  Caribbean Subduction: Seismic Imaging of Melt and Volatiles in the Lesser Antilles with joint inversion, full-waveform, and machine learning approaches
  Dr C Rychert, Dr T Henstock
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Dense oceanic tectonic plates sink beneath buoyant continental plates at subduction zones. The ocean plate adds volatiles like water to the mantle, lowering the melting temperature, and enabling melting and eventually creating volcanoes at Earth’s surface.
  Climate Change, Plate Tectonics and Machine Learning
  Dr C Rychert, Dr J Whiteside
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Our understanding of the transition from the lithospheric plate to the weaker asthenosphere has recently been revolutionized by seismic imaging that finds a sharp, strong discontinuity at the base of the plate.
  Determining Earth’s Volatile Cycling using Machine Learning
  Dr C Rychert, Dr T Henstock
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Earth’s volatile cycle is fundamental to human existence on the planet. However, precise constraints on this system have proved challenging.
  Earth and Environment from Fiber Optic and Seismic Wave Analyses
  Dr C Rychert, Dr A Masoudi, Dr N Harmon, Prof M Srokosz
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Much of our direct imaging and understanding of Earth’s subsurface comes from data collected by relatively sparse deployments of seismometers.
  Onshore/Offshore Seismic Imaging of the New Zealand Subduction Zone
  Dr N Harmon, Prof L McNeill, Dr C Rychert
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. The behaviours and processes that occur at subduction zones inform our global understanding of plate boundary interaction at a variety of scales with broad implications for plate tectonics, volatiles cycling, seismic hazard and climate.
  Predicting the future: the paradox of transgenerational non-genetic inheritance in evolution (MAKLAKOVUBIO20ARIES)
  Dr A Maklakov, Prof T Chapman, Dr S Immler
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

SCIENTIFIC BACKGROUND. Parental environments can affect offspring performance over many generations.
  Climates of the Caribbean: What are the drivers and impacts of ocean and climate variability for Caribbean Islands? (STEVENSUMTH20ARIES)
  Prof D Stevens, Dr S Dye, Dr J Graham, Dr J Pinnegar
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

SCIENTIFIC BACKGROUND. The Caribbean Small Island Developing States face a variety of impacts from climate variability and climate change.
  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.
  Quantifying Variations in Hydrothermal Contributions to the Oceans:Scaling from drill core observations to global models
  Dr R.M. Coggon, Prof D Teagle, Dr B Thornton
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Ocean chemistry reflects a dynamic balance between riverine inputs, biological processing, sediment burial, and hydrothermal exchanges with ocean crust.
  Up in smoke! Terrestrial carbon cycle feedbacks during warm climates
  Dr J Whiteside, Dr I Harding
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Organic carbon preserved within sedimentary rocks (fossil OC) is a major carbon reservoir and plays a crucial role in the long-term evolution of atmospheric CO2 and O2, and thus global climate.
