  Climate Change, Plate Tectonics and Machine Learning
  Dr C Rychert, Dr J Whiteside
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Our understanding of the transition from the lithospheric plate to the weaker asthenosphere has recently been revolutionized by seismic imaging that finds a sharp, strong discontinuity at the base of the plate.
  Climate change influences on landsliding in the British Isles
  Dr M Ibsen, Dr A P Dykes, Dr S Downward
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change predictions for the British Isles generally indicate that there will be higher winter rainfall in future, but with more frequent high intensity rainfall events at any time of year.
  Abrupt climate change during the last deglaciation: linking records from Greenland to central Europe.
  Prof A Kemp, Prof PG Langdon, Dr J Whiteside
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. The last deglaciation (16,000 – 11,000 years ago) was Earth’s most recent massive climate change but its dynamics are not adequately understood.
  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.
  Resolving the frequency of mass movements (landslides, rockfalls) in response to climate change with new luminescence techniques
  Dr R Smedley, Dr E Mariani, Dr S Dunning
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of the project is to develop new luminescence techniques to resolve the record of mass movements (landslides, rockfalls) in response to deglaciation using well constrained examples in the United Kingdom initially, followed by W Greenland.
  Palaeo Constraints on the 1.5°C World: What does the Pliocene tell us about the long-terms effects of atmospheric CO2 at ~400 ppmv
  Prof A Haywood, Dr D Hill
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The issue. Our ability to limit the rise in global temperature in line with the Paris Agreement is uncertain due to an inadequate understanding of the long-term sensitivity of the Earth and Climate System to CO2.
  Slope stability and climate change in high-mountain regions: Understanding and predicting geo-hazards.
  Dr A Abellan, Dr B Murphy, Dr J West, Dr D Quincey
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

HIGHLIGHTS. Timely project. a game changing approach to improve understanding, model and forecast landslides in mountainous areas is urgently needed.
  Plankton size, climate and ocean function through time.
  Dr S Gibbs, Dr B Ward, Prof P Bown
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Plankton are fundamental to life on Earth as the base of the marine food web and an important carbon sink.
  Detecting ancient carbon leaking from permafrost soils across the Arctic
  Dr J Dean, Prof R Chiverell, Dr M Garnett, Dr J Vonk
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this project is to establish modeling and conceptual frameworks to identify enhanced release of carbon from permafrost catchments due to climate change and landscape disturbance.
  Bayesian analysis of Earth’s climate sensitivity: past, present and future
  Dr P Goodwin, Dr K Oliver, Prof T Tyrrell
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. The biggest cause of uncertainty in predicting the magnitude of future global warming, for a given pattern of CO2 emissions, lies in Earth’s ‘climate sensitivity’ (the increase in average surface temperature following a sustained doubling of atmospheric carbon dioxide).
