  Bypass to deposition: Architecture and processes in deep-water turbidite transition zones
  Dr C Stevenson, Dr I Kane, Dr R Jerrett, Dr M Poyatos More
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Deep-water turbidite systems have transition zones where flows change their behaviour from bypassing to depositional, often associated with a break in slope and a distinct change in architecture from channels into lobes (i.e.
  Resolving the frequency of mass movement events with new luminescence dating techniques
  Dr R Smedley, Dr E Mariani, Dr S Dunning, Dr J-P Buylaert
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Introduction. Luminescence dating is a geochronological technique important for reconstructing past environments on Earth over the last million years (see Smedley, 2018 for details).
  Modelling movement of large sediment in river flows
  Prof J Hooke, Dr J Cooper
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Motivation and wider context. In high magnitude flood events very large particles, including boulders and large pieces of masonry can be carried, especially in ephemerally-flowing channels of dry climates.
  The equity impact of changing spatial distribution of resources for population health and inequalities
  Dr B Barr, Prof D Taylor-Robinson
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Background. There are large difference in health between richer and poorer areas in the UK. People are 20% more likely to die under the age of 75 in the North, compared to the South of England.
  Utilizing community ecology to examine the role of environmental niches of Histoplasma capsulatum to better understand host-environment dynamics
  Dr C Scantlebury, Prof A J McCarthy, Dr T Helgason
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
In this project we seek to. Identify environmental niches of Histoplasma in households and within communal gathering points in endemic regions, namely Ethiopia and The Gambia.
  Calving behaviour, glacier dynamics and glacier stability in Greenland
  Dr J Lea, Dr N Leonardi, Prof D Mair
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Introduction. The calving of icebergs represent a varied range of processes that are currently too complex to be fully integrated into large scale ice sheet models (Benn et al., 2007; 2017).
  Can periodic sediment input signals make it through to the sedimentary archive?
  Dr R Duller, Prof P Burgess, Dr R Jerrett, Dr K Straub
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Introduction. “How can we accurately decode a sedimentary succession for periodic input sediment supply signals if we have gaps in the succession and signals are shredded?” A common assumption in stratigraphic analysis is the stratigraphic record presents us with an unbiased record of past landscapes & climate.
  Erosion hazards in a changing climate: making inland communities more resilient
  Dr J Cooper, Prof A Plater, Prof J Hooke, Mr D Viner
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
This modelling project aims to quantify how future climate scenarios will affect the frequency and severity of erosion hazards in catchments, the vulnerability of key rural infrastructure and how we might best mitigate their impact.
  Geophysical and stratigraphical evidence for sediment dynamics and catchment landscape evolution in UK lake basins
  Prof R Chiverell, Prof a Biggin, Dr R Smedley
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Understanding the evolution of landscapes is important. They record the complex interplay of natural processes, extreme events (magnitude and frequency), and with the intensification of land use, anthropogenic influences.
  How does bed topography effect turbulence and flow resistance in rivers?
  Dr J Cooper, Dr J Higham
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Introduction. 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.
