  Caprock and overburden characterisation: avoiding leakage of CO2 from CCS sites
  Prof RH Worden, Prof D Faulkner, Prof K Taylor, Dr P Armitage
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of the project is to produce unusual data to characterise the caprock and overburden to CCS sites in the UK and beyond. CCS is an essential piece of the technical jigsaw required to cut greenhouse gas emissions.
  Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) from depleted Sandstone and Carbonate/chalk reservoirs
  Dr P Jadhawar, Dr H Hamidi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nearly one third of the oil is left behind in the reservoir after the primary and secondary recovery methods of oil recovery.
  Exploitation and production from Methane Hydrate reservoirs (Arctic and Subsea porous media)
  Dr P Jadhawar, Dr J Derksen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Naturally occurring gas (mostly methane) hydrates along the continental margins (coastal offshore) and permafrost sediments are the clean source of energy outnumbering the rest forms of conventional energy sources.
  Improving the accuracy of displacement measurements and earthquake hazard maps from radar interferometry
  Prof A Hooper, Prof T Wright
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This exciting project aims to improve the accuracy of deformation measurements made from Space and apply this to improve our understanding of where earthquakes will occur.
  Stratified shear flows in inclined pipes
  Dr Y Tanino, Dr D Van der A
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Stably stratified shear flows are ubiquitous in the environment and industrial systems. In the atmosphere such flows are associated with clear air turbulence.
  The deep roots and internal structure of active and extinct seafloor massive sulphide deposits
  Dr G Bayrakci, Prof T Minshull, Dr B Murton
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Hydrothermal polymetallic seafloor massive sulphide (SMS) deposits form when seawater circulates within oceanic rocks driven by heat from below.
