  Bringing machine learning techniques to geophysical data processing
  Dr L Uieda, Dr S De Angelis
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Gravity and magnetic surveys offer a cost-effective method for investigating sedimentary basins, mineral deposits, active tectonics in the oceans, and overall crustal structure.
  Understanding and mitigating the environmental impacts of metal ore processing wastes produced using “green” solvents (CENTA2-SGGE9-JENK)
  Dr G Jenkin, Dr M Whelan
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Conventional mineral extraction from mined ores (e.g. for metals) is often an energy-intensive process, requiring either smelting or leaching at elevated temperature, or the use of large quantities of strong acids or bases that are energy intensive to produce.
  Using high resolution SAR imagery for volcano monitoring in SE Asia
  Dr S Ebmeier
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Susanna Ebmeier (Leeds), Cosupervisors. Yosuke Aoki (University of Tokyo), Andy Hooper (Leeds).
  Artificial Intelligence in volcano seismology and eruption forecasting
  Dr S De Angelis, Prof Y Lavallee, Dr L Zuccarello
Application Deadline: 9 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this project is to combine geophysical measurements with methods of Artificial Intelligence to monitor and forecast of volcanic eruptions.
  Large-scale mapping of the thickness of the crust from satellite gravity and gravity gradient data
  Dr L Uieda, Prof R Holme
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Geophysical methods offer a window into the deep Earth through indirect observations, such as disturbances in the Earth’s gravity field.
  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: New methods for the ’visualisation’ of dynamic and multi-dimensional data in Earth and environmental systems
  Dr C Bond, Prof J McKinley
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Digitalisation and large, multi-dimensional, dynamic data are now the main stay of Earth and Environmental Science, but how we visualise, handle, analyse and make decisions from these datasets is still a significant challenge.
  A Phosphorus Control on Oceanic Anoxic Events under Greenhouse Climates?
  Prof S Poulton, Dr C Marz, Dr B Mills, Dr R Newton
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Background.
  A hidden record of early animal evolution? Exploring the Cambrian diversity of acritarchs and small carbonaceous fossils (CENTA2-SGGE19-HARV2)
  Dr T Harvey, Prof M Williams, Dr B Pedder, Dr S Jensen
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Microfossils offer a rich record of early animal evolution and the attendant reconfiguring of ecosystems.
  Integrating trace element and automated mineralogical analysis (CENTA2-SGGE7-SMIT)
  Dr D J Smith, Dr T Knott, Dr G Jenkin
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Advances in instrumentation and software have dramatically improved our ability to rapidly analyse geological samples, obtaining detailed chemical, textural and mineralogical data.
  Disentangling landuse and climatic roles in sediment delivery to upland British lakes
  Dr H Sangster, Prof R Chiverell
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The studentship seeks to exploit existing datasets compiled at Liverpool for a series of catchments from around the UK and develop new sites to disentangle the competing roles of landuse and climate on sediment delivery to lakes.
  Avalanche dynamics on desert dunes: Processes and drivers, from ancient to modern
  Dr J Nield, Dr R Ewing, Dr M Baddock
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Avalanching is responsible for wind-blown dune migration on Earth and Mars and because avalanches are preserved in dune stratigraphy, they are the most direct way that we can interpret past wind-climate conditions.
  Catastrophic change to Earth’s magnetic field
  Dr C Xuan, Prof P Wilson, Dr G Hellio
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Earth’s magnetic field provides a protective shield from harmful effects of the solar wind, but field strength and behaviour are constantly changing.
  Geophysical properties of seafloor hydrate reservoirs
  Dr A Best, Dr S Sahoo, Dr L North, Prof T Minshull
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Globally, seafloor gas hydrates offer a strategic source of natural gas that may be equivalent in size to all known conventional gas reserves.
  Joint elastic-electrical properties of clay-rich sediments with fluid-filled fractures
  Dr A Best, Dr S Sahoo, Dr L North, Prof T Minshull
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Accurate characterization of shallow sub-seafloor geological reservoirs and overburden sediments is essential for geological CO2 storage, gas hydrate exploitation and monitoring of fluids and host sediment properties during gas production and CO2 storage activities.
