Seeking to broaden the range of canonical dramas (particularly around class, race and gender) through an intersectional approach, drawing out forgotten or ignored programming in British, US and/or world television systems.
  SCENARIO :Data synthesis and integration for improved climate impact assessment, modelling and policy
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr R Cornforth, Dr E Tarnavsky
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Climate change is already demonstrated in changes in the frequency and severity of extreme weather events.
  SCENARIO: A new approach to navigating uncertainty in climate-related hydrologic risk
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Prof T Shepherd, Dr K.A. Smith, Prof N Arnell, Dr G Darch
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Climate change poses a severe threat to the environment, and it is essential to be able to evaluate climate-related risk and provide appropriate guidance to decision-makers.
  SCENARIO: Analysis of peatland carbon dynamics using combined optical and microwave satellite data
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Prof K Morrison, Dr TL Quaife
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Peatlands are a key component of the terrestrial carbon cycle and sequester large amounts of carbon from the atmosphere. Monitoring their health and state is therefore key to understanding carbon dynamics and the important role peatlands play in the climate, and in climate change.
  SCENARIO: Flow processes and turbulent exchange in urban canopies
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr J Barlow, Dr O Coceal
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Most of the world’s population now experiences an urban version of weather extremes and climate change. Accurate forecasting of weather and air quality in cities relies on correctly representing the physics of turbulent exchange between the surface and the overlying atmosphere.
  SCENARIO: The role of post-tropical cyclones for European extreme weather
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr R Schiemann, Dr K Hodges, Dr L Shaffrey, Dr A Baker
