  Bypass to deposition: Architecture and processes in deep-water turbidite transition zones
  Dr C Stevenson, Dr I Kane, Dr R Jerrett, Dr M Poyatos More
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Deep-water turbidite systems have transition zones where flows change their behaviour from bypassing to depositional, often associated with a break in slope and a distinct change in architecture from channels into lobes (i.e.
  Dehydrating on a Greek island: corundum formation in relation to fluid flow and deformation on Naxos
  Prof J Wheeler, Dr E Mariani, Dr J Urai
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Introduction. Dehydration reactions are fundamental to how the Earth works, and how H2O is carried around bound into minerals. During dehydration, bound H2O is given off in reactions which are often complex and involve a number of minerals.
  Resolving the frequency of mass movement events with new luminescence dating techniques
  Dr R Smedley, Dr E Mariani, Dr S Dunning, Dr J-P Buylaert
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Introduction. Luminescence dating is a geochronological technique important for reconstructing past environments on Earth over the last million years (see Smedley, 2018 for details).
  Volume changes during diagenesis and metamorphism: where are they?
  Prof J Wheeler, Dr E Mariani, Dr J Elvins
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Introduction. It is undeniable that in general metamorphic and diagenetic reactions involve both net and solid volume changes. For example olivine becomes serpentinised with an increase in volume on addition of water; anhydrite becomes gypsum with a 60% volume increase.
  Anatomy of subduction megathrust: a unique view from deep drilling into the Nankai Trough, Japan
  Prof D Faulkner, Dr J Bedford, Dr E Mariani
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Subduction zone megathrust earthquakes are the largest and most destructive on earth, with many rupturing the seafloor and generating devastating tsunamis such as that produced after the M9.0 Tohoku-Oki earthquake in 2011.
  Before the Inner Core? Palaeomagnetic field intensity measurements from Proterozoic-aged Scandinavian igneous and baked Rocks
  Prof A Biggin, Dr M Hill, Dr G Paterson, Dr J Salminen
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
The Proterozoic Eon (540 – 2500 million years ago) is the single largest in Earth’s history but very little is known about how the Earth’s magnetic field was behaving at this time.
  Calving behaviour, glacier dynamics and glacier stability in Greenland
  Dr J Lea, Dr N Leonardi, Prof D Mair
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Introduction. The calving of icebergs represent a varied range of processes that are currently too complex to be fully integrated into large scale ice sheet models (Benn et al., 2007; 2017).
  Can periodic sediment input signals make it through to the sedimentary archive?
  Dr R Duller, Prof P Burgess, Dr R Jerrett, Dr K Straub
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Introduction. “How can we accurately decode a sedimentary succession for periodic input sediment supply signals if we have gaps in the succession and signals are shredded?” A common assumption in stratigraphic analysis is the stratigraphic record presents us with an unbiased record of past landscapes & climate.
  Earthquake-induced instabilities in orogenic and volcanic environments
  Prof Y Lavallee, Dr J Kendrick, Ms L.N Schaefer
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Landslides and sector collapses are frequent consequences of tectonic earthquakes (Keefer, 1984, 2002), and represent an important secondary hazard, costing the economy ~$2 billion annually in damage and causing thousands of fatalities in the last century.
