  Assessing the impact of long-term SO2 exposure on aviation
  Research Group: Volcanology
  Prof M Burton, Dr C Hayer, Dr S Loughlin, Dr R Clarkson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Air travel is increasing globally, especially within regions surrounding the Pacific Ocean. The high density of volcanoes within that region means that the interaction between volcanic plumes and aircraft is expected to rise in the future.
  Impact of Sand and Dust on Engines
  Dr M Jones, Dr S Covey-Crump, Dr A Pawley, Dr N Bojdo
Application Deadline: 30 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sand and dust from arid regions is increasingly a problem for aircraft gas turbine engines, both military and civil.
  The Missing Sink? Controls on Iodine Migration in the Geosphere
  Prof F Livens, Prof J Lloyd, Prof K Morris
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

129I (t1/2 1.57 x 106 years) is a high yield fission product which has a complex and poorly understood biogeochemistry in the Earth’s subsurface.
  Dynamics of sand around tidal sand banks and the stratigraphic record
  Research Group: Geoscience
  Dr N Mitchell, Dr R Jerrett
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sand banks in macrotidal estuaries are highly dynamic. As their heights and locations change rapidly and continuously, sand banks are hazards to marine shipping and errors on nautical charts can lead to ships running aground.
  How rapidly are oceanic volcanic islands destroyed by erosion?
  Research Group: Geoscience
  Dr N Mitchell, Dr G Allen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

During and after volcanism has ended, volcanic ocean islands are progressively reduced in elevation by subsidence, giant landslides, coastal erosion, fluvial erosion and hillslope landsliding, ultimately creating shallow banks and guyots.
  Geography PhD opportunities
