  Computational Efficiency and Better Understanding of River Deltas Using Lattice Botlzmann Method
  Dr N Leonardi
Application Deadline: 1 April 2019
River deltas are home to half a billion of people, are among the most productive ecosystem on earth, and constitute the main food source for many nations.
  Before the Inner Core? Palaeomagnetic field intensity measurements from Proterozoic-aged Scandinavian igneous and baked Rocks
  Prof A Biggin, Dr M Hill, Dr G Paterson, Dr J Salminen
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
The Proterozoic Eon (540 – 2500 million years ago) is the single largest in Earth’s history but very little is known about how the Earth’s magnetic field was behaving at this time.
  Earthquake-induced instabilities in orogenic and volcanic environments
  Prof Y Lavallee, Dr J Kendrick, Ms L.N Schaefer
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Landslides and sector collapses are frequent consequences of tectonic earthquakes (Keefer, 1984, 2002), and represent an important secondary hazard, costing the economy ~$2 billion annually in damage and causing thousands of fatalities in the last century.
  Fault systems and fluid-rock interaction in the Samail peridotite: implications for carbon capture in mantle rocks.
  Dr E Mariani, Prof J Wheeler, Prof L Crispini, Prof D Teagle
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
The Samail peridotite in the Oman Mountains is namely one of the largest peridotite bodies exposed on land and it was emplaced by obduction of oceanic lithosphere between 95 and 70 Ma (e.g Searle et al.
  Feeling hot, hot, hot! Harnessing energy from magma in New Zealand
  Dr J Kavanagh, Dr B Edwards, Dr G Kilgour
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Climate change, rising global populations, increasing energy consumption, and depletion of oil and gas reservoirs mean the exploitation of renewable energy resources, such as geothermal energy, is becoming increasingly important.
  Geophysical and stratigraphical evidence for sediment dynamics and catchment landscape evolution in UK lake basins
  Prof R Chiverell, Prof a Biggin, Dr R Smedley
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Understanding the evolution of landscapes is important. They record the complex interplay of natural processes, extreme events (magnitude and frequency), and with the intensification of land use, anthropogenic influences.
  Going round the twist: The effect of stress on magma intrusion in Scotland and the Canary Islands
  Dr J Kavanagh, Prof a Biggin, Dr D Dennis, Dr B O'Driscoll
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Introduction. Magma is transported through the crust in fractures called dykes that cut across rock layers. Dykes are important in all stages in the life of a volcano; they transport magma from depth but may stall during ascent or reach the surface to feed eruptions (see Kavanagh 2018 for a review).
  Improving Paleointensity: A key to understanding the past and future of Earth’s magnetic field
  Dr G Paterson, Prof R Holme, Prof A Biggin
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
The strength of Earth’s ancient magnetic field (paleointensity) is a uniquely powerful probe of the evolution of the planet on which we live, allowing constraint on Earth’s dynamics and thermal history.
  Monitoring magma rheology-seismicity feedbacks during volcanic eruptions
  Prof Y Lavallee, Dr J Kendrick, Dr S De Angelis, Dr P Papale
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Volcanic eruptions are associated with a range of geophysical signals, including ground deformation and seismicity (Bean et al., 2014; Chouet and Matoza, 2013; Gottsmann et al., 2011).
