Three-dimensional mapping of a mid-ocean ridge hydrothermal system from electromagnetic data

Project Rationale. High-temperature hydrothermal circulation at mid-ocean ridges accounts for 30% of heat exchange between the Earth's interior and the deep ocean, controls global geochemical cycles, forms valuable seafloor mineral deposits and nourishes chemosynthetic life forms. Read more

Improving the utility of ocean colour satellites in marine systems science

Ocean colour satellites have revolutionised our capacity to characterise surface ocean ecosystems and biogeochemistry, allowing continuous global observation that would be impossible from any other platform. Read more

The impact of continental break-up on the global carbon cycle

Project Rationale. The rupture of continents and the formation of new ocean basins are perhaps the most dramatic phenomena in global tectonics but these processes are rarely shown in text book cartoons of the plate tectonic and biogeochemical cycles (e.g., Kelemen & Manning, 2015). Read more

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

The biology of Mesozoic birds

Project Rationale. The Mesozoic bird Confuciusornis sanctus lived in one of the most complex ecosystems of the Early Cretaceous, alongside many dinosaurs, but its life history today remains poorly understood. Read more

What does it take to survive in the future ocean? A comparative study on the adaptive potential of fish to ocean acidification.

Project Rationale. To truly understand the effects of climate change, in particular ocean acidification (OA), on marine fish we need to move away from measuring effects on single species and towards a more holistic understanding, both at the physiological as well as the molecular level. Read more

Resolving Antarctic meltwater events in Southern Ocean marine sediments and exploring their significance using climate models

Project Rationale. The principal aim of this project is to better understand the role of the Antarctic ice sheet in global sea level and rapid climate change by reconstructing Antarctic glacial discharge and modelling the impact of these freshwater fluxes on ocean circulation and climate.

Examining the evolutionary loss of calcification in coccolithophores

Project Rationale. Coccolithophores are unicellular photosynthetic organisms that build intricate calcium carbonate plates, called coccoliths, with which they surround themselves (see image here. Read more
