Structure of the Azores plateau from earthquake seismology

The Azores Plateau is considered to have grown somewhat like Iceland, by excess volcanism at the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, and by volcanism continuing to historical times on the islands and in submarine areas around them. Read more

Open-path FTIR measurements of volcanic plumes

This project focusses on the measurement of volcanic plumes using ground-based open path Fourier transform spectroscopy, a powerful technique which allows quantification of volcanic gases in volcanic plumes. Read more

The role of the atmosphere in shaping and sustaining microbial communities on glaciers

  Research Group: Earth Surface Science
Supervisors. James Bradley, Queen Mary University of London, UK. Anne Jungblut, Natural History Museum, UK. Co-supervisors. Chris Greening, Monash University, Australia. Read more

Quantum optical networking and communication

Applications are invited for a self-funded, 3-year full-time or 6-year part time PhD project. The PhD will be based in the School of Mathematics and Physics, and will be supervised by. Read more

Solar Tsunamis

The Solar Tsunamis Endeavour Programme is an international collaboration led by the University of Otago to understand how New Zealand’s energy infrastructure will be impacted by an extreme space weather event. Read more

Full waveform seismic processing for mineral exploration

The search for very deep deposits is becoming more and more important in mineral exploration. Due to the absence of surface indicators and the prohibitive cost of deep drilling, indirect methods, such as geophysical surveys, are essential in such context. Read more

Cosmic-Ray Muons in Different Applications

  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
Cosmic-ray muons are known to be useful in applications beyond particle astrophysics. They have helped with mapping structure of volcanoes and with finding voids in various geological structures. Read more

Foam improved oil recovery

Typically in oil and gas production, only a small fraction of the oil present manages to flow out of an oil reservoir under the reservoir’s own pressure. Read more

Fully-Funded OIST International PhD Program

The Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University (OIST) accredited in 2011 as a graduate university located in a beautiful subtropical island of Okinawa, Japan. Read more

Quantum magnetometers for healthcare and fundamental physics

The combination of atomic magnetic resonance with emerging optical and photonic technologies is enabling the development and application of new quantum magnetometers with exciting applications in healthcare, geophysics, navigation and industrial applications. Read more

Improved time-stepping schemes in weather and climate models

"The task of predicting weather and climate may be reduced to the following iterative procedure. First, given the state of the system at any time (the input), use the governing equations to compute the state at a slightly later time (the output). Read more
