  SCENARIO: How do trees affect the hydrological cycle?
  Dr E Blyth, Prof A Verhoef, Dr E Robinson, Dr T Nisbet
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
One of the least constrained components of the hydrological cycle is the amount of rainfall that is captured by the vegetation and recycled back to the atmosphere – the Interception.
  SCENARIO: Quantifying the flow and nutrient dynamic changes for a major flood relief scheme in the lower River Thames to better manage water quality and aquatic ecology
  Dr M Bowes, Mr M Clegg, Dr S Robinson, Dr M Hutchins
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
The Thames basin is very densely populated, containing one fifth of the UK population. It floods regularly, and climate change projections suggest that flooding will increase over the coming century, with 15,000 homes being at risk of inundation within the lower reaches of the catchment.
  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: Coupled carbon, water and heat fluxes over the global land surface
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Prof K Haines, Dr TL Quaife, Dr D Hemming
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Simulating changes to the Earth’s energy, water and carbon cycles is a key goal of climate and earth system models.
  SCENARIO: Enhancing forecasting flood inundation mapping through data assimilation
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr S L Dance, Dr S Vetra-Carvalho
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Flooding is major risk for lives and livelihoods around the world. In Europe alone, the annual cost due to flood damage is expected to rise to 100 billion EUR by the year 2080, due to a combination of climate change and socio-economic growth.
  SCENARIO: Evaluating and improving high-resolution high-impact weather numerical weather forecasts
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr RS Plant, Dr T Stein
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Over the past decade, high-resolution numerical weather forecasting has become practical using so-called “convection-permitting” models for lead times of 1-24 hours.
  SCENARIO: The feeder stream: investigating the mechanisms causing extreme precipitation in cyclones
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr H Dacre, Dr O Martinez-Alvarado
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Flooding events in Europe can cause huge economic losses, damage to infrastructure and fatalities. A good understanding of the physical processes that generate precipitation is important for forecasting precipitation and assessing the risk of subsequent flooding.
  SCENARIO: Nutrient release from coniferous woodland stimulated by changes in forest management: A new nitrate time bomb?
  Dr M Lukac, Mr M Ascott, Dr E Vanguelova
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Nitrogen (N) pollution of rivers and groundwater costs billions of pounds per year globally in water treatment and environmental damage from eutrophication.
