  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.
  Geophysical properties of seafloor hydrate reservoirs
  Dr A Best, Dr S Sahoo, Dr L North, Prof T Minshull
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Globally, seafloor gas hydrates offer a strategic source of natural gas that may be equivalent in size to all known conventional gas reserves.
  Heat Transfer between the ocean and the seabed: implications for the effective operation of marine high voltage cables.
  Dr J Dix, Dr G Callender, Dr J Pilgrim, Dr T Henstock
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. The temperature of the sediments that surround buried marine high voltage cables play a critical role in their design, operation and maintenance.

  A combined framework of machine learning and full waveform inversion for electromagnetic sensing of infrastructure (Advert Reference: SF19/EE/MCE/WARREN)
  Dr C Warren, Prof J Martin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Electromagnetic sensing systems, such as Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR), are critical tools to allow us to evaluate the condition of surface and sub-surface infrastructure.
  Forecasting the future of Earth’s magnetic field using artificial intelligence
  Dr P Livermore, Dr C Davies
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The geomagnetic field is a fundamental component of Earth. Wrapping around our planet like an invisible force-field, it protects life on the surface along with modern electrical infrastructure from harmful solar radiation.
  Measuring, modelling and predicting the hole in the Earth’s magnetic field
  Dr P Livermore
Application Deadline: 19 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. The geomagnetic field is a fundamental component of Earth. Wrapping around our planet like an invisible force-field, it protects life from harmful solar radiation and influences the impacts of space weather on modern technologies, such as satellites and electrical power grids.
  Interactions between Mercury’s surface and its dynamic space environment
  Prof T Yeoman
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mercury is a unique body in the solar system in that its interaction with the interplanetary medium is via a magnetised body without any atmosphere or conducting ionosphere (the moon Ganymede, within the magnetosphere of Jupiter, is the closest analogue).
  Catastrophic change to Earth’s magnetic field
  Dr C Xuan, Prof P Wilson, Dr G Hellio
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Earth’s magnetic field provides a protective shield from harmful effects of the solar wind, but field strength and behaviour are constantly changing.
  Hydrate formation from CH4 released during serpentinisation. How important it is on Earth?
  Dr H Moreno, Dr G Bayrakci, Dr I Falcon Suarez, Prof D Teagle
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Methane hydrate is an ice-like substance that forms at high pressures and low temperatures when sufficient methane is available in continental margins and deep ocean sediments.
  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.
