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Drought is one of the major concerns for the sustainability and socio-economic development in rural areas in China. Monitoring of crop growth conditions is important for economic development and to avoid food production issues.
