BACKGROUND. The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) produces the Red List that classifies species’ extinction risks.
  Microplastic Transport in Environmental Flows
  Dr R Dorrell
Application Deadline: 13 December 2020

Microplastics are anthropogenic particles that range from micron to millimetre in size. Carrying biological and chemical pollutants they pose a significant risk to natural ecosystems and habitats.
  The inner workings of the earthquake cycle: New insight from integrating geophysical observations and microstructures
  Dr L Gregory, Dr S Piazolo
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Slip behaviour at and around faults has been shown to be highly dynamic with variability in behaviour occurring both spatially and temporally.
  The origin of pseudotachylytes in seismogenic fault zones and their role during slow interseismic creep
  Dr E Mariani, Prof D Faulkner, Dr L Menegon, Prof G Di Toro
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this project is to gain insight into the processes that control the seismic cycle by investigating the relationship between pseudotachylytes and associated mylonites in present-day as well as ancient seismogenic fault zones.
  Fine-scale electric fields and Joule heating from observations of the Aurora
  Dr R Fear, Dr D Whiter, Prof B Lanchester
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. The Earth’s aurora borealis (northern lights) are a spectacular natural phenomenon.
  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.
