  Blue carbon change on polar continental shelves with ocean colour & current dynamics
  Dr D K A Barnes
Application Deadline: 19 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Marine ice losses around the polar regions are one of the most fundamental physical responses of the Earth system to rising atmospheric greenhouse gas concentrations.
  Ocean sediment controls of essential trace metals in the Arctic-Atlantic gateway (MetalGate)
  Dr W Homoky, Prof C.L. Peacock
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Summary. In this project you will pioneer new trace elemental sampling and analyses of dissolved metals in marine sediment porewaters collected from a key, sensitive and unexplored region of the ocean floor.
  Energy flow and food webs in deep seafloor ecosystems: a multifaceted approach to testing deep-sea models with biochemical observations
  Dr R Jeffreys, Prof A Hirst, Dr B Bett, Dr J Durden
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The overall aim of this project is to determine how body size controls energy flow through deep-sea food webs using biomarkers and modelling approaches.
  Fingerprinting bioactive trace elements in a changing Arctic Ocean
  Dr M Lohan, Dr A Annett
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. The Arctic Ocean is undergoing dramatic environmental change and has warmed twice as fast as the rest of the planet.
  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.
  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.
  Provision or Poison? Biogeochemistry of sediments in a warming ocean
  Dr A Annett, Dr J Godbold
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. The importance of sediment processes in driving biogeochemical cycles, from blue carbon storage, to nutrients (silica, iron) and pollutants (lead, arsenic), are becoming increasingly recognized, from local to global scale [1].
  Scale dependency of benthic biodiversity and ecosystem functioning in the North Sea
  Dr J Godbold, Prof M Solan, Dr J Leyland, Dr C Garcia
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Marine ecosystems and the societal services they support are currently experiencing dramatic alterations due to direct and indirect human impacts such as overfishing, pollution, habitat modification and anthropogenic climate change.
  Temporal variability of the carbon system across the Atlantic Ocean; causes and implications
  Dr S Hartman, Dr R James, Dr P Brown, Dr A Schaap
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Approximately 25% of the carbon dioxide (CO2) produced by fossil fuel combustion enters the ocean. Without this sink, the rate of CO2 buildup in the atmosphere would be larger than it is.
  That sinking feeling - how do marine diatoms actively control sinking rates?
  Dr G Wheeler, Prof C Moore, Dr K Helliwell
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Diatoms are one of the most important groups of phytoplankton in our oceans and make a major contribution to the global carbon cycle.
