  Emissions of Greenhouse Gases from Extensive Agriculture in the Indio-Gangetic Plain
  Dr H Boesch, Dr H Sembhi
Application Deadline: 8 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Agriculture is the world’s second-largest emitter of damaging greenhouse gases (GHG) after the energy sector. The future growth of the global population will result in additional pressures on the agricultural sector to secure food production whilst aiming to reduce GHG emissions.
  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.
