The project will identify historic marine heat waves from a large archive of high-resolution satellite sea surface temperature data and investigate the environmental factors causing them.The student will be based at the University of Auckland and working with a team from MetOcean, NIWA, and University of Otago.
  Understanding the rates and processes responsible for the movement of plastic through an estuary and potential accumulation
  Dr M Bowen, Assoc Prof G Coco
Application Deadline: 1 July 2019

Funding Type

  Host preferences & biocontrol of variegated tortoise beetle in New Zealand eucalypt forestry
  Dr T Murray
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

New Zealand has an expanding eucalypt forestry industry with a focus on sustainable production of naturally durable timber that does not require chemical treatment for in-ground use.
  Modelling wave-induced sea ice breakup on small and large scales
  Dr F Montiel
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sea ice is a key component of the climate system, which is experiencing significant changes as a consequence of global warming. The rapidly decreasing sea ice extent in the Arctic Ocean means solar radiations are increasingly being absorbed into the ocean, causing further melting and weakening of the sea ice cover.
