  NERC GW4+ DTP Projects 2020: (Changing Planet) Modelling coupled human-water systems: Characterising human-water interactions and their impacts on future water scarcity
  Dr G Coxon
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

By 2050, it is projected that England will be facing severe water supply shortages due to climate change and increasing demand from growing populations and societal development.
  Understanding current and future impacts of public water supply on macronutrient cycles around the world
  Mr M Ascott, Dr B Surridge
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Globally, huge investment is made in infrastructure to obtain, process and distribute clean water to human society. These public water supply (PWS) processes also alter the movement of a wide range of chemical elements within the Earth system.
  Rivers of the dammed: how should beavers fit and function in UK landscapes?
  Dr S Dixon, Dr J Larsen, Prof V Gauci
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Beavers are one of nature’s most prolific “ecosystem engineers”, able to radically reshape river systems and the surrounding landscape, through their unique ability to build dams and alter the flow of water, sediment, and nutrients.
  The point-of-no-return for the Amazon? New insights from high-resolution atmosphere simulations
  Dr P Hopcroft, Dr M Widmann, Dr T Pugh
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Amazon basin contains the world’s largest rainforest. Dubbed the ‘lungs of the Earth’, this biome sequesters vast amounts of carbon dioxide and hosts countless species of flora and fauna.
  Our Place Our Future: Developing and testing an integrated climate risk framework for heritage sites in Scotland.
  Dr K Crowley
Application Deadline: 9 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change is not only threatening our future but destroying our past. Working with Historic Environment Scotland (HES) this project will examine the impacts to heritage sites in Scotland under future extreme climate risk scenarios.
  Unlocking Western Tropical Indian Ocean temperature and hydroclimate back to the Little Ice Age and the Holocene, reconstructed from coral geochemistry
  Prof J Zinke
Application Deadline: 21 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Indian Ocean sea surface temperatures (SST) play an important role in determining the location of precipitation over the tropics and the Indian Monsoon regions.
  Aquatic and gaseous carbon exchanges in managed land-systems in the British Uplands
  Prof R Chiverell, Dr J Dean, Dr S Whitehead
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Upland peatlands, significant carbon sinks and sources, are often managed landscapes responding to human pressures. New data and process models are needed to quantify aquatic and gaseous exchanges in the carbon cycle across the range of uses in the British uplands.
  SCENARIO - Causal discovery algorithms for the study of climate change impacts on the global water cycle
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr M.I. Hegglin, Dr V Ojha
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The water cycle plays a critical role in shaping the global environment and supporting life on Earth. Climate change is predicted to lead to changes in the water cycle, affect available water resources, and as a consequence endanger the livelihoods of societies especially in the developing world.
