  A big data virtual investigation of chemistry in the upper troposphere
  Dr E Marais
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The global upper troposphere (8-12 km overhead) is a profoundly important part of the atmosphere that impacts climate, air quality and the chemical composition of the atmosphere.
  Plastic in rivers: transport, behaviour and fate (CENTA2-SGGE16-GABB)
  Prof S E Gabbott, Dr C Russell, Prof S Rice
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Rivers feed the world’s oceans with freshwater, sediment and more recently with large quantities of plastic. Estimates of the amount of plastic entering the environment via fluvial systems are challenging to constrain and range from 4.8-12.7 million tonnes in 2010 (Jambeck et al., 2015).

  Using Novel Earth Observation Sensors to Map Aerosol particles and Air Quality over Cities (CENTA2-PHYS11-REME)
  Prof J Remedios, Prof H Boesch
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Airborne particles play a critical role in environmental science with major implications for climate and air quality.
  Chasing convective storm evolution with swarms of space-borne Ka-band radars (CENTA2-PHYS10-BATT1)
  Dr A Battaglia, Prof H Boesch, Dr K Mroz
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Convective storms are the heart of the Earth’s weather and climate system.
  Geomagnetically Induced Currents generated by Space Weather Events (CENTA2-PHYS9-IMBE)
  Dr S Imber, Dr D Wright, Prof S Milan
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Geomagnetically-induced currents (GICs) are induced at the Earth’s surface due to rapid changes in the geomagnetic topology caused by the interaction of the planetary magnetic field with the solar wind.
  Investigating space weather in the Ionosphere and Magnetosphere with induction coil magnetometer data (CENTA2-PHYS8-YEOM)
  Prof T Yeoman, Dr D Wright, Dr C Beggan, Prof A Thomson
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In June 2012, the BGS Geomagnetism team installed two 100 Hz sampling rate induction coil magnetometers in the Scottish Borders, which measure very rapid changes of the geomagnetic field.
  Solar energy input from the Earth’s magnetosphere to its atmosphere (CENTA2-PHYS7-WRIG)
  Dr D Wright, Dr S Imber
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The interaction between the Sun’s and the Earth’s plasma environments is very dynamic and one of societal and commercial importance.
  A multi-observational approach to understanding urban air quality in Kenya (CENTA2-PHYS6-VAND2)
  Dr J Vande Hey, Dr R Cordell
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Air pollution is major contributor to the burden of disease globally, with more than 4 million premature deaths each year attributed to outdoor fine particulate matter exposure alone.
  Smarter analysis of satellite data for air quality regulators (CENTA2-PHYS5-VAND1)
  Dr J Vande Hey, Dr E Ferranti
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Satellite observations are increasing in spatial resolution providing a new source of data for policy makers and regulatory organisations.
  Investigations of atmospheric gravity waves with SuperDARN (CENTA2-PHYS4-MILA)
  Prof S Milan, Prof T Yeoman
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The upper atmosphere of the Earth is a complex, vertically coupled system.
  Eyes in the Sky on the Volatile Soup of Air Pollution Down Below (CENTA2-PHYS3-MARA2)
  Dr E Marais, Prof P Palmer
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Air pollution is one of the greatest global risks to human health. In Europe there are ambitious plans to reduce our exposure to poor air quality by targeting pollution emitted by multiple anthropogenic sources.
  Are Rockets the Next Air Pollution Frontier? (CENTA2-PHYS2-MARA1)
  Dr E Marais, Prof R Ambrosi
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Rockets are frequently launched into space and it’s getting cheaper and easier to do so. Even the UK has ambitious plans to host its own horizontal and vertical launch sites.
  Diagnosing the Urban Carbon Cycle with Earth Observation (CENTA2-PHYS1-BOES)
  Dr H Boesch, Dr H Sembhi
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Reducing carbon emissions to prevent damaging climate change is one of the grand challenges of our time. Due to the Paris agreement most countries have now committed to reducing emissions of greenhouse gases.
