  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.
  Landslide nowcasting using advanced data analytics
  Dr A Abellan, Dr B Murphy, Prof T Wright
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The fast proliferation of new satellite, aerial and terrestrial remote sensing techniques has provided new technological and scientific opportunities to investigate geohazards during the last decade.
  ONE Planet DTP - Integrated modelling to predict early signs of land degradation (OP20297)
  Dr M Montero-Calasanz
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

2.2 million tonnes of topsoil is eroded annually in the UK and over 17% of arable land show signs of degradation (Fig.1). Reversing soil degradation and restoring fertility by 2030 is an aim of the government’s 25 Year Environment Plan but there are insufficient data on the health of UK soils.
  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.
  Testing the links between magmatic, tectonic and climate controls on hydrothermal activity at the Mid-Atlantic Ridge
  Dr A Lichtschlag, Dr B Murton, Prof R James
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. High temperature hydrothermal activity at mid-ocean ridges is driven mainly by magmatic heat and crystallization and responds to structural processes that open-up and maintain fluid pathways from the interior of the ocean crust to the seafloor.
