  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’.
  Squeeze and mingle: understanding the role of deformation-driven melt transport in mid-ocean ridge magma chambers (Bay of Islands ophiolite, Newfoundland, Canada)
  Prof C MacLeod, Dr J Bedard, Dr C J Lissenberg, Dr I Parkinson
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Background. We now realise our conceptual view of magma chambers as large melt bodies is outmoded. that they are instead predominantly melt-poor crystal mushes1.
  Dune worlds: novel geospatial approaches applied to Earth and Martian sand seas
  Dr M Baddock
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Application details. Reference number. CENTA20-LU1. Start date. 1 October 2020. Closing date. 10 January 2020. Interview date. Week beginning 3 February 2020.
  ONE Planet DTP - Flood infrastructure characterisation by drone, satellite and geospatial informatics (OP20264)
  Prof J Mills
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Flooding is considered by the UK Government to be one of the top risks to the nation, the 2017 UK Climate Change Risk Assessment identifying it as the uppermost environmental risk over the next century.
  ONE Planet DTP - Geospatial big data analytics for global water security (OP20265)
  Prof J Mills
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Global water security – ensuring a reliable and acceptable quantity and quality of water, and managing water-related risks for all – is foundational to sustainable development.
  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.
  Surface Deformation & Slope Instabilities in Deglaciating Mountain Environments
  Dr J Elliott, Dr D Quincey
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This exciting project aims to improve our understanding of the impact of glacial retreat on slope stability and surface and sub-surface deformation in high mountain areas.
  Pteraichnites’ and their implications for pterosaur terrestrial palaeoecology and evolution (CENTA2-SGEE8-UNWI)
  Dr D Unwin, Prof M A Purnell, Dr R Butler, Dr PL Falkingham
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pterosaurs, Mesozoic flying reptiles, were long considered to have been almost exclusively confined to aerial niches, with only limited mobility when on the ground (Unwin, 2005).
  How much can a landscape take?
  Dr R Duller, Dr J Lea, Prof P Burgess, Dr N Leonardi
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this project is to determine limits of landscape resilience to rapid hydrological change. Periods of rapid global warming have a dramatic effect on the Earth System (Knight and Harrison, 2013, Carmichael et al., 2017).
  Volcanic plumbing system dynamics and their impact on communities living near active volcanoes
  Dr J Kavanagh, Dr H Sangster
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this project is to develop a coupled physical and social volcanology model to inform and impact volcanic hazard assessment and management.
  Quantifying Variations in Hydrothermal Contributions to the Oceans:Scaling from drill core observations to global models
  Dr R.M. Coggon, Prof D Teagle, Dr B Thornton
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Ocean chemistry reflects a dynamic balance between riverine inputs, biological processing, sediment burial, and hydrothermal exchanges with ocean crust.
