  Palaeo Constraints on the 1.5°C World: What does the Pliocene tell us about the long-terms effects of atmospheric CO2 at ~400 ppmv
  Prof A Haywood, Dr D Hill
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The issue. Our ability to limit the rise in global temperature in line with the Paris Agreement is uncertain due to an inadequate understanding of the long-term sensitivity of the Earth and Climate System to CO2.
  Improving UK air quality forecasts during heatwaves
  Dr R Hossaini, Prof J Wild
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Poor air quality is a major global health concern affecting all industrialised nations and virtually all of society. Worldwide, ~3 million deaths are attributable to air pollution annually (World Health Organization), with ~40,000 premature deaths in the UK alone (Royal College of Physicians).
  ONE Planet DTP - Developing probabilistic precipitation datasets for high mountain regions in a changing climate (OP20298)
  Dr E Lewis
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Precipitation data is fundamental to understanding hydrological processes, yet precipitation patterns and variability in mountain regions are poorly understood.
  Evaluating and improving high-resolution high-impact weather numerical weather forecasts
  Dr RS Plant, Dr T Stein
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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 - Detecting severe weather with radars for observations-based nowcasting
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr T Stein, Dr C Westbrook
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Met Office have recently upgraded their weather radars to have Doppler and dual-polarization capabilities, which has produced a wealth of new measurements for data assimilation, model evaluation, and forecasting purposes.
  SCENARIO - Exploiting the benefits of convective-scale ensemble forecasts
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr SL Gray, Dr T Frame
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Accurate weather forecasts save lives and livelihoods and are important to a host of industries from energy to agriculture and retail.
  SCENARIO - Improving convective storm simulations through scale-adaptive and flow-adaptive sub-grid methods
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr RS Plant, Prof P Clark
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project is concerned with improving the numerical simulations required for short-range numerical weather prediction and small-scale regional climate prediction.
  SCENARIO - Turbulence and Clouds
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr H Weller, Prof P Clark
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The representations of clouds and associated buoyant atmospheric convection are arguably the weakest aspects of weather and climate models, leading to poor forecasts and unreliable projections of the regional impacts of climate change.
