Can extreme internal waves trigger turbidity currents and carbon transport in submarine canyons? (HALL_UENV22ARIES)

Primary Supervisor - Dr Rob Hall. Secondary Supervisor - Dr Mike Clare (National Oceanography Centre, Ocean BioGeosciences). Supervisory Team - Dr Furu Mienis (Royal Netherlands Institute for Sea Research, Department of Ocean Systems), Dr Dorothee Bakker (UEA, ENV). Read more

Marine Soundscapes - finding and communicating biological signals within acoustic data collected by autonomous vehicles

Project Rationale. Our oceans are increasingly noisy due to increasing anthropogenic activities, particularly shipping. This noisiness impacts marine mammals and some fish species who rely on sound to communicate, find prey, and steer clear of hazards and predators. Read more

Climate, water and society in arid regions: from ancient civilizations to the Anthropocene

The largest region of arid climate stretches from North Africa, across the Middle East and into Central Asia. In these regions, water availability is an important restriction and yet this is where the first cities, first kingdoms and first empires rose and fell. Read more

Understanding changes in temperature persistence under global warming

A fully-funded PhD studentship is available in the physics of climate change. The project will focus on changes in surface temperature “persistence” - or “memory” under climate change. Read more

SCENARIO: Toward next generation sea ice models: taking the rough with the smooth? (ref: SC2022_01)

Sea ice, formed from the freezing of ocean water, covers a large fraction of the polar oceans and plays a central role in the climate system, moderating air-ocean transfers of heat, moisture and momentum, and moderating global patterns of atmospheric and oceanic circulation. Read more

Microbial and biogeochemical processes through the ocean-sediment continuum

  Research Group: Earth Surface Science
The interface between the ocean and subseafloor sediments is a critical boundary that influences life in the deep biosphere, the transport and transformation of organic carbon and nutrients, and the global carbon cycle. Read more

Predicting the Long-Term Changes in Earth's Magnetic Field

Earth's core has generated a magnetic field for billions of years; however, the nature of that field has varied considerably through time for reasons that are still poorly understood. Read more

Leaky Ocean Eddies (ZHAI_UENV22ARIES)

Scientific background. Mesoscale eddies are ubiquitous and most energetic features of the global ocean circulation. They play a key role in transporting and redistributing climatically important properties such as mass, heat, carbon and nutrients. Read more

Extreme weather in the tropics (MATTHEWS_UENV22ARIES)

Primary Supervisor - Professor Adrian Matthews. Secondary Supervisor - Dr Ben Webber (ENV, UEA). Supervisory Team - Dr Juliane Schwendike (School of Earth and Environment, University of Leeds. Read more
