  QUADRAT DTP: Co-evolution of Earth and Life: are land plants good for coral reefs?
  Dr A Brasier, Dr J Sigwart
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

For the first four billion years of its history, the Earth was a fundamentally different planet to that which we know today. the only green covering on land (if any) was provided by mats of microbes.
  QUADRAT DTP: Improved pattern recognition in environmental signals using machine learning
  Dr A Gilligan, Dr M Karimirad
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The identification of patterns in, and the classification of, different types of environmental signals is crucial for understanding the processes that generate them.
  QUADRAT DTP: Is macroalgal carbon sequestration the ’elephant in the Blue Carbon room’ ?
  Prof U Witte, Dr K O'Driscoll
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Marine plants draw down CO2, and in a world of rising atmospheric CO2 levels carbon sinks in vegetated coastal ecosystems can sequester CO2 on geological time scales and are now referred to as ’Blue Carbon’.
  QUADRAT DTP: Monitoring environmental change with ambient seismic noise
  Dr D Cornwell, Dr A Newton
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Measuring changes in large-scale natural phenomena in high resolution is difficult, particularly in remote or hazardous locations.
  QUADRAT DTP CASE: Geotechnical Properties of Glacial Tills: Engineering and Environmental Applications
  Dr D Hughes, Prof B Rea
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The geotechnical properties of a substrate (e.g. grain-size, permeability, shear strength) determines how it responds to natural and anthropogenic processes.
  QUADRAT DTP: Dynamics of carbon capture in Scottish and Irish peatlands over the past centuries
  Dr M Blaauw, Dr D Mauquoy
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Peatlands store and potentially release large amounts of carbon, and thus it is essential to predict their role in future warming (e.g., Gallego-Sala et al., 2018; Ferretto et al.
  QUADRAT DTP: Landscapes of Production: Exploring the Palaeaoenvironmental Context of Stone Tool Quarrying, Manufacture, Use and Deposition on Neolithic Shetland
  Dr W Megarry, Dr J E Schofield
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Landscapes of Production project will explore the palaeoenvironmental context of felsite tool quarrying in Neolithic Shetland.
  QUADRAT DTP: Medical Geology: The Impact of the Natural Environment on Health in Past Populations from Ireland and Scotland
  Prof E Murphy, Dr R Crozier
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The natural environment is inextricably connected with human health. The composition of underlying rocks and minerals have an impact on the air humans breathe, the water they drink, and the food consumed.
  QUADRAT DTP: PALLADIA: ParAíba do suL deLtA seDImentary dynAmics
  Dr R Flood, Dr C North
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Approximately half a billion people live on or near deltas, often in megacities with deltas understood as sensitive environments under pressure.
  QUADRAT DTP: Source-to-sink dynamics and palaeo-environment reconstruction from a dynamically evolving glacial foreland
  Mr A Ruffell, Prof B Rea
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The pathways of glacial meltwater, from surface ablation through to proglacial discharge, are a key component in understanding the role of hydrology and its influence on glacier dynamics.
