  Pore-scale 3D Imaging of Hydrogen Storage in Reservoir Rocks
  Research Group: Institute of GeoEnergy Engineering
  Dr K Singh, Prof S Geiger, Dr A Busch
Application Deadline: 6 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Subsurface hydrogen storage can be a viable option to account for fluctuations in the global energy demand from renewable resources.
  3D quantitative analysis of textures in palaeobiology: environments, taphonomy and exceptional preservation (CENTA2-SGGE13-PURN1)
  Prof M Purnell, Prof S E Gabbott
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The roughness or texture of surfaces is intuitively obvious and, at a course scale, easily discernible through touch and sight. We can see and feel that some bedding surfaces are rougher than others, or that some parts of an exceptionally preserved fossils appear smoother than the matrix, or other parts of the fossil.
  How does magma move through sill-complexes?
  Dr C Magee, Dr D Paton
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisors. Dr Craig Magee (Leeds), Dr William McCarthy (St Andrews), Dr Douglas Paton (Leeds). Overview. Understanding how magma intrusion controls the location of volcanoes and pre-eruption warning signals is critical to hazard assessment.
  Depositional architecture and deformation of an active interbasinal relay zone: Corinth Isthmus, Greece
  Dr R Collier, Prof DM Hodgson
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Relay zones in active rifts are areas where strain is distributed between overlapping normal faults. At the scale of the major basin-bounding faults, interbasinal relay zones (or accommodation zones) separate depocentres along the rift axis.
  How hot is the bottom of Earth’s mantle?
  Dr A Walker, Dr C Davies, Dr A Nowacki
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Can you combine geophysics, fluid dynamics and mineralogy to construct a deep-Earth thermometer and better constrain Earth’s energy budget?.
  Layers? No Layers? Or both: Multi-disciplinary study of partially stratified layers in Earth’s outer core
  Dr S Rost, Dr J Mound, Dr A Nowacki, Dr C Davies
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Earth’s magnetic field is essential for life on Earth and is produced in Earth’s outer core. Numerical models of the geodynamo show that a combination of chaotic convection of the liquid iron-nickel alloy and Earth’s rotation produces the flow structures essential for the geodynamo process.
  Exploring combined geothermal power and mineral extraction potential of the Galway granite complex
  Dr D Mcnamara, Prof J Wheeler, Prof D Faulkner, Dr S Piazolo
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project seeks to carry out a detailed structural analysis of the fracture networks in and around the Galway granite, determine through flow modelling how it may operate as an enhanced geothermal system, and explore ore mineralisation related to hydrothermal flow within existing structural networks.
  Bone-metal (brittle-elastic) bond durability and fatigue derived from coupled Acoustic Emission and X-ray Computed Tomography
  Dr P Benson, Dr G Tozzi, Prof G Blunn
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a self-funded, 3 year full time PhD, to commence in October 2019 or February 2020. The PhD will be based in the School of Earth and Environmental Sciences and will be supervised by Dr.
  Induced fracture and fluid flow in tight oil reservoirs: viscosity and temperature effects
  Dr P Benson, Dr G Swift, Dr G Tozzi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a self-funded, 3 year full time PhD, to commence in October 2019 or February 2020. The PhD will be based in the School of Earth and Environmental Sciences and will be supervised by Dr.
  Improved understanding of the Vaiont landslide based on refined modelling using updated geological information
  Dr A P Dykes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Vaiont landslide occurred in 1963 in northern Italy and has perplexed researchers ever since. Recently, however, new geological information and interpretations have led to an entirely new framework for understanding the event.
