  Not just going with the flow: does biological production rather than deep water formation drive the Southern Ocean carbon sink?
  Dr P Brown, Prof A Naveira-Garabato, Dr N Briggs
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. The Southern Ocean (SO) is thought to have absorbed ~40% of all global human-derived (anthropogenic) carbon dioxide and >75% of anthropogenic heat, thus being disproportionately influential in mitigating increasing atmospheric CO2 levels and related climate effects.
  How do climate-driven shifts in phytoplankton communities influence carbon and nitrogen uptake and recycling along the west Antarctic Peninsula?
  Dr S Henley, Dr A Poulton, Prof K Davidson, Prof M Meredith
Application Deadline: 9 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project summary. Biological carbon and nutrient uptake and recycling will be examined at the west Antarctic Peninsula in relation to climate-driven changes in phytoplankton biomass and species composition.
  The physics and biology of the ocean carbon sink: how air-sea interactions affect organic carbon uptake and sequestration in the Southern Ocean.
  Dr D Jones, Dr A Martin, Prof A Naveira-Garabato, Prof E Murphy
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. The water masses leaving the Southern Ocean form a major conduit of atmospheric carbon into the interior of the global ocean.
  SCENARIO - Climate change and harmful algal growth using laboratory experiments, satellite remote sensing and biogeochemical modelling
  Dr S Roy
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Marine harmful algae cause huge economic and ecological damage through the production of toxins and removal of oxygen from marine waters, affecting the marine wildlife and commercial aquaculture.
  Tiny fractals in the sea: the biogeochemistry of particle shape
  Dr B Cael, Dr P Lam
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Particles* are a critical aspect of life and chemistry in the ocean. Marine particles are hotspots of biological activity, and their sinking mediates a major vertical transport of mass and energy that connects the sunlit and dark ocean ecosystems and fundamentally influences global biogeochemistry.
  Seascape genomics of Antarctic deep-sea coral: Groundtruthing larval dispersal models with genetic connectivity data
  Dr M Taylor, Dr O Hogg, Dr R Vieira, Dr R Ross
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Scientific background. Detailed understanding of dispersal and genetic connectivity is critical in determining processes underpinning population persistence and productivity, speciation, appropriate scales for management, and the potential for recovery from detrimental impacts e.g.
  Physical and biogeochemical controls on the marine primary productivity of the Galápagos Archipelago
  Prof A Naveira-Garabato, Dr A Forryan
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. The waters surrounding the Galápagos Archipelago (GA) are an iconic biological hot spot.
