Impacts of environmental change on UK coastal ecology for nature based solutions

Project Rationale. Nature-based solutions to natural hazards and environmental change offer the potential to protect, sustainably manage and restore natural or modified ecosystems while providing multiple other benefits for health, the economy and society. Read more

Autonomous technologies and the marine carbon cycle: Impacts of coastal processes on ocean acidification and blue carbon. NERC GW4+ DTP PhD studentship for 2022 Entry, PhD in Biosciences.

Project Background. Recent environmental and climate initiatives such as ‘habitat restoration’ and ‘Blue Carbon’ aim to increase local biodiversity, support carbon removal from the atmosphere, and alleviate the impacts of stressors such as ocean acidification and deoxygenation. Read more

NERC GW4+ DTP studentship - Sea sparkle: identifying and predicting bioluminescent blooms

Noctiluca scintillans1 (known as “sea sparkle”) is a bioluminescent dionoflagellate, found commonly in UK coastal waters. It is sometimes associated with harmful red tides, which threaten local ecosystems and fisheries through eutrophication2. Read more

Moving stories: narrating change along the shorelines of Spurn

About this project. . Applications are invited for a fully funded interdisciplinary PhD scholarship drawing upon the research methodologies of Literature and Marine Science to investigate the narratives of Spurn, and understand the interrelation of coastal ecology, communities and cultures.

Unhappy Bedfellows? Interactions between the invasive species Sargassum muticum and Threatened seagrass beds (Zostera spp).

Successful invasive species often escape top-down pressure in the early stages of invasion. However, emerging evidence suggests that over time local animal consumers can adapt to control and moderate nonnatives by incorporating invading species into their diets. Read more

Improving the representation of the ice shelf ocean cavity circulation in global ocean models (OP2209)

Global sea-level rise is one of the most severe impacts of climate change which threatens large coastal cities and ecosystems. Sea-level rise originates from several sources, including melting of glaciers and ice sheets. Read more

Quantifying Blue Carbon: kelp contribution to carbon sequestration in marine sediments

Even with carbon emission-reduction commitments the world is facing an average 3.5°C temperature rise. The promotion of kelp-derived blue carbon sequestration is emerging as an exciting opportunity to ameliorate climate change. Read more
